'Ocean's 8' is No. 1 at the Box Office

Sandra Bullock says she nearly left Hollywood because of sexism

Ocean's 8, which shifts the formula by featuring an all-female cast including Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett and Rihanna, is expected to unseat Solo: A Star Wars Story at the top of the box office.

"We exceeded our expectations", Goldstein said. "These actors did a tremendous job telling a fun story going after a very specific demographic, females, an audience that is often underserved".

Deadline reports Ocean's 8 is expected to have a record opening for the franchise as it's slated to bring in $42 million. Her first stop is to assemble the flawless crew: Lou (Cate Blanchett), Nine Ball (Rihanna), Amita (Mindy Kaling), Constance (Awkwafina), Rose (Helena Bonham Carter), Daphne Kluger (Anne Hathaway), and Tammy (Sarah Paulson).

"The first conversation she and I had was about leaning into her Caribbean roots", said Ross.

Solo: A Star Wars Story secured second place with US$15.2 million in its third weekend.

This weekend's well reviewed horror release Hereditary took fourth place with $13 million.

The swell of curiosity that A24 managed to drum up for Hereditary worked brilliantly in their favor, delivering the frightening film to a #4 opening with $13 million. This reaction may have contributed to the depressing D+ Cinemascore the film received from polled audience members. Written and directed by Ari Aster the film stars Toni Collette, Alex Wolff, Milly Shapiro, Ann Dowd and Gabriel Byrne. The film stars Jodie Foster as a nurse who runs a hospital for criminals in a futuristic version of Los Angeles. Audiences seem to disagree - the horror film now has a D+ CinemaScore and 64% audience score on Rotten Tomatoes, while its critical rating is 94% Fresh. The documentary on the life and legacy of "Mister Rogers' Neighborhood" host Fred Rogers stirred up social media buzz, sharing how the film spurred them to tears, and it has a 99% Fresh on Rotten Tomatoes.

67%: Its current Rotten Tomatoes score, along with a B+ CinemaScore.

One of the early summer's more breakout hits has been the Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg documentary "RBG", which has made $9.1 million in six weeks of release through Sunday. 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 latest in Universal's "Jurassic Park" franchise opened in first place in 48 worldwide markets with $151.1 million.
