Comments

Sony Pictures' upcoming action comedy Bullet Train's release date has shifted to August 5. The film has had its debut date shuffled a handful of times already, but as of this writing, this newly confirmed date is expected to stick.

Brad Pitt stars in Bullet Train, playing an assassin who apparently loves to commute on the high-speed rail. The story follows a group of five assassins on a high-speed train. Check out the movie's first trailer, which dropped back in March.

Based on the book Bullet Train: A Novel by Kotaro Isaka--which follows five assassins on a high-speed train--the film seems to follow the story of the novel, but focuses primarily on Pitt's character, an assassin who doesn't want to kill anymore. A few of the other assassins we see in this trailer are Brian Tyree Henry (Atlanta, Eternals), Hiroyuki Sanada (Mortal Kombat, The Wolverine), Zazie Beetz (Atlanta, Deadpool 2), and Aaron Taylor-Johnson (Kick-Ass, Avengers: Age of Ultron).

The film's cast also includes Sandra Bullock, Joey King, Andrew Koji, Michael Shannon, and more. Zak Olkewicz (Fear Street: Part Two - 1978) wrote the screenplay.

Bullet Train was previously set to release on July 29 but has now been pushed back to its current release date of August 5.
