Sony Pictures and Columbia Pictures Bullet Train have released a new film for Bullet Train, the clip features much more action and funny moments starring Brad Pitt. With the highly anticipated release of the upcoming action-comedy, Bullet Train, just a couple of months away, a new set of character posters from the film have been released, offering a fresh look at the film's cast and also featuring a colorful attractive.
In the Bullet Train, Pitt plays Ladybug, a hapless but talented assassin determined to finally do his job peacefully. But naturally, fate has other plans. His latest mission places him on the world's fastest bullet train in Japan, with a variety of deadly adversaries from around the world who all seem to have the same goal in mind.
The film stars Pitt, Halle Berry, Joey King, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Brian Tyree Henry, Andrew Koji, Hiroyuki Sanada, Michael Shannon, Benito A Martínez Ocasio, and Sandra Bullock.
Bullet Train is directed by David Leitch (Deadpool 2), from a screenplay by Zak Olkewicz, based on the book by Kotaro Isaka. The film is produced by Kelly McCormick, David Leitch and Antoine Fuqua. Executive producers include Brent O'Connor, Ryosuke Saegusa, Yuma Terada, and Kat Samick.
The first in a new series of character posters shows the main character Ladybug (Brad Pitt), a seasoned assassin holding a briefcase against a white background. Coinciding with the character's name, ladybugs are seen crawling all over the poster. The second character's poster shows the mascot, Momomon, against a dark blue background.
The next poster focuses on the killer, Lemon (Brian Tyree Henry), who was seen trying to quietly fight Ladybug in a comedic scene from the film's trailer. Keeping with the theme of the rest of the posters, the background features images of lemon branches, matching the character's name. Keeping with the fruit theme, Lemon's associate Tangerine (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) stands in a serious pose with tangerine trees behind him in his own solo poster.
Andrew Koji and Joey King, as Yuichi Kimura and The Prince, also appear in their own exciting set of posters, with graphics of fish behind Koji's character and crowns wrapping around King's purple background. Hornet (Zazie Beetz) has a yellow background with snakes on it and Hiroyuki Sanada, who plays the Elder, has a cane with a tiger background.
Logan Lerman appears on his own poster of him wearing large glasses on a light blue background with graphics of the same accessory. Bad Bunny also stars in his own poster of him as The Wolf. Matching the theme of his name, the character has a yellow background that features graphics of a wolf with some roses, a skull, and a knife. Finally, Michael Shannon appears as The White Death, with silver hair, a blue suit and a sword in his hand on a red background.
The new set of posters manage to showcase a unique aspect of each character. While the scope of some of his roles in the film remains unclear, all of the film's characters will get a chance to shine when Bullet Train opens exclusively in theaters on August 5.
We've seen trains full of zombies ('Train to Busan'), snakes ('Snakes on a Train') and even killer Christmas raccoons ('Killer Raccoons 2: Dark Christmas in the Dark'). We've taken on the Hogwarts Express at Platform, led a dystopian post-apocalyptic riot aboard Bong Joon-ho's 'Snowbreaker', and investigated a murder alongside the one and only Hercule Poirot on the Orient Express. And now we're going to get on the bullet train with 'Bullet Train', where Brad Pitt, Sandra Bullock and Bad Bunny, among others, will beat each other up in the silence car.
David Leitch, director of 'John Wick', 'Deadpool 2', 'Hobbs and Shaw' and 'Atomic', returns to lead a frenetic action movie that promises adrenaline and impossible choreography aboard a high-speed train.
Based on the 2010 novel 'Maria Beetle' by Kōtarō Isaka, 'Bullet Train' will place us on a high-speed train traveling from Tokyo to Morioka, boarded by a disheveled Brad Pitt with a mission: to retrieve a briefcase. The main problem is that on board you will find 5 contract killers who have the same objective.
David Leitch's direction promises unbridled action mixed with a tone of absurd comedy that is a trademark of the house, and the first previews show it.
Brad Pitt and Sandra Bullock lead the spectacular cast of talent that 'Bullet Train' has assembled, in what will be their second collaboration after appearing together in 'The Lost City'.
Pitt will be Ladybug and will be the protagonist who will have to face the 5 contract killers who will try to get in his way to get the coveted briefcase.
The rest of the cast includes Bad Bunny, star of the first clip that we could enjoy of the film, and a spectacular string of names like Joey King, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Zazie Beetz, Andrew Koji, Brian Tyree Henry, Michael Shannon, Logan Lerman , Sandra Bullock, Masi Oka, and Hiroyuki Sanada.
The trailer for 'Bullet Train' shows us Pitt's character having a bit of a hard time getting the briefcase, with a group of murderers armed to the teeth trying to stop him, all to the rhythm of a Spanish version of the 'Stayin' Alive' of the Bee Gees.
A new preview published by Sony shows us the first look at Sandra Bullock, who had not appeared in any previous image of the film, as well as new action sequences between Brad Pitt, Bad Bunny and the rest of the characters.
Brad Pitt reflected on his legacy, stating that he entered the "last stage" of his acting career.
The 58-year-old actor has received critical acclaim for his on-screen performances throughout his life, including in recent films like Ad Astra and Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.
For his role as the stuntman who kills his wife, Cliff Boothe, in Quentin Tarantino's 2019 drama, Pitt won his first Oscar: for Best Supporting Actor.
Speaking to GQ for its July/August issue, Pitt said: "I consider myself to be on my last leg, this last semester or quarter."
“What is this section going to be? And how do I want to design that?
Directed by John Wick's David Leitch, the film follows five assassins trapped on interconnected missions aboard a speeding bullet train.
Alongside Pitt, the film features a cast that includes Sandra Bullock, Joey King, Bryan Tyree Henry, Zazie Beetz, Michael Shannon, Andrew Koji, Aaron Taylor-Johnson and musician Bad Bunny.
In the GQ interview, he also talked about attending Alcoholics Anonymous meetings after his breakup with Angelina Jolie in 2016.
“Because I had seen things from other people, like Philip Seymour Hoffman, who had been recorded as they put everything out there, and that is appalling to me.”
The July/August issue of British GQ is available via digital download and on newsstands June 28.
Kraven the Hunter, Sony's next movie based on a Marvel character, is getting closer to release and now the film's lead, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, has provided more insight into what's to come. Speaking to Variety, the actor has talked about the Spider-Man antagonist that he will bring to the big screen for the first time.
While promoting Bullet Train, David Leitch's upcoming action movie starring Brad Pitt and Sandra Bullock, Taylor-Johnson made an appearance at the CineEurope conference, where he shared some interesting facts about the Kraven shoot that just wrapped. In particular, a controversial change that has been made to the character.
He described him as "one of Marvel's most iconic and notorious antiheroes, Spider-Man's number one rival." He said he found it exciting that this character "isn't an alien, he's not a wizard. He is simply a hunter, a human with convictions. An animal lover and a protector of the natural world. He is a very, very cool character." He added that, unlike other Marvel movies, "this one is shot entirely on location."
Leaving aside the fact that Kraven the hunter is "Spider-Man's number one rival", something that could be discussed by both the Green Goblin and Doctor Octopus and others, it is very striking that the actor's definition of his character is that of "an animal lover".
Although he was later presented as an anti-hero who respected his opponents, he had no qualms about killing animals (he even wore a lion skin as part of his outfit). To be fair, a bloodthirsty hunter wouldn't exactly be an easy character to sell as the lead in a superhero movie, so it's not hard to see why they made this change. However, that doesn't mean comic fans won't easily accept it.
In 2020, Brad Pitt won an Oscar for his performance in Quentin Tarantino's “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood,” and now headlines one of the most anticipated releases of the summer: Sony's “Bullet Train.” However, the 58-year-old actor isn't setting himself up for some sort of late-career resurgence of his own. On the contrary. Speaking to GQ magazine, Pitt said he believes his film career is coming to an end and entering its final stages.
“I consider myself on my last leg,” Pitt said, “this last semester or quarter I think what is this section going to be? And how do I want to design that?” he expressed.
As an actor, Pitt is headlining the action flick “Bullet Train” and “Babylon,” this year's Oscar season drama. This latest film marks Damien Chazelle's directorial development of the Oscar-winning “La La Land,” and reunites Pitt with his “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” co-star Margot Robbie. “Babylon,” which Paramount will release this Christmas, is an old Hollywood epic that focuses on industry figures adjusting to the transition from silent to talkies.
The film, starring Rooney Mara and Frances McDormand, centers on a group of Mennonite women who band together against their rapists. "It's as profound a movie as any that's been made in this decade," Pitt told GQ of "Women Talking."
When the actor's final run, who rose to fame with 1991's "Thelma and Louis," comes to a real end, his "Once Upon a Time in Hollywood" director Quentin Tarantino says the industry will lose "one of the Last movie stars left on the big screen.
“It's just a different breed of man. And frankly, I don't think you can describe exactly what that is because it's like describing the brightness of stars. I found out when we were doing 'Inglourious Basterds'. When Brad was in the shot, I didn't feel like he was looking through the camera's viewfinder. I felt like he was watching a movie. Just the presence of him created that impression,” the director explained to GQ.
“Bullet Train”, based on the novel “Maria Beetle” by Japanese writer Kōtarō Isaka, will be released in theaters in Mexico on August 4.
