Running Time: 110 minutes

Just last year, the Ocean’s 11 series got a countrified redo from director Steven Soderbergh with Logan Lucky. Less than a year later, we’ve received another variation on the formula called Ocean’s 8. This time out, the story is based around a heist perpetrated...

Running Time: 95 minutes

It’s tough competing with the big studios, who have far more money and production services at their disposal.
