The first trailer for Ocean’s 8, the all-female spinoff of the Ocean’s 11 franchise, is here and these women have set their eyes on the jewel of all heists.

Sandra Bullock and Cate Blanchett are the masterminds behind the plan to steal a $150 million—not $100 million as they initially believe—necklace from Daphne Kluger (Anne Hathaway) at the annual Met Gala.

Though they don’t need as many people as Danny Ocean did for his first feature heist, they’re assembling their own super team of cons, liars, and thieves to pull it off. Mindy Kaling’s character can make jewelry, Rihanna is the hacker, Helena Bonham Carter is the fashion designer, Awkwafina is the thief, and Sarah Paulson is getting pulled back in after swearing it off completely. (And for some reason James Corden is randomly thrown into the mix of this trailer.)

With a team up like this, how could they fail?

Ocean’s 8 will be released in theaters June 8, 2018.
