Hollywood seems to have a thing about hotels, harking away back to the Norman Bates motel to John Wick to Hotel Artemis. Later this year Drew Goddard finally returns behind the lens again with Bad Times At The El Royale. Seven Strangers with secrets to hide and a shirtless Chris Hemsworth, yes ladies Shirtless (#eyecandy)!
20th Century Fox Pictures has sent us the film’s UK Trailer that teases us to ask ‘What secrets are they hiding’?
Seven strangers, each with a secret to bury, meet at Lake Tahoe’s El Royale, a rundown hotel with a dark past. Over the course of one fateful night, everyone will have a last shot at redemption… before everything goes to hell. Jeff Bridges, Chris Hemsworth, Jon Hamm, Dakota Johnson and Cynthia Erivo lead an all-star cast in BAD TIMES AT THE EL ROYALE.
Cabin In The Woods took us all by surprise, it was a film where expect the unexpected was the rule of the day. This may not be a horror this time, looks incredibly intense very dark and sinister. There is a noir feel to it and with everyone carrying a secret, that secret could be anything when it’s a Drew Goddard film!
Jeremy Latcham the film’s producer shared our excitement on this film “Drew Goddard has assembled a lobby full of amazing characters in his storied El Royale Hotel and I cannot wait for audiences to meet these truly unique folks and learn who they are and uncover what makes each of them tick. It will almost certainly not be what it is expected to be and that is a lot of the fun of the film. It is character driven in the best sense.”
Bad Times At The El Royale will be released in the UK and Ireland from October 12th.
