Girls just wanna have all kinds of larcenous fun in "Ocean's 8," the all-female spinoff of the clever heist franchise started by Frank Sinatra in 1960 and rejuvenated by George Clooney's trilogy at the turn of the 21st century.

The official trailer for the action comedy, due in theaters June 8, showcases Sandra Bullock as Debbie Ocean, the estranged sister of Danny Ocean, the classy thief played by Sinatra and Clooney. Bullock recruits seven gal pals to rob the annual star-studded, diamond-heavy Met Gala in New York: Cate Blanchett, Helena Bonham Carter, Anne Hathaway, Mindy Kaling, Sandra Paulson, Rihanna and Awkwafina.

Bullock's scheme took exactly "five years, eight months and 12 days" to develop, the length of her most recent prison stint.

The potential payoff: $16.5 million—each.

Box office not included.
