Bad Bunny stabs Brad Pitt in the trailer for Bullet Train. On Wednesday, Sony Pictures dropped the first trailer for the David Leitch-directed action film, which follows assassin Ladybug (played by Pitt) as he comes for blood on a Japanese bullet train. The film drops in July.
The trailer — backed by a cover of Gloria Gaynor’s “Stayin’ Alive” — gives a look at the comedic elements of the bloody action film as Ladybug engages in a physical fight with Lemon (Brian Tyree Henry) before being shushed on the quiet car. “You’re getting the new and improved me… Every job I do, somebody dies,” says Pitt’s character in the trailer. “I’m not that guy anymore.”
The trailer sees Ladybug try to snatch a briefcase unnoticed. But then, a wild Bad Bunny — in a Mexican cowboy outfit, because of course Bad Bunny is Mexican in this — appears. (Cue his corrido tumbado “Soy El Diablo” with Nataneal Cano.) “Dude, I don’t even know you!” says Ladybug as Bad Bunny flips him over the table.
The film also gives a first look at Ladybug’s fellow professional assassins: Prince (Joey King), Tangerine (Aaron Taylor-Johnson), and Hornet (Zazie Beetz). Directed by Leitch — who’s behind Hobbs & Shaw and Deadpool 2 — the film, written by Zak Olkewicz, is based on the Japanese novel Maria Beetle by Kotaro Isaka.
Bullet Train — which drops July 15 in theaters — is the “Booker T” reggaetón star’s latest foray into acting. He plays the recurring role of Kitty on Narcos: Mexico, and also appeared on numerous iterations of WWE WrestleMania and Royal Rumble. Bad Bunny is currently on his El Último Tour del Mundo through early April.
