If the critical raves surrounding the first two seasons of The Crown weren’t enough to get you to watch, maybe the casting of Helena Bonham Carter will.

ocean's 8 trailer

They’re good at what they do, and they look good doing it.

The all-female reboot Ocean’s 8 has finally dropped its first trailer, and it looks stylish, sleek, as perfect as you’d imagine a movie starring some of Hollywood’s most talented actresses would be. Sandra Bullock stars as Debbie Ocean, the estranged younger sister of George Clooney’s Danny Ocean from the Ocean’s Eleven films, who assembles a team of talented thieves to pull off a heist at the annual Met Gala. But the twist: there’s not a man in sight, except for the ones who are probably there to shine the women’s shoes (I’m kidding, men are great).

Ocean's Eight cameo

17 years after Steven Soderbergh gave us one of the most charismatic casts to grace the screen in the 21st century with Ocean’s 11, we’ll see a new team of thieves form in Ocean’s Eight. Director Gary Ross put together a hell of a crew, too, with Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Anne Hathaway, Sarah Paulson, Mindy Kaling, Awkwafina, Rihanna, and Helena Bonham Carter. One member of Danny Ocean’s gang will appear with them in the film, and now another actor from Soderbergh’s trilogy is now confirmed to join in on the fun.

It’s a cameo, so it’s a spoiler, but if you want to know who else is making an Ocean’s Eight cameo, find out below.

Ocean's 8 (header)

One of New York’s interesting little quirks is that just about everyone takes the train. Even, apparently, criminal masterminds on their way to stage a multimillion-dollar heist at one of the glitziest events of the year. At least that’s my takeaway from our first look at Ocean’s 8, which puts Debbie Ocean (Sandra Bullock) and her crew (including characters played by Cate BlanchettSarah Paulson, and Anne Hathaway) on an MTA subway car.

Ocean's Eight Cast

Over the past couple months, the cast of the Ocean’s Eleven spin-off Ocean’s Eight has slowly been filling out.

Since then, the cast has added Cate Blanchett, Helena Bonham Carter and Mindy Kaling, but now three more names have just been added to the roster. Read More »

Alice Through the Looking Glass TV Spot

Last night, ABC aired The Wonderful World of Disney: Disneyland 60. The two-hour special was a star-studded celebration of Disney’s storied past, from Mickey Mouse to Beauty and the Beast to Star Wars: The Force Awakens… but the studio also took the chance to look forward at some of its upcoming offerings. In addition to new concept art for Star Wars Land, the studio also served up new footage from its three live-action fairy tales due out this year: Pete’s DragonThe Jungle Book, and Alice Through the Looking Glass.

Mia Wasikowska returns for that last one as Alice, who get caught up in a race against Time — literally, since Time turns out to be a man played by Sacha Baron Cohen. The Alice in Wonderland sequel also features the returns of Johnny Depp as the Mad Hatter, Anne Hathaway as the White Queen, Helena Bonham Carter as the Red Queen, and the voice of Alan Rickman as the Blue Caterpillar, in what has turned out to be his final film. Watch the latest Alice Through the Looking Glass TV spot below.  Read More »

Alice Through the Looking Glass

Just last week, the first teaser trailer for Alice Through the Looking Glass arrived, the sequel to Tim Burton’s 2010 adaptation of Alice in Wonderland. It’s quite an early tease for the film that won’t arrive until next summer, and now a batch of posters featuring some of the prominent Wonderland characters and one new face have surfaced.

Mia Wasikowska, Johnny Depp, Anne Hathaway and Helena Bonham Carter all get their own posters, reprising their characters from the first film. In addition, Sacha Baron Cohen, who plays a part-human, part-clock manifestation of Time gets his own poster as well, with all of the character surrounded by trippy, melting clocks. Read More »
