Sony Pictures Bullet Train is arriving in theaters on July 15.
If you’re in SoCal, the weather might have you confused about what season it is, but regardless, things are starting to heat up and the summer blockbusters are coming. Sony Pictures is looking to continue with their string of hits with Bullet Train. Bullet Train features an all-star cast lead by Brad Pitt. Pitt plays Ladybug, an assassin coming out of retirement for a job. Turns out he’s one of five assassins and all of their jobs overlap on a non-stop bullet train in Japan.
Bullet Train Official Trailer
The trailer for Bullet Train is beautiful. The film looks to be making excellent use of color and lights to highlight and accentuate the mood and tone of scenes. The action scenes also look to seamlessly blend action and comedy, something we know David Leitch has mastered after Deadpool 2. I also saw a mascot get punched, which I don’t know why, but makes me giggle uncontrollably. There also seems to be a bunch of different weapons, which guarantees awesome close-quarter combat scenes. But the mascot thing is was completely sold me.
Actually, I was sold by the quiet room fight. The fact that Pitt and Brian Tyree Henry are adhering to the rules of the quiet car while they try to kill each other is brilliant. It’s hard for me to imagine any conflict without noise, let alone a life and death one. The film looks to have all the makings of a truly great action and comedy movie. When Pitt throws the water bottle at Aaron Tyler-Johnson, it’s hilarious and cool. If the trailer wasn’t enough, check out the screenshots.
