In the first trailer for Bad Times at the El Royale, no one is as they truly seem (and Chris Hemsworth is shirtless and wet).
Written and directed by Drew Goddard (The Cabin in the Woods), the film focuses on seven strangers gathering at the titular hotel in Lake Tahoe in the 1960s. All of them have secrets and all of them are willing to do whatever it takes to keep them from getting out.
The trailer is tantalizing (and well shot) enough that it definitely grabs our attention. The group that has gathered at the El Royale are all interesting indeed.
In the film, Jon Hamm is a vacuum cleaner salesman who checks in alongside not-a-priest Jeff Bridges, soul singer Cynthia Erivo, cult leader Chris Hemsworth, and sisters on the run Dakota Johnson and Cailee Spaeny. Rounding out the cast is concierge Lewis Pullman and Nick Offerrman.
It looks certainly as twisty and genre-bending as Cabin in the Woods was. So count us in to view it.
