A hot new trailer for the very noir-looking thriller Bad Times at the El Royale has just hit.

The first trailer looked good, and this one certainly hasn’t dampened our enthusiasm for the flick that’s been written and directed by Joss Whedon’s mate Drew Goddard – who also wrote The Martian as well as penning and directing the very fab The Cabin in the Woods.

The story sees seven strangers, each with a secret, meeting at Lake Tahoe’s El Royale, a rundown hotel with a shady past that straddles two state lines. Over just one night, they’ll each have a last shot at redemption – before everything goes to hell (well, that’s what the blurb says).

As you may have gleaned from the shot above, Chris Hemsworth is one of our seven stars, sharing the screen with the likes of Jeff Bridges, Jon Hamm, Dakota Johnson, Nick Offerman and Lewis Pullman.

Bad Times at the El Royale is set to hit Aussie cinemas on October 11 (yep, somewhere along the line it sneaked forward a week).
