Brad Pitt is code name Ladybug, a criminal-for-hire tasked to do a rather vague job … find a briefcase on a speeding Japanese bullet train and get off at the next stop. He is taking it from Tangerine (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) and Lemon (Brian Tyree Henry), two assassins who are guarding the package for a fearsome boss named White Death. Meanwhile, the Hornet (Zazie Beetz) is on the same train, looking to double cross everyone. Will this train ever reach its destiny?

“Bullet Train” opens in theaters on August 5th. Featuring Brad Pitt, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Brian Tyree Henry, Zazie Beetz and Hiroyuki Sanada. Screenplay adapted by Zak Olkewicz. Directed by David Leitch. Rated “R”
