The poster for Ocean's 8 has arrived, and with it comes the best tagline of 2017
"Every con has its pros."
17 years after George Clooney assembled ten of his most handsome friends to take down three Vegas casinos, this time the ladies are showing them how it's done.
Sandra Bullock plays Debbie Ocean, the estranged sister to George's Danny, and she's got her eye on the Met Gala. Exactly why she wants to perform a heist there, and what exactly she has in her sights, is still being kept highly under-wraps.
Before she can pull off the con, however, she must assemble the team, and from the poster, we can see that team consists of Cate Blanchett, Anne Hathaway, Mindy Kaling, Sarah Paulson, Awkwafina, Rihanna and Helena Bonham Carter.

Outside of that frankly insanely brilliant line-up, the cast is also set to include Olivia Munn, Matt Damon (possibly reprising his role as Linus, or maybe just playing himself at the Met Ball?), Dakota Fanning, Richard Armitage, Katie Holmes, James Corden, Adriana Lima, Kim Kardashian, Hailey Baldwin, Kylie Jenner, Zayn Malik, Anna Wintour, and we're sure the playing-themselves-cameo list won't end there.
Directed and co-written by Gary Ross (The Hunger Games, Pleasantville), there is huge scope here for the Ocean's franchise to continue on anew after the disappointing 12 and good-but-not-great 13, plus room for the two Ocean siblings to join forces for a Gravity reunion and plan the biggest heist imaginable.
And can we give some props to that incredible tagline? Sometimes the smartest stuff really is the simplest, and "Every con has its pros" is a piece of simple genius. Kudos to whoever came up with that. If there is a Best Tagline Award for Hollywood, we have this year's winner right here.
Ocean's 8 will be released in cinemas in Ireland & the UK on 22 June 2018.
