Hotel Artemis trailer: Jodie Foster calls the shots

It looks like a matter of life or death

Jodie Foster has been spending more time behind the camera than in front of it in recent years and the trailer for Hotel Artemis sees her lead a strong cast as she steps back into her acting shoes. Watch her in the trailer not long released by Universal, and as you will see, there are definite shades of the Continental Hotel set-up from John Wick about this one.

Jean Thomas, aka The Nurse (Jodie Foster) is the manager of the Hotel Artemis, an ultra-exclusive, members-only hospital hidden in a hotel redolent of faded ’20s glamour. Tough, sharp and utterly fearless, The Nurse treats an assortment of assassins, gunrunners, thieves and gangsters in an unexpected state-of-the-art emergency room capable of providing a new liver with a 3-D printer or injecting a patient with nanobots that heal from the inside out.

With the help of her towering assistant Everest, The Nurse wrangles some of the most dangerous criminals in the world, from sultry French assassin Nice and international arms dealer Acapulco, to bank robbers Waikiki and his brother Honolulu. One night as a violent riot rages on the streets of Los Angeles, legendary crime boss Orian Franklin, aka Niagara, arrives needing immediate treatment after a failed attempt on his life. Niagara’s sudden arrival creates a violent clash among the criminals in the hospital, with one ‘patient’ having a particularly deadly motive for checking into the hotel. The Nurse makes a decision that could jeopardize the future of the ER and everyone in it. Now the safest place for criminals in the city has become the most dangerous.

Drew Pearce directs and supporting Foster will be Sofia Boutella, Dave Bautista, Jeff Goldblum, Sterling K. Brown, Zachary Quinto and Charlie Day.

Hotel Artemis is released in the UK on July 20th 2018.
