With a heist crew that includes Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Rihanna, Anne Hathaway, Helena Bonham Carter, Sarah Paulson, Mindy Kaling and Awkwafina, how can you not be stoked for Ocean’s 8? Just in case you needed a little extra convincing, Paulson has debuted the first official poster for the Steven Soderbergh-produced sequel / spinoff, and it has one hell of a tagline.
While Colossal may not have broken box office records, it was a welcome reminder that Anne Hathaway deserved better than whatever rom-com hell we’d locked her in for the past few years. In fact, as Lauren Duca recently pointed out on Twitter, now would be a perfect time revisit our opinions of the actress altogether, dating all the way back to her breakout role in The Princess Diaries. I mean, it can’t be a coincidence that now that we’re learning to appreciate Hathaway again, we’re suddenly getting talk of another Princess Diaries movie. These strange things happen all the time.
Amy Schumer has seen better days. Back in May, her big-screen vehicle Snatched was savaged by critics, who were pretty much the only people to actually go see the film. That followed a mini-controversy surrounding a video Schumer recorded of her and some chums on set performing Beyoncé’s single “Formation,” which now feels like a faint memory from a more innocent time. On top of all that, Schumer had to part ways with the live-action treatment of the Barbie doll line currently in the works at Sony. The good news, for Sony at least, is that they’ve found a suitable replacement. And she’s got Oscar bona fides.
