Bullet Train was one of the biggest and most anticipated releases of this Summer season. While its performance at the box office hasn’t been all that satisfactory, the movie made sure that it uses the big screen factor to the best of its abilities.
Featuring a star-studded cast headed by Brad Pitt – who stars as a super unlucky assassin named Ladybug, sent to do a quick deed by his handler Maria Beetle (Sandra Bullock), the action extravaganza gets kicking when the simple task of retrieving a briefcase turns into chaos.
Also on this train to Tokyo are a bunch of dangerous assassins, including oddly inventive characters played by Joey King, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Brian Tyree Henry, Hiroyuki Sanada, Zazie Beetz, Karen Fukuhara, Logan Lerman, Michael Shannon, and others.
Packed with a banger of a soundtrack and based on the Japanese novel Maria Bettle by Kataro Iska, the movie is helmed by director David Leitch, who previously directed Deadpool 2 and Atomic Blonde, and is well known for his super action choreography for the John Wick movies.

The deal says that once a Sony movie is on Netflix, it will stay there for 18 months before shifting to Disney. Since Uncharted starring Tom Holland had the same release strategy, one can assume that Bullet Train should be available on Netflix by the end of 2022 until announced earlier.
