Gender Joy: Ocean’s 8 Bests the Male Franchise at Opening.

In Variety  Ocean’s 8 opening box office ( domestic) exceeds every other opening in the Ocean’s franchise. It beat 2 Ocean’s 11, Ocean’s 12 and Ocean’s 13. This just illuminates what many of us believe – who needs 11, 12 or 13 hot or famous men when you can do more with just 8 talented females — and Richard Armitage?

Excerpt:

“Ocean’s 8” is dominating domestic moviegoing as the heist comedy heads for a solid opening weekend of about $44 million at 4,145 sites, early estimates showed on Friday.

Warner Bros.’ gender-swapped reboot of the “Ocean’s” franchise was performing above forecasts as it grabbed an impressive $4 million from Thursday night previews, part of a Friday total of about $17 million. Recent predictions had placed “Ocean’s 8” between $33 million and $40 million.
