Sony Pictures has revealed a brand new Bullet Train poster for David Leitch’s newest action-thriller film, highlighting the all-star ensemble cast led by Brad Pitt. It is currently scheduled to make its debut in theaters on August 5.
In addition to the poster, the studio has also dropped a new version of the synopsis, which gives fans a better idea of the film’s insane plot, while also confirming Pitt’s role as Ladybug.
“In Bullet Train, Brad Pitt stars as Ladybug, an unlucky assassin determined to do his job peacefully after one too many gigs gone off the rails,” reads the new synopsis. “Fate, however, may have other plans, as Ladybug’s latest mission puts him on a collision course with lethal adversaries from around the globe – all with connected, yet conflicting, objectives – on the world’s fastest train. From the director of Deadpool 2, David Leitch, the end of the line is only the beginning in a wild, non-stop thrill ride through modern-day Japan.”
Bullet Train is directed by David Leitch (Deadpool 2) from a screenplay written by Zak Olkewicz (Fear Street), based on Isaka Kotaro’s Japanese novel titled Maria Beetle. It stars Brad Pitt, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Andrew Koji, Joey King, Brian Tyree Henry, Michael Shannon, Hiroyuki Sanada, Bad Bunny, Masi Oka, Zazie Beetz, Logan Lerman, Karen Fukuhara, and Sandra Bullock.
Bullet Train is being produced by Leitch and Kelly McCormick through their company 87North along with Antoine Fuqua and Kat Samick. Executive producers are Kotaro’s Ryosuke Saegusa and Yuma, with Brittany Morrissey executive overseeing the film for Sony Pictures.
