The first trailer for Hotel Artemis, Iron Man 3 scribe Drew Pearce‘s directorial debut, has been released. The film centers on the titular hospital that caters exclusively to the criminal kind and how one small mistake turn it into a war zone. It stars Jodie Foster, Sterling K. Brown, Sofia Boutella, Jeff Goldblum, Bryan Tyree Henry, Zachary Quinto, Charlie Day, and Dave Bautista.
Check out there trailer here below.
Now, you may think Hotel Artemis looks and feels a lot like the Contiential Hotels in the John Wick films. And you’d be right to think that. While there may be rules that forbid any patients from doing any sort of business in it, it would be the first time that we would see such a place that forces everyone in it to break the rules.
Plus the hotel isn’t as clean and prestigious as a Contiential. It’s pretty grungy, and has that whiff of death still lingering, as noted by Charlie Day who suggested that Jodie Foster get some scented candles because it smelled like someone died in the room. To which Foster replies, someone did.
This film is full of an eclectic all-star cast from Emmy and Academy Award winners to scene-stealing stars. It’s not every day you get to see Foster, Jeff Goldblum, Bryan Tyree Henry, and Dave Bautista in a film together. And the action looks like a lot of fun. Again, it’s reminiscent of John Wick, but the futuristic setting gives it a different feel. Hopefully, that’ll be enough to distance itself from the more John Wick upscale actioner. After all, this is just one trailer.
Here’s the official plot synopsis:
In HOTEL ARTEMIS, set in riot-torn, near-future Los Angeles, Jodie Foster plays The Nurse, who runs a secret, members-only emergency room for criminals. Surrounded by an all-star cast that includes Sterling K. Brown, Sofia Boutella, Jeff Goldblum, Bryan Tyree Henry, Jenny Slate, Zachary Quinto, Charlie Day, and Dave Bautista, HOTEL ARTEMIS is a stylish, high-octane action-thriller written and directed by Drew Pearce (writer of IRON MAN 3, MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE – ROGUE NATION, SHERLOCK HOLMES 3).
Hotel Artemis also stars Jenny Slate. It is scheduled to hit theaters on June 8, 2018.
