Rihanna's Criminally Flawless Look Stole the Show at the Ocean's 8 Premiere

Sandra Bullock says she nearly left Hollywood because of sexism

Sandra Bullock Calls Out 'Ghostbusters' Reboot Backlash As Being Unfair

Indeed, the reboot about skilled thieves looking good while committing their thievery just scored a franchise-best for the series, as Ocean's 8 is estimated of opening at $41.5 million this weekend. "You make your own money, and be your own person.' And I literally went out into the world thinking there was no disparity, that everyone was equal, and I can do whatever a man can do".

Sandra Bullock as Debbie Ocean and Cate Blanchett as Lou in Warner Bros.

Not all weekend openers were as fortunate.

Ocean's 8 is Sandra Bullock's first movie in nearly three years.

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

Finishing in a distant second was Disney's Solo: A Star Wars Story, earning $15.15 million to bring its total North American gross to $176 million after 1 days, well below the expectations for a film in the biggest franchise in the universe. 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.

Meanwhile, "Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom" is already devouring prey at the worldwide box office, which is a good way to get itself early headlines. Internationally, the Han Solo origin story brought in an additional $11.3 million.

"Deadpool 2" edged out new horror-thriller "Hereditary", but barely.

Marvel Studios' Avengers: Infinity War brought in an additional $6.8 million domestically, putting its U.S. total at $654.7 million (still sitting behind Black Panther by $45 million).

The gender switch from Clooney & Co.to Bullock and crew didn't seem to cause the mass outrage among a segment of male fandom that haunted the Ghostbusters reboot two years ago.

Well, fair enough. I don't blame Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon or Leslie Jones for Ghostbusters sucking. It was a disappointing return for a movie that had a production budget of $144 million. Also opening in limited release this weekend was Focus' Won't You Be My Neighbor?

Opening this weekend was another documentary that may prove a similar sensation: the Fred Rogers documentary "Won't You Be My Neighbor". The film was panned by audiences receiving a 52% audience score on Rotten Tomatoes.

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