Despite the star power of the female led movie, Ocean’s Eight faces an uphill battle at the box office. With a June 8 release date, it will be placed in the Summer 2018 blockbuster box office season against some stiff competition. The original trilogy saw diminishing returns, with the 2001 original as the highest domestically and internationally. The last movie to get the reboot with a female-led cast was 2016’s Ghostbusters, which was a box office disappointment factored against its enormous budget. It’s possible that Ocean’s Eight will be tenable but hopefully has a budget that will position it to be successful.
