Sony Pictures has released the official trailer for Bullet Train, the new action-thriller starring Brad Pitt and opening in theaters on August 5, 2022. You can watch the trailer using the player below!
Sony describes the movie as a “a fun, delirious action-thriller from the director of ‘Deadpool 2’, David Leitch.”
Brad Pitt headlines an ensemble cast of eclectic, diverse assassins — all with connected yet conflicting objectives – set against the backdrop of a non-stop ride through modern-day Japan.
The cast includes Joey King, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Brian Tyree Henry, Andrew Koji, Hiroyuki Sanada, Michael Shannon, and Benito A Martínez Ocasio.
David Leitch directed the movie from a script by Zak Olkewicz. The producers include Kelly McCormick, David Leitch, and Antoine Fuqua.
The film is based on the novel by Kotaro Isaka (check price at Amazon). The book is officially described as follows:
“Satoshi — The Prince — looks like an innocent schoolboy but is really a stylish and devious assassin. Risk fuels him, as does a good philosophical debate, such as questioning: Is killing really wrong?
“Kimura’s young son is in a coma thanks to The Prince, and Kimura has tracked him onto a bullet train heading from Tokyo to Morioka to exact his revenge. But Kimura soon discovers that they are not the only dangerous passengers on board.
“Nanao, also nicknamed Ladybug, the self-proclaimed ‘unluckiest assassin in the world,’ is put on the bullet train by his boss, a mysterious young woman called Maria, to steal a suitcase full of money and get off at the first stop.
“The lethal duo of Tangerine and Lemon are also traveling to Morioka, and the suitcase leads others to show their hands. Why are they all on the same train, and who will make it off alive?
“A bestseller in Japan, Bullet Train is an original and propulsive thriller that fizzes with incredible energy as its complex net of double-crosses and twists unwinds up to the last station.”
