If your movie stars Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Helena Bonham Carter, Rihanna, and Anne Hathaway, your movie needs no help in the star power department. Nonetheless, the awesome-sounding Ocean’s 8, a female-centric spinoff of the Ocean’s Eleven franchise, will feature at least a couple of cameos from the old series’ crew.
