With the Ocean's trilogy (Ocean's Eleven, Ocean's Twelve and Ocean's Thirteen) famously centered around a male cast, the most recent addition is set to move with the times.

Ocean's 8 follows a group of wonderfully wicked crooks as they attempt to pull of the heist of the century. With Debbie Ocean (estranged sister of Danny Ocean) being released from prison, she longs for a rush of adrenaline, and finds herself assembling a team of like-minded women as they plan to steal a necklace worth in excess of $150 million from the world famous Met Gala.

What Can We Expect From Girl Power Ocean's 8? 

Reportedly combining both fashion and humour, the awesome cast create a "fun-flick", centered around the planning and execution of the heist. Although some critics have stated that this adaptation does not live up to George Clooney's original offering (in Ocean's Eleven, Twelve and Thirteen), maybe we should start taking reboots and sequels with a pinch of salt.

Okay, so we get it, this may not be the original, but why shouldn't we embrace this modern adaptation on a retro classic?!
