After six years, Drew Goddard is finally following up his wonderfully meta and crazy Cabin in the Woods with a star-studded thriller, Bad Times at the El Royale. Set in the 60’s at the titular El Royal hotel, which literally straddles the border of California and Nevada, seven strangers converge, each harboring some sort of secret that would result in terrible consequences for them if it’s exposed. Jeff Bridges, Dakota Johnson, Jon Hamm, Cynthia Erivo, Nick Offerman, Lewis Pullman, Cailee Spaeny, Manny Jacinto and Jim O’Heir are all here along with Chris Hemsworth, who seems to be channeling Charles Manson. It looks amazing with the El Royale gorgeously realized in all its old-school hotel/casino glory and that cast is insane. It’s out on October 5th and you can check out the new trailer below.
I’m like the J. Jonah Jameson of Everything Action, writing and editing and constantly demanding pictures of Spider-Man.
