Sony Pictures’ Bullet Train is coming for everyone and it look absolutely amazing! A new trailer was released today for the film and it looks like it’s going to be one of the biggest hits of the summer. Bullet Train is directed by David Leitch, who directed Deadpool 2 and Fast and Furious Presents: Hobbs and Shaw, is based on the book by Kotaro Isaka, and features an absolutely superstar cast that includes Brad Pitt, Brian Tyree Henry, Andrew Koji, Hiroyuki Sanada, Bad Bunny, Sandra Bullock and more.
The cast alone is enough to draw audiences, but Leitch’s now trademark irreverent style mixed with some impressive stylized action really pops in this new trailer. The trailer starts with some friendly banter between Brad PItt and Sandra Bullock, and the two clearly have some incredible chemistry (it’s probably not too hard to have great chemistry with either Pitt or Bullock). We get to see more of Brian Tyree Henry’s villainous character, some Bad Bunny and a bit of Andrew Koji and Hiroyuki Sanada (though not nearly enough of either). Again, this cast is completely stacked!
Bullet Train premieres in theaters August 5th and I’ll definitely be along for the wild ride!
In Bullet Train, Brad Pitt stars as Ladybug, an unlucky assassin determined to do his job peacefully after one too many gigs gone off the rails. Fate, however, may have other plans, as Ladybug’s latest mission puts him on a collision course with lethal adversaries from around the globe – all with connected, yet conflicting, objectives – on the world’s fastest train…and he’s got to figure out how to get off. From the director of Deadpool 2, David Leitch, the end of the line is only the beginning in a wild, non-stop thrill ride through modern-day Japan.
