Bad Times at the El Royale

Jeff Bridges, John Hamm, Dakota Johnson, Chris Hemsworth and Cynthia Erivo star in this mesmerising pulp thriller. The El Royale is a once-celebrated Rat Pack-style hotel that has seen better days, but is not all it appears to be, and neither are the five guest who check in one dark and stormy night in 1969. Director Drew Goddard (The Cabin in the Woods) convinced the star actors in the cast to take considerable pay cuts to greenlight his ambitious film-noir homage, pulp fiction at its best.
