The teaser for the Ocean's 8 trailer asks a very wise question

“Why do you need to do this?” That’s what Cate Blanchett asks Sandra Bullock at the beginning of a newly released 15-second teaser for the upcoming all-female heist movie Ocean’s 8. She’s presumably referring to Debbie Ocean’s (Bullock) career in high-profile larceny, but the same could be said of making trailers for trailers, a practice that began in the superhero sphere and has since grown to infect all manner of high-profile releases. “Because it’s what I’m good at,” Bullock quips, although a quick shot of her drinking a martini in front of Danny Ocean’s (George Clooney) grave implies a more complex and personal motivation for her crimes.

Ocean’s 8 co-stars Rihanna, Anne Hathaway, Helena Bonham Carter, Sarah Paulson, Mindy Kaling, and rapper Awkwafina, and is set to hit theaters on June 8, 2018. The trailer, meanwhile, debuts tomorrow.
