“The Express Train”: “I tend to believe in destiny” – Brad Pitt

After “John Wick,” “Atomic Blond,” and “Deadpool 2,” here’s David Leitch’s “High Speed ​​​​Train” that brings together Brad Pitt, Joey King, and Aaron Taylor-Johnson to name a few.

Dave comes from the world of stunts. Dave became my double at Fight Club in 1998 and he was the one who taught me to fight. Our association worked so well that we continued to work together until 2004. Then he left me. Et maintenant, nous avons effectué un tour complet et c’est un plaisir de l’avoir eu comme patron», a raconté Brad Pitt lors de la conférence de presse de présentation du film devant un parterre de journalistes rassemblés à Berlin, en Allemagne, last month.

“Bullet Train” is an adaptation of the Japanese novel “Maria Beetle” by Kotaro Isaka and set on the train connecting Tokyo and Kyoto. The feature film is 126 minutes long, approximate journey time.

On the plane, Lady Bug (Brad Pitt), an unlucky assassin, must retrieve a suitcase as per her assignment given by Maria Beetle, voiced by Sandra Bullock. The problem is that he quickly realizes that he is not immediately alone. Prince Joey King is a fearsome killer who pretends to be a student. Tangerine (Aaron Taylor-Johnson), a British national who is the “twin” of Lemon (Brian Terry Henry). And that doesn’t include Yuichi Kimura (Andrew Koji) and a few surprise killers.

Not just a business…

More than an action movie, “High Speed ​​​​Train” is also a black, totally crazy comedy where the actors “brought everything to a level we didn’t expect,” producer Kelly McCormick asserted.

“On set, Aaron Taylor told Johnson, we were in different spaces depending on the scenes to be played, which generated a very important sense of claustrophobia to me. We used that with our characters.”

Because it was shot in the midst of a pandemic the film is “flying fast,” the actors improvised many of their dialogues.

“We were on lockdown, it was before the vaccinations, we were surrounded by a dark cloud and we all told ourselves we had to have fun while working so the audience would laugh. I was exploring my character and was able to take inspiration from Brian and thus adapt the dialogues,” explained Aaron Taylor-Johnson.

During the “bullet train”, the ladybird often reflects on her bad luck, fate, and death. Brad Pitt himself asks the same questions. “It’s a very funny movie, but there is a sub-meaning of ‘death.’ I tend, on a personal level, to believe in fate. But I often have discussions with myself and ask myself the question of knowing how mortal our lives become – we are just dolls – and to The extent to which our will and our free will are exercised. I simply believe that life is a mixture of the two…simply because I don’t have a better answer,” the actor said.

A mixture of violence and humor, “high-speed train”, for the director, “balances the undertones, which is on top of the production’s biggest challenge. The fact of creating a world on the frontiers of the absurd allowed us to explore this kind of comic book world. That’s why we can also include more themes Seriously, David Leach said, “It’s important that the film conveys the audience, that the latter live an adventure and we can have all of these undertones in the same feature film.”

The “high-speed rail” entered the station in theaters across the county on August 5.
