This Friday, August 5 marks brad pittis back on the big screen as a leading man. High-speed train finds the actor in an action-comedy as Ladybug, a trained slayer, who reluctantly accepts a job after a long hiatus (sounds a bit meta, right?) The plan is pretty simple: hop aboard a train bound for Tokyo in Kyoto and collect a briefcase. Simple, that is, until Ladybug realizes he’s not the only assassin looking for the briefcase – this ride is about to get bumpy!

Neon lights, punchy editing, and guns are a brief summary of the trailer for High-speed train. Plus, some unexpected but familiar faces like Joey King, bad bunny, Brian Tyree Henry, Michael Shannon, Hiroyuki Sanada, Logan Lerman, Zazie Beetzand Aaron Taylor Johnson are in the game; definitely a multi-talented group. Ladybug interacts with the eclectic cast of characters as he jumps between train cars and dodges punches. Pitt pointed out to QG that his character’s return to acting might be premature: “You know, you’re in therapy for a month, you have an epiphany, and you think you’ve got it all figured out, and you’ll never be in despair again. That was it. I get it, I’m ready to go!” But Ladybug might be in over her head this time.

High-speed trainthe director, David Leitchtook over the project in 2020 after proving himself as an effective action filmmaker after helming projects like Atomic Blonde, Deadpool 2and Hobbs & Shawshowing an impressive pivot from his previous career – Leich was Pitt’s double in fight club (1999), Troy (2004), and Mr. and Mrs. Smith (2005). Their relationship veered into new creative territory, and now, instead of throwing himself through glass or diving through a window for Brad, he’s orchestrating an entire movie for him. Quite an impressive glow!

High-speed train is based on the Japanese novel by Kotaro Isaka title Maria Beetle (a character played by Sandra Bullock in the movie) which was a huge hit in Japan upon its release. It’s the kind of thriller that drives you to the edge of your seat, and judging by the trailer, the movie will do the same. Followed, of course, by a few laughs. And Brad Pitt! We can’t forget Brad Pitt. In the lyrics of Quentin Tarantino“He’s one of the last movie stars on the big screen. He’s just a different breed of man.
