Warning: Extremely mild spoilers for Ocean's 8 below!

The cast for Ocean's 8 is chock-full of A-listers - Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Rihanna, Mindy Kaling, Sarah Paulson, Helena Bonham Carter, Anne Hathaway, and more - but there's one actor who is noticeably absent from the all-star lineup: George Clooney. Although the Suburbicon director originated the role of heist mastermind Danny Ocean in the initial trilogy - Ocean's Eleven, Ocean's Twelve, and Ocean's Thirteen - the character has been killed off in the new spinoff, which it hinted at in the movie's thrilling trailer.

The slick caper follows Danny's sister, Debbie Ocean (Sandra Bullock), as she devises a plan to pull off a jewelry heist at New York City's yearly Met Gala after being released from prison. With the help of her eclectic all-female crew, Debbie schemes to rob one celebrity (Hathaway) of her jaw-dropping $100-million necklace at some point throughout the event.

American Animals Review: A Fascinating True Crime Story

American Animals Review: A Fascinating True Crime Story
American Animals is a fascinating true crime story; made even more engaging by its brilliant format. The film intercuts the portrayal of an infamous heist with interviews from the actual people involved. We learn the motivations of the characters from two key perspectives, real time and hindsight. It is a meticulous and highly creative exploration into the vagaries of human nature. Acclaimed documentarian Bart Layton reaches greatness with his first narrative feature.

American Animals opens in 2003 Kentucky. Barry Keoghan stars as Spencer Reinhard, a disenchanted art student at Transylvania University. His middle-class, suburban life has left him hollow. He yearns for the passion and adventure that inspired the great artists. A chance tour of the school's library leads to a presentation of its rare book collection. The showcase piece, John Audubon's "Birds of America", is the most valuable book in the world.

Evan Peters co-stars as Warren Lipka, Spencer's best friend from high school.

Ocean's 8 Wins at the Box Office with $41.5 Million

Warner Bros.' Ocean's 8 had no trouble fending off the competition this weekend, debuting atop the box office with $41.5 million. The Ocean's Eleven spin-off had been projected to debut within the $40 million range in its first frame, and it managed to match those expectations with an impressive debut, ending the two-week winning streak of Disney/LucasFilm's Solo: A Star Wars Story, which dropped to a distant second place with $15.1 million. Ocean's Eight's reign may be a short one, with The Incredibles 2 arriving next weekend and Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom in the frame after that, but its debut is still impressive nonetheless.

The $41.5 million debut at the box office represents more than half of Ocean's 8's $70 million budget, and even though it only earned $12.2 million overseas for a global opening weekend tally of $53.7 million, it should have no trouble eclipsing its budget and making a solid profit. The

George Clooney Says Batman and Robin Had Biggest Impact on His Career

George Clooney Says Batman and Robin Had Biggest Impact on His Career
George Clooney has had himself one heck of a career, both as an actor and a filmmaker. He's turned in Oscar-winning performances and has done everything from fun horror movies to high stakes dramas and everything in between. So, out of everything in his illustrious portfolio, what movie is it that had the most influence over his career? The disastrous dumpster fire that is Batman and Robin.

During a recent interview, in honor of receiving an AFI Lifetime Achievement Award this week. George Clooney was asked a great many questions about his career. One of which specifically addressed the movie that had the biggest influence on his career. While it may be surprising to hear that he said Batman and Robin, his reasoning is pretty sound. Here's what he had to say about it.

Review: Ocean's 8, Thieves Like Us, Sorta

Upon its release in December 2001, Steven Soderbergh's Ocean's Eleven felt like a salve upon a troubled nation's open wounds. Coming on the heels of Soderbergh's dazzling dramatic duo of the previous year (Erin Brockovich and Traffic), his caper flick felt like a lark, a remake for a major Hollywood studio that was happy to indulge his stylistic whims and fancies. The ensemble cast, led by George Clooney and Brad Pitt, looked like they were having a good time, and that infected anyone lucky enough to see the movie in a theater with an appreciative audience. Soderbergh's casual grace and the charm of the cast carried the sequels, Ocean's Twelve (2004) and Ocean's Thirteen (2007), but the trilogy came to a good-natured conclusion and all...

Sandra Bullock Says She Considered Leaving Hollywood Over Sexism
Ocean’s 8” star Sandra Bullock said she considered quitting acting and leaving Hollywood altogether after facing sexist behavior.

“I was like, ‘Wow, maybe I need to step out of here. Maybe I need to do something else for a living,'” the actress told USA Today. “And that was in the middle of when I was getting work — I didn’t want to be a part of that world where there was that experience.”

This weekend, Bullock will star “Ocean’s 8,” the all-female reboot of “Ocean’s 11” and Bullock’s first starring role since 2015’s “Our Brand Is Crisis.” Early tracking has its opening weekend set at roughly $30 million.

Bullock told USA Today that in her early career, beginning with her breakout role in 1994’s “Speed,” she had little

'American Animals' Review: Who Likes Doc Hybrids About Dumb Criminals?
You'd call this heist film un-fucking-believable, except that American Animals really is rooted in fact – that is, whenever the British documentarian Bart Layton, in a mightily impressive narrative feature debut, doesn't mess around too much. "This is not based on a true story," reads a title card at the start ... before the words "not based on" slowly vanish from the screen.

It's 2004 in Lexington, Kentucky, when homeboys Spencer Reinhard (Barry Keoghan) and Warren Lipka (Evan Peters), students at local Transylvania University, decide to pull off a robbery. They don't need the money,

Is Solo Finished at the Box Office, or Can It Win One More Weekend?

While Disney's Solo: A Star Wars Story had no trouble coming away with a box office win over the Memorial Day holiday weekend, the movie made more headlines for how it failed to impress, underperforming with a three-day tally of $84.4 million and a four-day Memorial Day holiday weekend total of $103 million. The Star Wars spin-off had the extended holiday weekend all to itself in its debut, but this weekend it will face three newcomers, Stx Entertainment's Adrift, Paramount's comedy Action Point and Blumhouse Tilt's thriller Upgrade, neither of which will usurp Solo, or even Deadpool 2, most likely, for what could be a rather tame weekend. We're predicting Solo will come out on top with $39.7 million.

Solo: A Star Wars Story debuted in 4,381 theaters, the fifth-widest release of all time, behind The Dark Knight Rises, The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, Avengers: Infinity War and Despicable Me 3. It

Ocean's 8 Is on Track for a Great $45M Opening Weekend

Warner Bros. is getting ready to roll out its highly-anticipated female lead Ocean's 8, a spin-off of director Steven Soderbergh's Ocean's Eleven trilogy, and it seems this could be a sleeper hit of the summer. Early box office tracking has put Ocean's 8 between $30 million and $45 million for its opening weekend. While we'll have to wait about three weeks to see how it really fares in theaters, this high-profile spin-off has the advantage of debuting right in between some of this summer's biggest movies.

Ocean's 8 will be going up against Global Road's action-thriller Hotel Artemis and A24's thriller Hereditary, and while both of those movies will arrive in wide release, they likely won't get quite as wide a release as Ocean's 8, which will likely be somewhere between a 3,500 and 3,750 theater-count debut. The movie has an estimated production budget of $70 million, a modest figure that could mean

Predicting 2018's Biggest Summer Movies at the Box Office

For the past several years, decades even, the annual summer movie season kicks off on the first weekend in May, which is when many colleges and universities end their school years. The summer season typically lasts until the last weekend in August, with the Labor Day holiday weekend typically signifying the start of the fall movie season. This year, summer started a weekend earlier with the April 27 release of Marvel's highly-anticipated Avengers: Infinity War, so we decided to break down the entire summer movie season and try to predict the top 10 movies at the box office this season.

For the past four years, the summer movie season has kicked off with a Marvel Studios adventure. Avengers: Infinity War follows Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 from last year, Captain America: Civil War in 2016 and Avengers: Age of Ultron in 2015.

Review: Unsane, A Psychological Thriller of the Highest Order

Depending on your thoughts about Logan Lucky, it was possible to worry that Steven Soderbergh had hit a bit of a bump in the road last year, but fortunately the director of prized titles like Ocean's Eleven, Magic Mike and Erin Brockovich returns in fine form with Unsane. Starring The Crown's excellent Claire Foy as the most unusually named Sawyer Valentini, Unsane proves to be an utterly fascinating exploration of sanity that well and truly gets you asking questions. Also shot entirely on an iPhone, the restlessly creative Soderbergh definitely manages to push the boat out cinematically too. But whatever you do, do not let this movie's underbaked marketing efforts to dress this film up as an easy-selling horror disappoint you. Unsane isn't a horror at...
