20th Century Fox has released another new trailer for the upcoming Drew Goddard film Bad Times at the El Royale. Goddard, who has some fantastic credits to his name, finally returns to the directing chair in this year’s hottest mystery thriller, which is set at a hotel that sits directly on state lines between California and Nevada. But while it’s fun and games to begin with picking which state you want to stay in, the story quickly unravels as the guests, all of the guests, aren’t who they say they are.
I cannot wait for this movie. Not just because I think Goddard is one of the most underrated directing talents in the business, but the cast looks absolutely incredible in their roles. The trailers so far don’t feel like they’re revealing too much, rather setting us up for a wacky, somewhat scary mystery story that will have some major twists and turns. Remember The Cabin In the Woods with Chris Hemsworth? Yeah, Goddard wrote and directed that film as well. Remember how much of a mind f**k the end of that movie was? I expect nothing less than that with Bad Times at the El Royale.
Check out the new tailer below, and make sure you head down to the comments and leave your thoughts? What did you think of the trailer? How about the cast assembled?
