If we look back, until 2020, it is practically impossible for the words confinement, coronavirus and fear not to appear in our memories. That year, the coronavirus pandemic officially began, which, even in 2022, we are dragging on.
An excess of information full of uncertainty, contradictory decisions by governments and other issues that you will remember perfectly led everyone to a state of generalized hysteria.
The most striking thing about that year was the massive population lockdowns that left cities empty overnight.
It is in that period of time that Brad Pitt found himself reading a script for an action movie that he ended up starring in: Bullet Train.
David Letitch The movie premiered a few weeks ago. The film follows a hit man who takes one last job before he retires: obtaining a briefcase on a bullet train traveling between Tokyo and Kyoto.
If you often watch series when traveling or in various parts of the house, these tablets can be good companions for entertainment consumption.
The job, of course, was not going to be so simple: Ladybug (Brad Pitt) is soon involved in a brawl in the cars against other hitmen who have the same objective.
During the Bullet Train press tour (via Looper), Pitt explained how the film’s script made him feel when he read it during the strictest months of the lockdown.
“It was that point in lockdown, I think after the summer, when we were approaching the fall, it was four or five months. People were freaking out. There was a sense of global depression in the air or something. I read this script. .. and I said, ‘That’s the balm we need right now. That’s what I want to see.’ So we went with it.”
Brad Pitt does not rule out being in the twilight of his acting career, something he has already dropped on several occasions. Bullet Train is one of those movies that reminds us why we love the 58-year-old actor so much.
The film has amortized its production budget, but is making very timid profits at the box office. for now, Bullet Train has raised 148 million dollars, compared to its cost of 90 million.
