These Ladies have no Time For Jason Bourne, James Bond or even Ethan Hunt. They are The 355 and Universal Pictures has released the official first UK Trailer and they are saving the world, step up!
Simon Kinberg last year made his directorial debut after years of producing with X-Men: Dark Phoenix. He’s back with his next project with Jessica Chastain and a group of badass ladies that also include Penélope Cruz, Fan Bingbing, Lupita Nyong’o, Diane Kruger. The idea has been around a few years now since Cannes 2018, then it included Marion Cotillard she left due to scheduling issues replaced by Kruger.
In The 355, the globetrotting espionage thriller sees the best female spies from around the world who put aside their rivalries to join together. To stop to stop a weapon been launched and sending shockwaves around the world.
Is it me, is Jessica Chastain giving off an Ethan Hunt vibe? We do like it, just got climbing up Burj Khalifa, hanging off a airplanes, jumping building to building to catch up!
A dream team of formidable female stars come together in a hard-driving original approach to the globe-trotting espionage genre in The 355.
When a top-secret weapon falls into mercenary hands, wild card CIA agent Mason “Mace” Brown (Oscar®-nominated actress Jessica Chastain) will need to join forces with rival badass German agent Marie (Diane Kruger, In the Fade), former MI6 ally and cutting-edge computer specialist Khadijah (Oscar® winner Lupita Nyong’o), and skilled Colombian psychologist Graciela (Oscar® winner Penélope Cruz) on a lethal, breakneck mission to retrieve it, while also staying one-step ahead of a mysterious woman, Lin Mi Sheng (Fan Bingbing, X-Men: Days of Future Past), who is tracking their every move.
As the action rockets around the globe from the cafes of Paris to the markets of Morocco to the wealth and glamour of Shanghai, the quartet of women will forge a tenuous loyalty that could protect the world—or get them killed.
The film also stars Sebastian Stan and Edgar Ramirez.
Universal Pictures hasn’t confirmed a UK or Irish release date yet. If you live in USA, The 355 is aiming for a January 2021, don’t be surprised if UK release is the same time.
