Hotel Artemis, starring Jodie Foster and Jeff Goldblum, Sterling K Brown, Sofia Boutella, Dave Bautista, Zachary Quinto and Charlie Day, is being released in cinemas on July 20th, 2018.
Hotel Artemis, starring Jodie Foster (‘Silence of the Lambs’) and Jeff Goldblum (‘The Fly’, ‘Jurassic Park’, and ‘Thor: Ragnarok’) hits cinema screen this summer on July 20th.
Artemis was the Greek Goddess of the wild, and wild animals, and boy, is this hotel full of them. Hotel Artemis is the E.R for the criminal fraternity of LA, disguised as a faded 20s Deco hotel. Jodie Foster is The Nurse, a hard-nosed, fearless woman who treats the scum of the underworld when they need medical help. Aided by her man-mountain of an assistant Everest, played by Dave Bautista (“Guardians of the Galaxy”), she runs a tight hospital. That is until crime boss Orian Franklin, aka Niagara, enters the building in need of medical assistance, and then all hell breaks loose. It sets a chain of events that see warring factions in the hospital rise and turn on each other. The Nurse is not impressed. She is a stickler for the rules.
Hotel Artemis is funny, violent, atmospheric and a bit Gothic in its style. Written and directed by Drew Pearce (‘Mission Impossible’ and ‘Iron Man 3’) and produced by Marc Platt and Adam Siegal, this film has a whiff of ‘Sin City’ and ‘American Horror Story: Hotel’, but that’s a good thing indeed.
This is a violent thrill-ride that’ll keep you glued to your seat.
Artemis is also the Goddess of midwives and birth, and I can’t help thinking that with Hotel Artemis, we could see the birth of another money-spinning franchise.
