Riots rule the day in Hotel Artemis, which is set in a near-future Los Angeles that looks quite unsettling. It’s a dangerous world where even criminals must seek a place of special refuge when medical care is required.
Jodie Foster stars as The Nurse, who runs that place of special refuge – a secret, members-only hospital for criminals. In a new clip, we can observe an apparently routine encounter between The Nurse and a recently-admitted criminal (Charlie Day) that hints at the film’s tone. The scene is fraught with anticipatory tension and drips with acidic humor, especially in reference to a cheerful song from The Lion King.
Watch the clip below. Sofia Boutella, Sterling K. Brown, Dave Bautista and Jeff Goldblum also star. Tickets to Hotel Artemis are now on sale; the thriller will open in theaters nationwide on Friday, June 8.
