It’s Time to Take the Ride with the Official Trailer for David Leitch’s Assassin Filled Actioner BULLET TRAIN!

By: John M Jerva

It was teased last week and now we have our first official look at David Leitch’s latest blood bath of an action movie with the debut of the trailer for Bullet Train. Filled with enough carnage, CQB choreographed brutality, bullet riddled set pieces and dark comedy to satisfy genre fans, this one looks like a quirky good time with Brad Pitt leading the charge of a new high speed train that is filled with 13 of the world’s most dangerous assassins looking for one very important item. Check out the 87Eleven mayhem below!

The David Leitch helmed actioner follows Pitt’s Ladybug, Joey King’s Prince, Andrew Koji’s Kimura, Aaron Taylor-Johnson’s Tangerine, Brian Tyree Henry’s Lemon, and Zazie Beetz’s Hornet, five assassins who venture abroad the titular Japanese locomotive. They’re in pursuit of various targets and as they begin their work, the five assassins come to learn that their assignments are interconnected and they have to figure out a way to survive the trip.

Getting back on the job is never as easy as you think… especially with the world’s deadliest assassins on board. Take a ride with Brad Pitt in Bullet Train, exclusively in movie theaters July 15.

Sony’s Bullet Train will hit theaters on July 15th after being bumped from its initial April 18th date which now belongs to Sony’s other action flick Ambulance starring Jake Gyllenhaal. The film is centered on a group of assassins who converge on a train to Tokyo. The shit hits the fan of course as the rogue’s gallery all have different and conflicting reasons as to why they are on the train. The body count will then start to rise in spectacular fashion.

According to the film’s stunt coordinator, Greg Rementer, Pitt was responsible for performing over 95% of his stunts for the high-octane action sequences. It looks like Pitt took a page from Keanu Reeves’ preparedness for John Wick and went all in for this film.

The mixture of East meets West in terms of action aesthetic is most welcome and the stunt team here is more than qualified to handle the mixture. The blending of styles has always been a Yin/Yang of hit or miss but this one looks to take advantage of the talent involved.

Joining Pitt is a robust cast that features Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Andrew Koji, Joey King, Brian Tyree Henry, Michael Shannon, Hiroyuki Sanada, Benito A. Martinez Ocasio, and Sandra Bullock. An impressive ensemble indeed and one that just might bring audiences out to see it.

Leitch also produced via his 87North production banner along with Kelly McCormick as well as Antoine Fuqua (The Magnificent SevenTraining DayThe Equalizer) and Kat Samick (The EqualizerSouthpawInfinite). Zak Olkewicz (Fear Street) penned the screenplay.

With Leitch at the helm and 87Eleven developing the action set pieces, this one remains high on my list for must sees in 2022.
