The all female Ocean’s Reboot is set for release next summer, and because the powers that be knew that that was too long a wait, they’ve started giving us little glimpses at the movie.
At first glance, the poster features 8 badass women – Sarah Paulson, Mindy Kaling, Rihanna, Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Awkwafina, Anne Hathaway, & Helena Bonham Carter – in amazing coats getting ready to slay a heist at the MET Gala. Upon further inspection however, it becomes increasingly apparent, and infuriating, that the 3 women of colour in the movie have been shoved to the back of the poster in the smallest possible fractals. Hopefully the movie does not play into this weird attitude and gives these women an equal opportunity to shine. It’s true that in the Clooney Ocean’s movies, not everyone had the same screen time, but this movie hopefully knows better than to treat the women of colour as background props. Hopefully.

Ocean’s Eight will be in theatres in the summer of 2018, giving it plenty of time to redeem itself.
