Check out the rising sis-stars of cinema and comedy that you need to know about
Sky Cinema Queens Of Comedy, available from Monday 18 June in Sky Cinema on demand and on Sky Cinema Comedy/HD (CH 438/408)
By now, you’re well acquainted with Kristen Wiig and more than familiar with Melissa McCarthy. Isn’t it about time you got to know a few more of the funniest females on screen? And we’re not just talking about on the TV. Monday 18 June sees the cinema release of the highly anticipated Ocean’s 8, starring Sandra Bullock (Gravity) and Cate Blanchett (Thor: Ragnarok) as the leaders of a crack team of con artists.
And it’s overflowing with big names – including Anne Hathaway, Mindy Kaling, Sarah Paulson, Rihanna, Helena Bonham Carter and Awkwafina (more on her later). Yes, the women are well and truly taking over in this historically male franchise, and they are giving it more of a comedic twist.
