Here’s ‘Ocean’s 8’ by the numbers, including the all-star cast of Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett and Rihanna; its reported budget; the celebrity cameos and more.
This female heist film stole the box office this weekend.
“Ocean’s 8” debuted with a $41.5 million haul — more than the $36 million to $39 million that the three previous, male-fronted “Ocean’s” films starring George Clooney, Brad Pitt and Matt Damon made during their opening weekends, without adjusting for inflation. (With that adjustment, the first three movies made $48 million to $61 million.)
You can’t pull off a successful caper without focusing on the numbers involved, however, so Moneyish took a look at some other facts and figures behind the weekend’s No. 1 movie.
$150 million: Estimates on what the movie cost to make (including extensive reshoots) and market worldwide, according to The New York Times. It’s so far made back $41.5 million in 4,145 locations during its first weekend. Its global intake has hit $53.7 million, thanks to another $12.2 million in sales overseas.
