First Look: Ocean’s 8 Press Conference and Photocall

Hello everyone!

Cate Blanchett Hopes Ocean’s 8 Is ‘Encouraging Children to Crime’

Midway through Ocean’s 8, there’s a scene where Sandra Bullock’s exquisitely coated Debbie Ocean faces a mirror and reminds herself why she’s decided to rob the Met Gala: not for man, not for herself, she says, but for the 8-year-old girl out there who could be inspired to lead a life of crime. At an extravagant press conference for Ocean’s 8 held next to the Temple of Dendur at the Metropolitan Museum of Art today, one reporter asked the cast if they really were trying inspire 8-year-old girls with their work. What effect would these “strong female roles” have? “Encouraging children to crime,” Cate Blanchett deadpanned.

Mindy Kaling then took the conversation in another direction, pointing out that the film provides positive representation of another, noncriminal sort in the fact that the characters are “orchestrating a crime, rather than fighting over a man.” Sandra Bullock pointed out that there is a man the characters in Ocean’s 8 fixate on, but more because he’s a target, not a love interest. The film aces the Bechdel test and probably earns a heap of extra credit on the assignment. “Our conversations are not about that man, and I think that’s very exciting,” Kaling said.

Really, being a criminal is just another form of self-actualization. “To an 8-year-old girl, maybe we’re not trying to say, ‘Go have a life of crime,’” Anne Hathaway added, “But we’re saying, ‘Go do what you want, there’s space for you.’” She commended it for having a “everybody in” message, and for showcasing a variety of perspectives. “One thing we’re also saying in that 8-year-old girl moment is — and there’s nothing wrong with it — but you don’t have to grow up to be a princess,” director Gary Ross said. Or really, if you do become a princess, become one whose skills would be useful in a heist.

The Ocean’s 8 Cast Never Thought A Movie With So Many Women Would Get Made

At an Ocean’s 8 press conference Tuesday at the Temple of Dandur at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Sandra Bullock confessed that, when she first heard of Ocean’s 8, she didn’t think it would get financed.
“I thought it was a fun idea. I didn’t at the time think the movie would get made,” Bullock told reporters.
Seven of the eight cast members of the film appeared at the conference alongside director Gary Ross and screenwriter Olivia Milch. They discussed the novelty of an all-women heist movie, and what it feels like to have eight of Hollywood’s biggest names on the same bill. Blanchett, who plays the Brad Pitt to Bullock’s George Clooney in this iteration of the Ocean’s franchise, added that just a few years ago, this movie seemed like an “impossibility.”
“Isn’t it interesting — two or three years, this seemed like an impossibility. Like, how could we possibly get this made? And it’s so great that it’s being released now, and you go, ‘Well, of course.’ A lot has shifted,” Blanchett revealed.
Gary Ross, the film’s director, added, “There are more ‘of courses’ now than there were then.”
Rumors about an all-women Ocean’s movie emerged in late 2015, years after Steven Soderbergh stated that he would not be making an Ocean’s Fourteen. Given the historically male format of the movies — Frank Sinatra starred in the original, and Clooney dominated Soderbergh’s remakes — this seemed like a pipe dream. But by summer of 2016, the rumor earned credibility with the news that the movie had a fully stacked cast. (Elizabeth Banks was initially reported to be in the film, but she later dropped out.) The movie’s titular 8 are as follows: Mindy Kaling, Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Rihanna, Awkwafina, Helena Bonham Carter, Sarah Paulson, and Anne Hathaway.
“I’m really excited for the moment that this doesn’t feel special anymore,” Hathaway said of the film. In the movie, she plays a fame-crazed celebrity who’s wearing the necklace Sandra Bullock’s character plans to burgle.
The massive cast did manage to bond during the film, Bullock added, even though their schedules didn’t really allow for it. “I think we managed to connect on a level that we never ever would have been given a chance [to connect on] because we — women, you know, there’s five roles [in Hollywood] and we’re all looking for them, and they’re all lone little islands, and here we were, Hawaii, and all the other islands,” she said, talking her way through the metaphor. In case you’re wondering, the cast does have a group text.
“You guys all know about the Bechdel test,” Kaling said, referring to the Bechdel-Wallace test, which asks if a film contains two female characters who talk about something other than a man. “This passes it with flying colors. I mean, the fact that we’re orchestrating a crime as opposed to fighting over a man. There’s isn’t even a specter of a man.”
It’s rare — indeed, maybe unprecedented — that an action film would feature eight women collaborating on one massive heist. Much less eight women who are funny, glamorous, and not in the midst of romantic turmoil. It’s a mark of a greater cultural shift that sees value in telling interesting female-driven stories.
Hathaway added, “You can’t underestimate the power of visual representation. So, to an 8-year-old girl, we’re not trying to say, ‘Go have a life of crime,’ but we’re saying, ‘Go do what you want. Go do what you want [because] there’s space for you. There’s space for you to do it with your friends. And there’s room for all of you.'”
And to think — two or three years ago, this might not have been greenlit.

New still for Ocean’s 8 starring Sandra Bullock and Cate Blanchett

Good evening, USA Today released a brand new image from the Ocean’s 8. The film is featured in a list of 10 movies you must see this summer.

‘Ocean’s 8’ (June 8)

Stars: Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Anne Hathaway, Helena Bonham Carter, Sarah Paulson, Rihanna and Awkwafina

Director: Gary Ross

The skinny: In a spinoff from George Clooney’s Ocean’s Eleven trilogy, Debbie Ocean (Bullock) has spent more than five years in jail planning the perfect heist. Now a free woman, she and her right-hand woman Lou Miller (Blanchett) round up a crew to rob New York’s Met Gala of $150 million worth of diamonds. Each has a distinct skill set and Lou “has an excellent address book,” Blanchett says. “She knows all the right wrong people and is laid-back enough to listen while Debbie talks and talks and talks.” To get their gala feeling “like the real thing,” Vogue editor in chief Anna Wintour went over every detail, “including the napkin color,” adds Blanchett, whose favorite moments often came in the makeup trailer. “Those Ocean’s ladies scrubbed up beautifully.
