I’m a little late with this one as Sony Pictures ushered in new key art for director David Leitch’s all-star assassin action-comedy Bullet Train yesterday. Better late than never I always say so below you’ll find the much better one sheet issued for the full-throttle action pic which stars Brad Pitt as assassin cleverly named Ladybug as he must do some srious battle with six other guns for hire in Joey King’s Prince, Andrew Koji’s Kimura, Aaron Taylor-Johnson’s Tangerine, Brian Tyree Henry’s Lemon, and Zazie Beetz’s Hornet There’s only one way off this crazy train to hell in a handbasket so check out the roll call below courtesy of the movie’s Twitter page!
John Wick alum and 87Eleven action maestro David Leitch helms all the blood-soaked madness with a tinge of dark humor. Additional cast members also include Masi Oka, Michael Shannon, Logan Lerman, Hiroyuki Sanada, Karen Fukuhara, Bad Bunny, and Sandra Bullock. The script was penned by Zak Olkewicz based off of the novel “Maria Beetle” by Kōtarō Isaka.
Unfortunately, we have a longer wait as Sony switched the release date for Bullet Train with Michael Bay’s Ambulance. The latter opened in April which would have been the original launch date for this one but now it will see an August 5th release. This one is on my hot list to see so expect my official opinion to drop when the film does.
Keep it locked and loaded for more greatness to come from Bullet Train as we are your fast mover bogey for all things action in 2022 and beyond! Accept no substitute! In the meantime, watch the balls out full trailer one more time below!
