The first teaser for "Terminal" won't give you the first clue what it's really about, but just slide down that rabbit hole anyway. The dark, twisted tone establishes itself easily enough, along with Margot Robbie's creepy, echoing voice-over:
"There is a place like no other on Earth. A land full of wonder and mystery and danger. Some say to survive it you need to be as mad as a hatter. Which luckily, I am."
Then the cast credits flash on the screen as someone whistles ... "Danny Boy"? Heck is this?
The noir thriller marks the directorial debut of assistant director Vaughn Stein, who also wrote the script.
Here's the synopsis:
"In the dark heart of a sprawling, anonymous city, Terminal follows the twisting tales of two assassins (Dexter Fletcher and Max Irons) carrying out a sinister mission, a teacher battling a fatal illness, an enigmatic janitor and a curious waitress leading a dangerous double life. Murderous consequences unravel in the dead of night as their lives all intertwine at the hands of a mysterious criminal mastermind hell-bent on revenge."
According to Deadline, Robbie plays a "dynamic woman named Annie" who may be more involved in their mission than they originally suspected.
Here's the teaser:So should we run with the theme that it's a dark twisted Wonderland, or is it not going to be that simple? "Terminal" is scheduled for release in theaters on May 11.
