Brad Pitt, Andrew Koji, Aaron Taylor-Johnson Grace ‘Bullet Train’ Poster

Bullet Train is an upcoming action movie from David Leitch, who directed Deadpool 2, Nobody, Fast and Furious Presents: Hobbs and Shaw, John Wick and more. Based on the Japanese novel Maria Beetle (aka Bullet Train) by Kōtarō Isaka, the film stars Brad Pitt as an unfortunate assassin who will come to blows with other enemies inside a bullet train. Today, Sony Pictures has released the Bullet Train poster featuring Pitt, Brian Tyree Henry, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Andrew Koji, Hiroyuki Sanada and the rest of the cast.

The 15-minute opening sequence from Bullet Train was teased at CinemaCon 2022 in Las Vegas with Leitch presenting on the stage. The footage shown gave audiences a taste of the action-comedy that Leitch’s directing style is known for. We were about to check out the footage from the event, and it conveyed the comedic tone of the film involving Pitt as he talks to Sandra Bullock, who plays his handler, about his codename Ladybug.

Leitch talks about the film’s message about how life can get in the way, especially with the case of Pitt’s Ladybug.

“The movie, in a sense, is a meditation on fate, things you can’t control, and how you impact somebody’s life halfway around the world and you don’t even realize it,” Leitch tells EW. “All of these crazy characters are connected in ways they don’t really understand yet. It all comes to fruition in the end.”
