When Margot Robbie first burst onto the scene in The Wolf of Wall Street a few years back, it wasn’t clear if she was the type of actress who had the range to stick around for very long in the business. However, in the year’s past, she’s proven just how talented she really is. Most recently, she’s taught us that she can go with mainstream and critical with roles like Harley Quinn and Tonya Harding.
Seemingly overnight, she has become both a respected and bankable talent in the business. This latest film that stars her, Simon Pegg, Dexter Fletcher, Max Irons, and Mike Myers, and takes place in a neon-drenched underbelly of an unknown city. The trailer caught my attention from the get-go, and while the visual stylings and unique world have me intrigued, I had a hard time following just what the hell was going on in it, even with the synopsis at hand.
The official synopsis for Terminal is below:
“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.”
If nothing else, they seem to have succeeded in selling me on a unique vision. I only hope that either we get a clearer trailer, or that the movie itself actually portrays some sort of real plot or emotional throughline I can connect with. What did you think of this trailer? Sound off down below!
Terminal hits theaters on May 11, 2018.
