Warner Bros. released the official trailer for Ocean’s 8 starring Rihanna, Mindy Kaling, Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Anne Hathaway, Sarah Paulson, Awkwafina, and Helena Bonham Carter. The film received early criticism for being the first all female Oceans film of the hugely successful Oceans franchise, but from the looks of it, this film will give the Oceans fans exactly what they need.
Rihanna who plays Nine Ball, and Mindy Kaling who plays Amita are the only two women of colour starring in the film, and they are representing Women of Colour proudly! Rihanna sports faux locs while Mindy’s character brings India heritage to the big screen. Even though people of colour are consistently underrepresented in major films, there’s hope for Ocean’s 8. Hopefully the background actors, extras, and co-stars are diverse, as the films nature calls for it. Either way, we’re ready to see Rihanna and Mindy in their #MelaninRealness
