'Ocean's 8' steals weekend box office with $41.5 million

'Ocean's 8' steals weekend box office with $41.5 million

Now look, I'm not suggesting that Ocean's 8 is almost as putrid as American Pie Presents: Band Camp- it's an absolutely good-enough piece of summer fluff, and it's probably some sort of blasphemy to invoke a title like that anywhere near the vicinity of a cast like this. With hefty production costs and expensive marketing, the remake cost Sony around $50 million. It was expected to take in $45 million, Box Office Mojo estimated. After a stint in prison, she puts together an unstoppable team of crooks. Ocean's 8 brought in $15.9 million on its opening day topping the George Clooney-led Ocean's Twelve, which earned $14.7 million.

The movie received mostly positive reviews from critics with a 67 percent on Rotten Tomatoes, and got a B+ CinemaScore. But Rihanna, along with Mindy Kaling, who plays a jewelry expert, are vastly underused, as is Awkwafina as a world-class pickpocket.

They're eight women, poised to take over from the men for an "Ocean's" reboot full of glitz and glamor - a particularly #MeToo affair that does away with the saga's traditional masculinity.

"What Hollywood seems to be focusing on are franchises", Sweeney said.

Bullock did not get into specifics about the sexist behaviour she was subjected to, though she said it's had a lasting effect. "The actors had an incredible chemistry together".

According to ComScore, overall box office is up 4.3 percent year-to-date. Hereditary surged past A24's previous highest opener, The Witch, by over 40% and will continue to roll out to markets around the world next week. After her mother dies, the Graham family starts to discover cryptic and terrifying secrets about their ancestry. Drew Pearce wrote and directed the movie, which stars Jodie Foster as a nurse running a secret hospital for criminals in near-future Los Angeles. Unfortunately, Global Road's Hotel Artemis, the weekend's third new wide release, struggled to find an opening weekend audience while Universal and Amblin Entertainment launched Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom internationally this weekend where it grossed over $150 million, two weeks ahead of its North American release. The cast also includes Sterling K. Brown, Sofia Boutella, and Brian Tyree Henry.
