bad times at the el royale clip

Bad Times at the El Royale opened in theaters this fall to muted reception. The film had everything going for it: a star-studded cast including Jeff Bridges, Chris Hemsworth, Dakota Johnson, Jon Hamm, and Cynthia Erivo, a rising director following up his acclaimed debut feature, a seedy neo-noir thriller premise. But audiences didn’t check in for Drew Goddard‘s Bad Times at the El Royale.

Now, before we could finish unpacking why this movie fizzled, Bad Times at the El Royale is making its way to home video. With a digital release already out, 20th Century Fox advertises the upcoming Blu-ray release with an extended Bad Times at the El Royale clip.

Bad Times at the El Royale Review

Drew Goddard’s Bad Times At The El Royale is Tarantino Lite, but not as an insult. Crooked paths collide in the heart of Lake Tahoe’s hospitality crossroads. Drifters clutch onto secrets – in addition to the hotel’s own chequered history – and that’s expected, but buildup material is often more exciting than any elongated payoff. For a twisty border-straddling government conspiracy thriller, Goddard plays it a wee bit safe. Maybe another character stereotype or two could have livened the party up? As is, unsavory room renters are mere vessels for Vietnam war rhetoric and an inevitable gyration by virtue of Chris Hemsworth’s always-unbuttoned Abercrombie model look.

Top priority for a seedy hotel noir chiller, it appears? Read More »

bad times at the el royale featurette

It’s clear from the trailers so far that Bad Times at the El Royale is going to be loaded with twists and surprises. A new Bad Times at the El Royale plays the mystery factory up considerably, as the cast and crew vaguely talk about how wild and crazy everything is…without giving anything away. Watch the Bad Times at the El Royale featurette below.

Bad Times at the El Royale interviews

In June, I visited Lake Tahoe, California to attend an early press day for Bad Times at the El Royale, a new crime thriller from writer/director Drew Goddard (The Cabin in the Woods). That’s the setting for the new film, a mystery that unfolds in 1969 and centers on a run-down motel on the state line between California and Nevada. That duality is an integral part of the movie – characters aren’t always what they seem, and their shaky allegiances can switch sides in an instant when things go wrong (and naturally, things go very wrong).

During the junket, I jumped in a small boat and was taxied out to a yacht on Lake Tahoe, where I interviewed Goddard about why surveillance plays a large part in his movies, how he makes movies that reveal more layers on multiple viewings, and more. I also had the chance to speak with stars Jon Hamm, Dakota Johnson, and Jeff Bridges about the details in Goddard’s script, how the setting informed their physicality, and a lot more. Read More »
