Brad Pitt’s upcoming movie, “Bullet Train,” directed by David Leitch and starring an all-star cast, will be released in theaters this summer. Kotaro Isaka’s 2010 novel served as the inspiration for this film, which follows a group of assassins who discover their target is connected. The movie will be released in theaters on July 15, 2022.
Bullet Train star-studded casts
Inverse has revealed that the cast of Bullet Train includes a huge number of recognizable faces if we have seen the fair share of Marvel films:
While on a mission in Japan, Brad Pitt plays “Ladybug,” an assassin wanting to put his career behind him. Prince will be played by Joey King, Andrew Koji stars as Kimura. Tangerine will be played by Aaron Taylor-Johnson (Avengers: Age of Ultron), Lemon is played by Brian Tyree Henry (Eternals), Hornet is played by Zazie Beetz (Deadpool 2, Joker), and Maria Beetle will be played by Sandra Bullock.
The rest of the cast hasn’t been confirmed yet, but they will all be in the movie. They include Masi Oka, Michael Shannon, Logan Lerman, Hiroyuki Sanada, Karen Fukuhara, and Benito Antonio Martinez Ocasio.
Fast-paced action scenes in Bullet Train
The trailer features dramatic, fast-paced action scenes matched to the song “Stayin’ Alive,” as well as a sophisticated aesthetic that director David Leitch is well-known for creating. According to Variety, as Pitt and his various co-stars seek to complete their missions, they become embroiled in a series of brutal fights that take place throughout the train’s several compartments.
Some moviegoers are wary of the film’s neo-noir Japanese visuals. Another potential issue is that it is based on a Japanese novel yet includes many white performers. While missing in most mainstream action movies nowadays, Bullet Train has style.
Bullet Train follows Pitt’s character, Lady Bug, a semi-retired professional crook with a new attitude on life. To make matters worse, it turns out that half of all passengers have similar goals when they attempt to steal an onboard briefcase. A lot of action takes place next in a very little area, and it all looks fantastic.
