Watch the New Hotel Artemis Trailer!

Global Road has unveiled the first trailer for Hotel Artemis, the crime thriller toplined by Jodie Foster and This Is Us' Sterling K. Brown. Foster also raised some eyebrows late previous year, when she accused superhero tentpoles of "ruining" the filmgoing habits of Americans.

"Hotel Artemis" is set in near-future Los Angeles at a members-only hospital for criminals. Only instead of offering a good night's sleep and a nice meal, it's a secret emergency hospital run by Jodie Foster's "The Nurse". Now, the owner of said vault is coming to collect, and they're not so hot on abiding by the rules that "Nurse" has put in place to maintain order in her hospital.

Alongside Brown, Golblum, Henry, and Foster, the film also stars Sofia Boutella, Jenny Slate, Zachary Quinto, Charlie Day, and Dave Bautista.

At first glance, Hotel Artemis seems like a thinly-veiled John Wick knock-off, basing its premise around a strictly regulated hotel that caters to the criminally inclined - much like the Continental hotels in those pulpy Wick flicks.

Donovan Mitchell returned to Game 1 after getting X-ray on hurt foot
We'll get to see him in the NBA Playoffs beginning this weekend. "I just stubbed my toe", Mitchell said. "And then he went back". Mitchell left the game briefly for about five minutes to have X-rays taken on his left pinky toe and returned shortly after.

The film was written and directed by Drew Pearce.

Comparisons to John Wick will no doubt be made here, as the setup of Hotel Artemis feels quite similar to the network of hotels that populate the John Wick universe.

The movie, which is produced by Marc Platt, Adam Siegel and The Ink Factory's Stephen Cornwell and Simon Cornwell, hits theaters June 8.
