Global Road has unveiled the first trailer for Hotel Artemis, the crime thriller toplined by Jodie Foster and This Is Us‘ Sterling K. Brown. The pic, written and directed by Drew Pearce, centers on Foster’s The Nurse, who runs a secret, members-only, near-future Los Angeles hospital for criminals. It also featured a loaded ensemble that includes Sofia Boutella, Jeff Goldblum, Brian Tyree Henry, Jenny Slate, Zachary Quinto, Charlie Day and Dave Bautista.
The plot revolves around an armed robbery that goes wrong for Brown’s Waikiki and Henry’s Honolulu, the latter of whom is injured and needs attention at the hotel, where strictly enforced rules even among the criminal set has kept it a going concern for years (tough guy Bautista is a “health care professional,” so you get the idea). Waikiki’s valuable prize from the heist though eventually draws the biggest bad guy to the Artemis to get it back.
Global Road acquired Hotel Artemis in February in a deal sources pegged at $4 million, one of the first moves under the re-branded company being led by chairman and CEO Rob Friedman.
The movie, which is produced by Marc Platt, Adam Siegel and The Ink Factory’s Stephen Cornwell and Simon Cornwell, hits theaters June 8.
