Alllllll the way back in May of 2016, we brought you the news that Margot Robbie, Dexter Fletcher, Mike Myers and Simon Pegg had all signed up for a new film called Terminal. In the time since, we'd sort of forgotten all about this project (what can we say? A lot's happened since 2016), but today the IMDb Twitter feed dropped the film's very first teaser trailer, and it's ...
Well, it's definitely got our curiosity piqued. Take a look at this.
What the hell was that? We're getting serious Dark City vibes from this, and that is absolutely not a complaint. Here's the plot synopsis we ran in 2016:
"Terminal follows two hit men (Fletcher and Irons) as they embark on a borderline suicide mission for a mysterious employer and a large paycheck. Along the way, the unlikely pair discover that a dynamic woman named Annie (Robbie) may be more involved than they had originally suspected."
Our friends over at Coming Soon have an updated plot synopsis, one that seems to imply a film that's more sprawling in scope than the synopsis above:
"In the dark heart of a sprawling, anonymous city, Terminal follows the twisting tales of two assassins carrying out a sinister mission, a teacher battling a fatal illness, an enigmatic janitor and a curious waitress leading a dangerous double life. Murderous consequences unravel in the dead of night as their lives all intertwine at the hands of a mysterious criminal mastermind hell-bent on revenge."
So, sounds like Terminal's going to feature multiple storylines, a whole bunch of characters and no small amount of shady behavior. Combined with the imagery in the trailer above and the pedigree of the cast, we're very curious to see what writer/director Vaughn Stein has come up with here.
RLJ will release Terminal on May 11th. Are y'all as intrigued by this weirdness as we are? Sound off in the comments below, and stay tuned for more on this one as it becomes available.
