This female-dominated spin-off of The Ocean’s Trilogy sees Danny Ocean’s estranged sister Debbie (Sandra Bullock) attempt to pull off the ultimate heist at New York City’s star-studded annual Met Gala – by prizing an invaluable necklace from Anne Hathaway’s elite celebrity. But she must assemble the perfect crew to undertake the near-impossible theft – which includes the likes of Oscar winner Cate Blanchett (Aviator), Helen Bonham Carter (The Harry Potter Series), Mindy Kaling (A Wrinkle in Time) and pop songstress Rihanna (Battleship). The Hunger Games director Gary Ross helms this action-comedy-crime caper, which undoubtedly intends to add two more sequels to take us right up to Ocean’s Eleven, with Nine and Ten . . .

This ‘crowd-funded’ sequel to anarchic cult comedy Super Troopers has now brought its zany brand of humour to this side of the pond. Jay Chandrasekhar is back to write and direct this follow-up to the 2001 original – which stars Seann William Scott (American Pie) in which the troopers are tasked with establishing a new Highway Patrol station after a border dispute between US and Canada.
