20th Century Fox has released the official poster, photos, and the first full trailer for Bad Times at the El Royale, a new thriller from writer/director Drew Goddard (director 2012’s The Cabin in the Woods, writer of The Martian). The 2018 feature film reunites Goddard with one of his The Cabin in the Woods stars, Chris Hemsworth. Hemsworth didn’t survive long in Cabin in the Woods, but hopefully Goddard won’t be killing him off early in their latest collaboration.
Hemsworth, most recently seen reprising his role as Thor in Avengers: Infinity War, makes his entrance in the two-minute trailer doing a shimmy with an unbuttoned shirt. We’re also treated to clips of Hemsworth shirtless in the rain.
The cast also includes Jeff Bridges (Hell or High Water), Cynthia Erivo (Mr Selfridge), Dakota Johnson (the Fifty Shades film franchise), Jon Hamm (Baby Driver), Cailee Spaeny (Pacific Rim: Uprising), Lewis Pullman (The Strangers: Prey at Night), and Nick Offerman (Parks and Recreation). In addition to writing and directing, Drew Goddard produced Bad Times at El Royale with Jeremy Latcham.
20th Century Fox will release Bad Times at the El Royale in theaters on October 5, 2018.
The Plot: Seven strangers, each with a secret to bury, meet at Lake Tahoe’s El Royale, a rundown hotel with a dark past. Over the course of one fateful night, everyone will have a last shot at redemption… before everything goes to hell.
