The caper is set: See Rihanna as a computer hacker in Ocean’s 8 trailer


Warner Bros. 2017/Barry WetcherReady for your first glimpse of Rihanna in the all-female heist flick, Ocean’s 8?

In the just-released new trailer for the film, we see the singer as a computer hacker named Nine-Ball, recruited by con artist Debbie Ocean to help perpetrate the crime of the century.

The caper: steal a necklace worth $150 million from the neck of Daphne Kluger, played by Anne Hathaway, at New York’s Met Gala. Sandra Bullock stars as Debbie — apparently, the estranged sister of Danny Ocean, played by George Clooney in the first three Ocean’s movies.  

The other ladies include Cate Blanchett‘s Lou, Mindy Kaling‘s jewelry forger, and a fashion designer played by Helena Bonham Carter, plus Sarah Paulson, Awkwafina and an apparently unspecified eighth conspirator — is it Hathaway’s Kluger?

Danny Ocean also has a brief cameo in the trailer.  His name appears on a slab of marble in a mausoleum as Debbie sits in front of it, sipping a martini.  Apparently, he died in 2018.  Or did he?

This will be Rihanna’s most high-profile acting role to date. She previously had smaller roles in films including Battleship and Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets.

Ocean’s 8 opens June 8.
