Do you want to watch Jessica Chastain kick ass? How about Lupita Nyong’o? Penélope Cruz? Bingbing Fan? Diane Kruger? If the answer is yes, then The 355 could well be the action thriller for you. Delayed because of the pandemic, it’ll now hit cinemas in January, and the latest trailer is online.
The plot’s on need-to-know basis, so here’s what you need: when a top-secret weapon falls into mercenary hands, wild card CIA agent Mason “Mace” Brown (Chastain) will need to join forces with rival badass German agent Marie (Kruger), former MI6 ally and cutting-edge computer specialist Khadijah (Nyong’o), and skilled Colombian psychologist Graciela (Cruz) on a lethal, breakneck mission to retrieve it, while also staying one step ahead of a mysterious woman, Lin Mi Sheng (Fan), who is tracking their every move. As the action rockets around the globe from the cafes of Paris to the markets of Morocco to the opulent auction houses of Shanghai, the quartet of women will forge a tenuous loyalty that could protect the world – or get them killed. The film also stars Édgar Ramirez and Sebastian Stan.
With a script from Theresa Rebeck and director Simon Kinberg, the movie will be out on 7 January next year.
