Hotel Artemis' Blood Soaked, Curse Fueled, Final Red Band Trailer

Hotel Artemis Movie Poster
You know what I love about the world we live in right now? Among the piles of re-makes, re-boots and re-imaginings, there is still an ocean of producers and film companies willing to take a chance on a never-ending parade of top quality scifi and horror titles oozing with originality, style and charisma. Hotel Artemis is one such title that also stacks the deck with a cast of actors you can't say no to!

Set in riot-torn, near-future Los Angeles, HOTEL ARTEMIS is an original, high-octane action-thriller starring Jodie Foster as The Nurse, who runs a secret, members-only hospital for criminals. Jodie Foster is joined by an all-star cast that includes Sterling K. Brown, Sofia Boutella, Jeff Goldblum, Brian Tyree Henry, Jenny Slate, Zachary Quinto, Charlie Day, and Dave Bautista.

Check out the Red Band Trailer!! I probably don't need to say this, but turn down the volume a bit if you are at work. Many, many curses incoming...
