Hotel Artemis checks into a nihilistic future: Watch the first trailer

The film is notable for being Foster's first acting project since 2013's "Elysium".

That's the premise of Hotel Artemis, an upcoming futuristic thriller about a woman called "Nurse" (Jodie Foster), who runs the titular hotel that caters exclusively to the bad guys.

Artemis was the name for the Greek goddess of the hunt, it might be a reference to the fact that Brown's character, Waikiki, and his partner Honolulu (Henry) are hunted by a crime leader after they score a portable vault in a recent heist. Foster plays the hospital's main nurse and overseer.

Movies starring Jodie Foster, Sterling K. Brown, Sofia Boutella, Jeff Goldblum, Brian Tyree Henry, Jenny Slate, Zachary Quinto, Charlie Day, and Dave Bautista typically don't fall under the radar, but I had never heard of Hotel Artemis until watching the trailer above, and now my life is better for it. Entitled Hotel Artemis, it's an action-thriller focussing on a members-only secret hospital in Los Angeles that caters towards criminals. Pearce makes his feature length directing debut with the film, which is based on an original story and screenplay that he wrote. Instead of offering a comfy bed, a good night's sleep, and a mediocre breakfast served buffet-style like its name would suggest, Hotel Artemis stitches up delinquents in peace and privacy. Hotel Artemis will serve as quirky counter-programming to the star studded Ocean's Eleven franchise spinoff Ocean's 8 during its opening weekend at the domestic box office later this year.
