The first trailer for “Ocean’s 8”, which takes place in the “Ocean’s” heist movie universe, but features an all-woman squad, rather than the testosterone-heavy team of previous “Ocean’s Trilogy” movies, was released today.

Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Helena Bonham Carter, Anne Hathaway, Rihanna, Sarah Paulson, Mindy Kaling, and Awkwafina star as the crew.

Bullock plays Debbie Ocean, the sister of Danny Ocean, who appears to have died, if the trailer, which features a scene of Debbie having a drink at the tombstone of Danny, is to be believed.

The trailer opens with Debbie speaking a parole hearing and saying that she is ready to go straight, “If I were to be released, I would just want the simple life,” she says. “I just want to hold down a job, make some friends … you know, pay my bills.”

But of course, the pull of the life is too strong.

“Why do you need to do this?” Blanchett’s character Lou asks.

“Because, it’s what I’m good at,” Debbie responds.

The heist revolves around stealing a $150 million necklace from Anne Hathaway’s character at the Met Gala in New York City.

Damian Lewis plays the main villain. And Matt Damon and Carl Reiner reprise their roles from the “Ocean’s” movies. Many other actors are set to appear in smaller roles. The film directed by Gary Ross and written by Ross and Olivia Milch.

“Ocean’s 8” is set for theaters on June 8, 2018.
