Upcoming: BAD TIMES AT THE EL ROYALE

This just looks cool. Written and directed by Drew Goddard (The Martian, Daredevil, etc.), here’s the synopsis:

Seven strangers, each with a secret to bury, meet at Lake Tahoe’s El Royale, a rundown hotel with a dark past. Over the course of one fateful night, everyone will have a last shot at redemption — before everything goes to hell.

The cast, as you can see in the trailer, is excellent, too. Really looking forward to this one.
