THE GAME THAT
BRINGS US TOGETHER
A SHORT HISTORY
The FIFA World Cup was first held in 1930, when FIFA president Jules Rimet
decided to stage an international football tournament. The inaugural edition,
held in 1930, was contested as a final tournament of only thirteen teams invited
by the organization. Since then, the World Cup has experienced successive
expansions and format remodeling to its current 32-team final tournament,
preceded by a two-year qualifying process, involving over 200 teams from
around the world.
The last World Cup was held in Brazil, marking the second time that Brazil
hosted the competition. The cup was won by Germany, who beat Argentina 1–0
in the final. 2014 was the first time that three consecutive tournaments saw
the winning side come from the same continent (Europe: 2006 Italy, 2010
Spain, 2014 Germany).

World Cup tidbits
The World Cup is organised by FIFA every 4 years. Over the span of a month, 32 national teams compete in 64
matches to win the claim and title of the best football team in the world. It is one of the greatest sporting
events in existence. Its status and global presence creates a competition wrought with endless stress and
excitement for both the players and fans. For the month of the iconic event, headlines are dominated by World
Cup stories and countless related records and statistics.
Almost 3.2 billion people worldwide, roughly 46% of To put things into perspective, let's compare
the world’s population, watched more than one minute viewership of the 2014 Super Bowl to the final match
of the 2010 World Cup. According to FIFA, this makes of the 2010 World Cup. The Seahawks' win over the

While it is amazing that 46% of the world united to I realise that as the Super Bowl is a predominantly US

that 2 billion people, or about 29% of the world, sat this is somewhat comparing apples to oranges. Even
down to watch more than 30 minutes of the Cup. still, the fact that almost a billion people watched a
single football match is mind blowing.

One of the most interesting World Cup facts is how Contrary to how it may seem, and opposite to other
much money FIFA pays the tournament's participants. global events like the Olympics, the World Cup stadiums
are usually widely spread across the host country.
In addition to bragging rights, the winner of the World
Cup takes home a staggering $35 million USD. As an example, the twelve stadiums of the 2018 World
Cup are spread as far as 1800 miles apart; from the
coast of the Baltic sea to the base of the Ural
In a small attempt to offset their disappointment, FIFA
awards the runner-up $25 million USD.

8 Things that we anticipate..

1 This reboot of a reboot is one reboot we can
get on board with
It's not unfair to say Hollywood loves taking an idea and milking
it until the audience has overdosed on calcium. The original
Ocean's Eleven was released in 1960 and starred Frank Sinatra,
Dean Martin and Sammy Davis Jr. It was then remade in 2001
with George Clooney, Brad Pitt and Matt Damon, a version
which prompted two further sequels. So, to sum up, Ocean's 8
is a sequel to a trilogy which itself was made up of a remake
and two sequels.
God knows how complicated this is all going to get if they
make any more.
2 Sandra Bullock's past has come back to haunt her
Sandra Bullock, as Debbie Ocean, takes on the central role as the ringleader of the
dramatic heist we're all about to witness. In a nod to the opening scene of 2001's
Ocean's Eleven, the trailer starts with Bullock in prison, apologising for her previous
crimes and hopeful that she's about to be granted parole. The trailer doesn't make clear
what she was serving time for, but there's a good chance it's connected to a speeding
incident in 1994 where she caused chaos on the streets of LA while driving a city bus.
3 The heist crew is essentially made up of the
same characters as before
Except this time they have new names and longer hair. There's
Cate Blanchett, who takes on the role of Bullock's sidekick -
she's the Brad Pitt to Sandra Bullock's George Clooney. There's
Awkwafina, who plays a gifted street pick-pocket; Mindy Kaling,
who plays a jewellery expert (wonder whether that will come in
handy); Rihanna, who plays a computer hacker; and Sarah
Paulson as a suburban mother who's left her life of crime behind
and needs some real persuading to come back. Helena Bonham
Carter plays a stylist who sports some truly magnificent
headgear, and Anne Hathaway also turns up as Daphne Kluger, a
woman who enjoys wearing necklaces worth $150m - thus giving
our team their target.

4 Danny Ocean himself is unlikely to
make a cameo appearance
Because he's dead. Or at least, if he isn't, they've done an
extremely good job of throwing everybody off the scent by
having Sandra visit her estranged brother's tombstone in the
trailer. His year of death is listed as 2018, so maybe the cause
was death by dangerous time travelling. Bear in mind that
Clooney is producing this project, so don't rule out seeing Danny
appear as part of a flashback or something.
5 James Corden is in it, because of course he is
Isn't it nice he's finally getting some exposure.
6 The trailer doesn't give much away about Rihanna's acting ability
It's not always a good sign when a cast member has the word "with" before their name
in a trailer. This can often be clever way of lowering the audience's expectations about
a star's level of involvement with the film. Rihanna's image has had an overhaul - she's
seen as a grungy computer whizz but her brief appearance in the trailer doesn't give
much else away, and her dialogue is kept to a minimum.
7 But she's certainly bringing peak levels of
sass to the movie
"What's your name?" asks Sandra.
"Nine-ball," replies the S&M hitmaker.
"What's your real name?" Sandra persists.
This could either be a cheeky and audacious reply or an
indication that her character is going to be so-named because
she has all the answers. We're kinda hoping for both.
T O L U N A M A G A Z I N E | 1 3
8 They've held back some of the surprises
Kim Kardashian, Kendall Jenner, Zayn Malik, Serena Williams,
and Anna Wintour are all rumoured to make cameo
appearances in Ocean's 8, but the trailer gives nothing away
about their roles.
(However, given that the whole thing is supposed to be set at
the Met Ball, it wouldn't be difficult to squeeze in a couple of
celebrities in the background.)
They also haven't even hinted at a romantic storyline of any
form - which is a massive achievement for a film with an all-
female principal cast - but there could well be sub-storyline
of some kind involving a love interest, because, you know,
