Watch: The First Trailer for 'Oceans 8' Starring Rihanna, Sandra Bullock, Sarah Paulson, Mindy Kaling & More Has Arrived [Video]

After what seems like an eternity, the first trailer for the highly-anticipated ‘Oceans 8’ has arrived!

In the film, Debbie Ocean (played by Sandra Bullock) assembles her team of eight women to pull off a major Met Gala heist.

via Billboard:

Sandra Bullock takes center stage as the heist leader in the first official Ocean’s 8 trailer, but she’s joined by glamorous hacker Rihanna (aka “Eightball”) in the nearly 3-minute teaser that sets up the all-female reboot of the series that originally starred Bard Pitt, George Clooney and their own gang of elegant bad guys. The trailer, which dropped Tuesday morning (Dec. 19) sets up the elaborate premise of the film, which has the all-star team of thieves — which includes Mindy Kaling, Cate Blanchett, Awkwafina, Sarah Paulson and Helena Bonham Carter — plotting to snatch a $150 million diamond necklace from Anne Hathaway’s neck at the annual Met Gala.

Unable to shake the allure of the Ocean family business, Bullock recruits her killer crew, including internet savvy Rihanna, who appears briefly in a scene where she introduces herself to Bullock’s character from behind a computer. “What’s your name?” Bullock asks her. “Nine Ball,” Rihanna replies from behind round Lennon-style glasses and a cascading head of locs. “What’s your real name?” Bullock asks a second time. “Eight ball,” Rihanna tells her.

The irony of Rihanna showing up to steal at the Met Gala as if she doesn’t show up and steal the Met Gala every year is too funny.

Watch the trailer below.
