WHAT IS BULLET TRAIN?
Bullet Train is the next film by director David Leitch, who has previously directed blockbusters such as Atomic Blonde, Deadpool 2, and, most recently, Fast & Furious Presents Hobbs & Shaw. The film is based on famed crime novelist Ktar Isaka’s 2010 novel.
BULLET TRAIN PLOT
The film Bullet Train tells the narrative of five assassins who board a high-speed train in modern Japan. The assassins discover that their objectives are linked in some way — the trailer teases a MacGuffin in the form of a valuable briefcase — pitting them against one another.
The following is Sony’s official synopsis:
“Bullet Train is a hilarious, delirious action-thriller from Deadpool 2 filmmaker David Leitch, and it’s an original movie experience.” “Set against the backdrop of a nonstop trip through modern-day Japan, Brad Pitt leads an ensemble cast of colorful, different assassins — all with related but opposing agendas.”

WHY DOES BULLET TRAIN LOOK SO… COOL?
The most striking aspect of Bullet Train is its distinct style. Bullet Train is pushing unimaginable levels of fun, set to a foreign language cover of The Bee Gees’ “Stayin’ Alive.” There’s expertly-choreographed and directed action, as well as humor. Examine the logic in Brad Pitt and Brian Tyree Henry’s “quiet car” fight sequence, and observe how it all builds to a punchline about being whisper quiet.
The film’s visual clichés of neo-noir Japanese aesthetics have some viewers concerned. Another potential issue is that it is based on a Japanese novel but features a large number of white actors (even though many of the book’s characters have ethnically ambiguous codenames).
BULLET TRAIN WILL BE RELEASED IN THEATERS ON JULY 15.
