Watch This Star-Studded Trailer for Hotel Artemis

Written and directed by Drew Pearce, Hotel Artemis centers around a secret hospital for criminals and, as Jodie Foster puts it, a busy night there. After a bank heist turned south, the robbers take their wounded friend and what turns out to be the world’s most expensive pen to the hotel. In doing so they also bring along the people they stole it from.

Funnily, things kind of get violent from there. Who knew criminal activity birthed so much violence?

The first thing you’ll notice about this trailer is the absolutely insane cast. Besides Jodie Foster, Hotel Artemis stars Sterling K. Brown, Jeff Goldblum, Charlie Day, Sofia Boutella, Brian Tyree Henry (watch Atlanta, people), Jenny Slate, and Dave Bautista. I know the track record with gigantic casts in action-packed movies is questionable, but that’s one hell of a good cast.

Can Pearce take advantage of all this talent? He’s best known for co-writing Iron Man 3 and a solo writing credit for Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation. Both received fairly positive critical acclaim. He also received a good response for his show No Heroics, a British comedy about failed superheroes. There’s reason to hype here.

Because honestly, I will never understand how Hollywood throws together amazing casts like this without it succeeding.

Hotel Artemis hits theaters on June 8th.
