Bullet Train is directed by David Leitch (Atomic Blonde, Deadpool 2) and is slated to release in North America on August 5 and Japan on September 1. Sony Pictures Entertainment, who produced the film, describes it as such:


In Bullet Train, Brad Pitt stars as Ladybug, an unlucky assassin determined to do his job peacefully after one too many gigs gone off the rails. Fate, however, may have other plans, as Ladybug's latest mission puts him on a collision course with lethal adversaries from around the globe—all with connected, yet conflicting, objectives—on the world's fastest train. The end of the line is just the beginning in this non-stop thrill-ride through modern-day Japan from David Leitch, the director of Deadpool 2.
