·2 min read

Brad Pitt's new action movie Bullet Train has secured a release date.

Deadline has confirmed that Sony will be releasing Bullet Train, which also stars Sandra Bullock and Lady Gaga, theatrically and in IMAX and large premium formats on April 8, 2022, so we now know when we'll be zooming into cinemas to see it.

The action-thriller is based on the Japanese novel Maria Beetle by Kōtarō Isaka and focuses on a group of five assassins who all board the same bullet train with very different agendas but something unexpected in common. Of course, chaos soon erupts.

Alongside Pitt, Ocean's 8 actress Sandra Bullock and A Star Is Born actress and singer Lady Gaga, the movie will also star Marvel's Eternals actor Brian Tyree Henry and Westworld and Avengers: Endgame star Hiroyuki Sanada.

Actress Joey King shared a first glimpse at the movie – albeit a backstage one –earlier this year when she shared a photo of herself hanging out with co-star Brian Tyree Henry behind the scenes.

Intriguingly, she captioned the photo: "Please have your tickets ready for the killer, I mean conductor #BulletTrainMovie," suggesting that we can expect some killer action in the movie.

Bullet Train is due to be released in cinemas on April 8, 2022.
