The makers of Ocean's 8 have yet to comment, however, on whether their decision to can Damon's cameo was inspired by both his comments and the subsequent backlash they received.

In 2007, Ocean's Thirteen debuted with $36.1 million at the box office, in 2004 its predecessor Ocean's Twelve opened up with $39.2 million and in 2001 the first in the series Ocean's Eleven laid claim to $38.1 million in its opening weekend.

The film's director, Gary Ross, explained why veteran Ocean's actor, Matt Damon, wasn't featured in the film despite cameos from other actors who starred in previous Ocean's films being part of the new movie. "[Picking the cameos] is an eclectic process of: how does it fit in the story and how is the narrative unfolding?" Reiner revealed a year ago that he had filmed a scene with Sandra Bullock, while Damon announced he would also be making a brief appearance. "This more than any movie I've done had a really copious editorial process where you play with stuff, you find stuff". "Damon's inclusion [in the film] would trivialize the serious nature of the charges against sexual abusers like Weinstein-[and] show massive disrespect for the fearless women speaking out", the petition read in part.

The all-female heist movie was released on Friday, but viewers will note that Damon's cameo landed a spot on the cutting room floor instead of on the big screen.

Though Ross stated the cut was not a result of the backlash, people who vehemently opposed Damon's presence in the film won after all. We ended up shooting probably another 10 days afterwards, so there's a lot of material and a lot of shaping. "It really just comes to storytelling".

Early in Ocean's 8, former casino owner Reuben Tishkoff (Elliot Gould) shows up and warns Debbie Ocean (Sandra Bullock) not to go through with her planned robbery.
