A star-studded R-rated action comedy blockbuster that isn’t a sequel? Or part of a larger franchise? Without superheroes? From David Leitch, the uncredited co-director of John Wick? And Brad Pitt as the lead? Being funny? And you said this isn’t from Tarantino? Or Guy Ritchie? You said it’s called Bullet Train? Sony made this?! Are you sure this isn’t a franchise? Oh, it’s based on a book? Does it read the room? No one seems to care? Oh, some people care? Did she care when she broke my heart? I already know the answer to that question? Impossible to say, regardless? Brian Tyree Henry is in this, too?
