♦ Mark Kermode reviews Drew Goddard’s Bad Times At The El Royale, out now in UK and US cinemas, for the BBC…


Director: Drew Goddard

Producers: Jeremy Latcham, Drew Goddard

Screenplay: Drew Goddard

Cast: Jeff Bridges, Cynthia Erivo, Dakota Johnson, Jon Hamm, Chris Hemsworth

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. Jeff Bridges, Cynthia Erivo, Dakota Johnson, Jon Hamm, and Chris Hemsworth lead an all-star cast in Bad Times At The El Royale.

JEREMY LATCHAM – “Drew Goddard has assembled a lobby full of amazing characters in his storied El Royale Hotel and I cannot wait for audiences to meet these truly unique folks and learn who they are and uncover what makes each of them tick. It will almost certainly not be what it is expected to be and that is a lot of the fun of the film.  It is character driven in the best sense.”
