Bad Times at the El Royale

Bad Times at the El Royale

In 1969, seven strangers, each with a secret to bury, meet at Lake Tahoe’s El Royale, a seedy, rundown hotel with a dark past that straddles the border between California and Nevada. Over the course of one fateful night the strangers – a cleric, a soul singer, a traveling salesman, two sisters, the manager and the mysterious Billy Lee – converge, turning the joint into a battleground, with everyone holding out for a last shot at redemption… Before everything goes to hell. Starring Jeff Bridges, Chris Hemsworth, Jon Hamm, Dakota Johnson and Cynthia Erivo.

“Drew Goddard’s BAD TIMES AT THE EL ROYALE is a noirish, hard-boiled thriller with flashes of a horror. Primarily, though, it is a statement of authorial intent.” (The New York Times)

“Smart, stylish, and packed with solid performances, BAD TIMES AT THE EL ROYALE delivers pure popcorn fun with the salty tang of social subtext.” (Rotten Tomatoes)

“This Irwin-Allen-sized B-movie mostly works thanks to Goddard’s knack for nesting-doll-style narrative compartmentalization and his talent for bringing out the best in his uniformly strong ensemble cast…” (NPR)
