Seven strangers, each with a secret to bury, meet at Lake Tahoe’s El Royale, a rundown hotel with a dark past.
Over the course of one fateful night, everyone will have a last shot at redemption – before everything goes to hell. Bad Times At The El Royale releases throughout Kuwait on October 11 and brings a fantastic cast together, featuring Chris Hemsworth, Dakota Johnson, Jeff Bridges and Jon Hamm among others.
The film, written and directed by Drew Goddard, evolves around seven strangers – each with his or her own secret – who meet at a mysterious, rundown hotel in Lake Tahoe. Drew Goddard has directed The Cabin in the Woods and was the screenwriter for past box office successes such as The Martian, Cloverfield, World War Z and TV series Lost.
“Drew Goddard has assembled a lobby full of amazing characters in his storied El Royale Hotel and I cannot wait for audiences to meet these truly unique folks and learn who they are and uncover what makes each of them tick. It will almost certainly not be what it is expected to be and that is a lot of the fun of the film. It is character driven in the best sense.” producer Jeremy Latcham said.
Bad Times At El Royale stands out because it is so visually arresting. As soon as you encounter the guests who gather in the lobby of the El Royale, you enter a different world, one that took shape in the filmmaker’s vivid imagination. Situated on the border of California and Nevada, it celebrates the best and worst of both states. But it has seen better days. Once a hot spot, it is now faded and nearly vacant.
“I liked the idea of a hotel that had a shadier side to it. I found that exciting,” Goddard said. “The movie is about these characters who all have dark secrets; there are questions about who they are and who they were. And I felt that this hotel would be a perfect petri dish in which to explore them.”
Bad Times At The El Royale will release in Kuwait on the October 11 2018.
