(This is, after all, the series in which Julia Roberts once played both her character and herself.) She has a tiny moment of ecstasy, when first trying on the necklace at the heist's center, that's so simultaneously amusing and sexy, you'll wish she'd been born early enough to do a couple dozen screwball comedies.

The film also stars Cate Blanchett, Anne Hathaway, Mindy Kaling, Sarah Paulson, Awkwafina, Rihanna, and Helena Bonham Carter.

At Tuesday's premiere of "Ocean's 8", Sandra Bullock addressed backlash surrounding 2016's "Ghostbusters", another high-profile all-female reboot starring Kate McKinnon, Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig and Leslie Jones.

That's the best opening ever for the "Ocean's Eleven" franchise.

When it additionally opens the summer after the #MeToo movement, as opposed to the summer before Harvey Weinstein's outing as a monster and "locker room talk" politics, Ocean's 8 was able to rise above erroneous critiques and be its own successful thing.

Following the revival of the ghostly classic, many took to social media to criticize the decision to cast all female actors to replace original male cast members like Dan Akroyd and Bill Murray. Females accounted for 69% of audiences, while 69% were over the age of 25.

Other notable attendees include Kim Kardashian , Ariana Grande , Courtney Love, Zane Lowe, and more. Another Friday, another GOOD Music album.

Ocean's 8 picks up right where possibly late Danny Ocean (George Clooney) left. The film, 99 percent fresh on Rotten Tomatoes, has been acclaimed for its portrait of the man behind "Mister Rogers' Neighborhood". That movie went on to earn $362.7 million worldwide.

Not doing so well was Hotel Artemis, which had a disappointing $3.1 million debut. 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.

Disney and Lucasfilm's Solo: A Star Wars Story is vying for the second place.

The Globe's top picks for what to see and do each weekend, in Boston and beyond. Ryan Reynold's antihero film has pocketed $278.9 million in North America and $376 million internationally, including an $18 million overseas haul this weekend. Ghostbusters had an at least $144 million budget after alleged tax incentives, as well as a large marketing budget. The Focus Features release grossed $470,000 in 29 theaters for a per-theater average of about $16,000.

Overall, the year to date box office is ahead 4.3%, according to comScore.
