Check out the brand new trailer below:
Seven strangers, each with a secret to bury, meet at Lake Tahoe’s El Royale, a rundown hotel with a dark past in 1969. Over the course of one fateful night, everyone will have a last shot at redemption… before everything goes to hell. A young concierge (Lewis Pullman) greets the strangers: a down-on-his-luck priest (Jeff Bridges), a singer (Cynthia Erivo), an impressionable Southern girl (Cailee Spaeny) and her older sister (Dakota Johnson), a vacuum cleaner salesman (Jon Hamm), and a charismatic cult leader (Chris Hemsworth).
Directed by Drew Goddard, Bad Times at the El Royale looks like it will be an instant classic when it is released thanks to it’s sharp story and one hell of an assembled cast. With the likes of Jeff Bridges, Jon Hamm, Dakota Johnson and Chris Hemsworth on board you can guarantee that this will be a film to savor.
While this first trailer doesn’t give a whole lot away what is apparent is that nothing and no-one is what it seems and that audiences will be in for one twisted tale here. Goddard also appears to be shifting things around here and he’s really using his cast to his advantage and playing them off against type. This is particularly true of Hemsworth’s mysterious and sinister cult leader who arrives at the hotel with ill intentions and who is most definitely the villain of the piece.
You can expect a whole lot of twists and turns when Bad Times at the El Royale arrives in cinemas on October 18.
