‘Oceans 8’ Trailer.

I pray this isn’t another Ghostbusters situation on our hands.

Seriously though, I’m all for this fantastic group of women getting together to make a heist movie, but I don’t think it needs to be an ‘Oceans’ movie.

Sandra Bullock leads this all-star cast as “Debbie Ocean,” Danny’s little sister. I love the Ocean movies so much, I hold them dear to my heart. I don’t think you mess with the success of this franchise, unless you have a future plan of combining these two groups of people for an epic Oceans 14. It just doesn’t make sense, this doesn’t need to be set in the same universe, change the title and just make a really good movie about female con-artists. I’m sure they will sprinkle in a few cameos here and there throughout the movie, but I don’t know, it makes it feel like a cop-out.

This cast is stacked, Bullock, Paulson, Blanchett, Munn, Hathaway, Dakota Fanning, Bonham-Carter, Holmes, Rihanna, Kaling, I could honestly keep going, this movie is full of star power. So why not have a woman directing these leading ladies of Hollywood? Gary Ross is directing, the guy behind some of the Hunger Games, but I think they should have totally gotten a women to do this. With everything that’s goes on in Hollywood, more people think woman should direct, which is true, this would have been the perfect chance to do just that. A movie about women, directed by a woman, makes sense to me.

The premise is much smaller than what we are accustomed too, usually these movies deal with casinos, this is about a 100 million dollar necklace, 150 million sorry. I really hope they pull this thing off, do I want to see Danny and the boys back together? Absolutely right I do, and I think so does everyone else. Add in these lovely ladies and I think you’ll have a real winner. I’m hoping the execution of Oceans 8 is pulled off as well as the heists in Oceans 11 and 13.

‘Logan Lucky’ Trailer Comes Out of Nowhere! 

Sadly, this isn’t a sequel to Logan, sorry to burst your bubble.

So this trailer just came out of the middle of nowhere. It’s funny, just last weekend I watched Oceans 11 and 13, and always forget just how much I enjoy those movies! So when Steven Soderbergh’s newest movie trailer dropped I was a little curious. What can I say, this was just a flat out home run!

The cast, the story, and just the overall trailer, Logan Lucky, might be the surprise of 2017! So it seems like Adam Driver and Channing Tatum are going to play brothers, who might not seem all that smart, but like any good Soderbergh story, an awesome heist is about to happen. The brothers plan on hitting a NASCAR event and they need the help from Lucky Logan, who will be played by none other than James Bond himself, Daniel Craig. Don’t get me wrong, Craig is a terrific actor, but to me, it seems like he’s finally going to do some real acting in this. He’s completely gone off the deep end for his character and I’m really excited to see him play this part. The rest of the cast is insanely packed, so packed, that it’s actually a burden to write everyone down. So take a look for yourself, you know how Soderbergh likes big assembles for his movies!

Coming at the end of August, this could end up being a really good way to end the summer movie season. There’s nothing I love more, than when a trailer drops and you just had no idea this movie was even coming. It’s just refreshing, it seems unique and it’s not a franchise or a sequel or a reboot. Really hoping this one pans out.

Check ya later.
