The first trailer for Ocean’s 8 is here. The highly-anticipated clip shows how Debbie Ocean (played by Sandra Bullock) assembles her team of eight for a major Met Ball heist.
RiRi stars as Nine Ball, a dreadlocked computer hacker in the star-studded trailer. Asked for her name, she replies, “Nine Ball.” When pushed for her real name, she defiantly responds: “Eight Ball.”
The film also features Cate Blanchett, Anne Hathaway, Mindy Kaling, Sarah Paulson, Awkwafina, and Helena Bonham Carter. Promising dramatic arguments, schemes, and lots of diamonds, the trailer notes that “Every con has its pros.”
Rihanna is no stranger to acting after starring in “Bates Motel,” Annie, Battleship, and this year’s Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets.
The real Bad Gal will take over the Met Gala next year, as well, as she is slated to co-host the annual event along with Amal Clooney and Donatella Versace.
Ocean’s 8 hits theaters June 8.
