Bullet Train Plot: What Will be the Plot of the Bullet Train?
Bullet Train is aptly set on a high-speed Bullet Train in Japan. It travels from Tokyo to Morioka, with a few stops along the way. There are five assassins on board to take the journey, and each one of them has their own assignment they need to complete. What they don't know is that all of their assignments are mere parts of a bigger plan.
As they get nearer their destination, and the assassins all make their own way to get their kills, they learn what is really happening. The assassins now have to fight to survive the train ride and reach their destination, where all the answers can be found.
Here is a synopsis for Bullet Train from Sony Entertainment:
In Bullet Train, Brad Pitt stars as Ladybug, an unlucky assassin determined to do his job peacefully after one too many gigs gone off the rails. Fate, however, may have other plans, as Ladybug's latest mission puts him on a collision course with lethal adversaries from around the globe—all with connected, yet conflicting, objectives—on the world's fastest train. The end of the line is just the beginning in this non-stop thrill-ride through modern-day Japan from David Leitch, the director of Deadpool 2.
