While it is still unclear if Drew Goddard will get to make X-Force before Disney decides to hand over the X-Men characters to Marvel Studios, his upcoming 20th Century Fox Film, Bad Times At The El Royale, may give you an idea of what X-Force would be like. If nothing else, though, the movie looks remarkable, as seen in this new trailer.
Set in a stylish hotel on the California/Nevada border, Jeff Bridges, Cynthia Erivo, Dakota Johnson, Jon Hamm, Cailee Spaeny, Lewis Pullman, Nick Offerman and Chris Hemsworth star as guests — and management — of the Lake Tahoe establishment, which has seen better days. Using large one-way mirrors, Hamm observes his guests while Bridges and Johnson’s characters have more than R&R in mind for their stays. But it is difficult to say who is the most danger. Although, Johnson may have plenty of reason to arm herself against Hemsworth. Then again, even his character might have a last shot at redemption before the storm rolls in and everything goes to hell.
And whether or not Goddard ends up making X-Force, this movie may prove him to be a talent Disney and/or Marvel will want to work with anyway.
Bad Times at the El Royale opens on October 5th.
