Bullet Train Soundtrack: Every Song Featured in the movie – With a gross turnover of over $30 million domestically, David Leitch’s Bullet Train is the number uno movie in the world right now. Starring the likes of Brad Pitt, Joey King, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Brian Tyree Henry, Andrew Koji, Hiroyuki Sanada, Michael Shannon, Sandra Bullock, Bad Bunny, Logan Lerman & Zazie Beetz, the action extravaganza is set entirely on a train.
Based on the Japanese novel “Maria Beetle” by Kotaro Isaka and the Sony Pictures-produced actioner made a strong debut at the global box office too, raking in a whopping $60 million in its first weekend alone.
Following Ladybug (Brad Pitt), a well-known assassin returning to do a job, the journey from Tokyo to Kyoto, onboard a bullet train feels like a swift move, but Leitch’s movie is populated by a host of villains who cross each other’s paths – quite literally.
