Its just an all female reincarnation of the original...why? Because Hollywood didnt learn their lessons from the all female Ghostbusters remake...cause that worked out great.

Yes.

Yep. exactly. PUSSY POWER! :joy_cat:

Actually, that's fine with me, as I had grown tired of Hollywood doing sequel after sequel after the Ocean's Eleven remake... Ocean's Twelve... Ocean's Thirteen... enough was enough, and an Ocean's Fourteen would've been too much.

was wondering if it was connected then saw the trailer immediately thought ghost busters

God, the new trailer made it look even worse.

Aparently this 'Ocean' is the sister...

It seems to be meant to set up a trilogy, hence Ocean's 8 (supposedly to allow for 9 & 10 afterwards), so they're counting on it working and will probably leave plotlines and such open for this...

I'll reserve judgement until I've seen the movie, but having seen the teaser/trailer in cinema, I can't say it seems encouraging... The original Sinatra version was fun, as was the remake... They had both the comraderie of a night out with friends as well as a sense of danger... The remakes had the bonus of Soderberg's directing and visuals... This one seems like a much more conventional film, 'cute' and a little bland... BUT I never judge a movie by it's trailer...

I don't plan on seeing it, but I might end up going with friends who want to see it...

SO, because one all female remake failed- then Hollywood should never do another all female remake ?

Hello Movie_nazi.

No, I think most remakes are garbage BUT if you insist on remaking it you gotta put a little more effort into the film besides making the cast female. I can hear the shop talk now:

Hey guys, guys! I gotta an idea! It'll be FABULOUS! How 'bout we do Ocean's 11, but with... (drum roll) are ya ready for this? But with FEMALES ! OMG! What a WONDERFUL idea!

This spin off seems almost as asinine and as pointless as those top ten best films of the year 1066 threads on this site.

No soup for OddRob! To appease the false narrative? Don't they want ALL movies to falsely show woman in charge? Personally I thought movies were correctly slanted. No need to remake McArthur female or an all female wwII commando squad. Navy seals...go do the work (or crime or evil), then get the credit? W/O a casting coach that EVERYONE knew about! REALITY! Who must register for draft? You've come a long way baby! Isn't bruce gender female of the year anyway? And thanks Renovatio I wondered why the fem number was smaller! So it is a pre-spinoff?

take it easy guys... it was clearly a misunderstanding that escalated this...

Anyway, is the movie out yet? Haven't been to the movies in ages... have been traveling..
