I’m not sure how to feel about finding Chris Hemsworth hotter as a cult leader than the god of thunder…
But let’s focus on the first trailer for Bad Times at the El Royale. A 60’s period thriller that focuses on one blood-soaked night at a hotel that sits on top of five different states. Drew Goddard wrote and directed this film which seems to borrow some elements from one of his other films, Cabin in the Woods. The guests at the hotel are being watched by the managers. It’s unclear as to why they are being monitored but it’s most likely sinister.
The guests? Jeff Bridges is Father Daniel Flynn, a fake priest. Cynthia Erivo is a young up and coming singer. Dakota Johnson is a criminal who possibly kidnapped her sister played by Caille Spaeny. Jon Hamm is a vacuum cleaner salesman who loves to hear himself talk. And Chris Hemsworth is the dreamy and charismatic cult leader who will shed blood.
The main question is who is the bigger threat to the guests? The cult leader or hotel management?
We will have to wait until October 5 to find out.
