Sandra Bullock on Bonding with All-Female 'Ocean's 8' Cast

Sandra Bullock on Bonding with All-Female 'Ocean's 8' Cast

"My career has been a domino effect of people who said, 'I would like this person to fill this role, '" the Ocean's 8 star said.

"The 31-years old was reported to have made a cameo appearance in Ocean's 8" movie but her latest tweet suggests that she was not sure the scene would make it to the film.

Jeff Goldstein, head of domestic distribution at Warner Bros, thanks counter-programming against a series of tentpoles for the film's strong debut. "Number one, it's fun". "We hit an underserved audience", he said.

"It just was this huge, huge love fest, which is great, cause there's this bad rumour out there that women can't get along".

Yet the weekend's three new wide releases were all female fronted.

Creeping up in fourth place was A24's familial horror film Hereditary which brought in $13 million and has set a record for the highest opening weekend for the independent distributor.

Far less successful was Global Road's "Hotel Artemis". Sterling K. Brown, Sofia Boutella, Jeff Goldblum, Charlie Day, Dave Bautista, Kenneth Choi, Brian Tyree Henry, Jenny Slate, and Zachary Quinto star in the film, which was written and directed by Iron Man 3's Drew Pearce. Set in a near-future Los Angeles, "Hotel Artemis" is about a members-only hospital for criminals. 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. But some of the story was still the same.

Overall, the year to date box office is ahead 4.3 per cent, according to comScore. The documentary on the life and legacy of Mister Rogers' Neighborhood host Fred Rogers stirred up positive social media buzz, with audiences sharing how the film spurred them to tears. Also opening in limited release this weekend was Focus' Won't You Be My Neighbor? Hereditary received a dismal D-plus CinemaScore, but critics gave it glowing reviews. The Star Wars Story now sits at $176.1 million domestically and has a worldwide total of $312.2 million. While it fell just under the projected $44 million it was slated to rake up, it was still enough for the film to land a No. 1 spot over all other films in theaters. And then "Jurassic World 2" will probably take the crown for its North American debut on June 22, but it may still be a close race between supes and dinos.
