Brad Pitt, Aaron Taylor Johnson, Sandra Bullock, Joey King, Logan Lerman, Zazie Beats, Michael Shannon, Brian Tyree Henry, Hiroyuki Sonada, and Andrew Koji stand among the recognizable faces of a tight action thrill ride aboard the titular bullet train.
Pitt, in particular, plays a bit more outside of the sort of character he’s played through the last decade or so, with more energy and vigor. tonally, and aesthetically, I think this favors spectacle over direction to make the viewer feel “gripped” by what’s happening. But it looks like a promising shot of entertainment regardless.
Directed by David Leitch, written by Zak Olkewicz, and produced by Antoine Fuqua, David Leitch, and Kelly McCormick, Sony Pictures will release this in theaters July 15th, 2022.
