This Movie Is About.
Bad Times at the El Royale is a 2018 American neo-noir thriller film written and directed by Drew Goddard, who produced the project with Jeremy Latcham through TSG Entertainment and Goddard Textiles. It stars Jeff Bridges, Cynthia Erivo, Dakota Johnson, Jon Hamm, Cailee Spaeny, Lewis Pullman, and Chris Hemsworth. The plot follows six strangers and an employee at the El Royale, a hotel in between the California-Nevada border, who arrive with their own personal secrets that eventually intersect on a fateful night.The spec script for the film was written by Goddard in November 2016, before he sold it the following year in March to 20th Century Fox. After Erivo joined the film in a singing role, Russell Crowe signed on to star but dropped out before filming began. To find his replacement, Hamm was given two days to choose whether he wanted to star, a choice he quickly accepted having wanted to work with Bridges. Principal photography started in January 2018 with cinematographer Seamus McGarvey and took place until April in British Columbia, specifically on a large studio set in Vancouver, with additional filming taking place in the United States. During post-production, editing was completed by Lisa Lassek, with the score and soundtrack being composed by Michael Giacchino.Bad Times at the El Royale premiered at the TCL Chinese Theatre in Los Angeles on September 22, 2018, and was theatrically released in the United States on October 12 after being postponed by a week to avoid competition with the releases of Venom and A Star Is Born. A box-office flop, it grossed $32 million worldwide against a $31.9 million budget. The film received mixed reviews, with praise for its ensemble cast, soundtrack, and cinematography, but criticism for its concept, length, and slow pacing, with some comparing its dialogue to Pulp Fiction (1994). At the 45th ceremony, the film received the Saturn Award for Best Thriller Film and nominations for Best Writing (Goddard), Best Actor (Bridges), Best Supporting Actor (Pullman), and Best Supporting Actress (Erivo).
