Set in riot-torn, near-future Los Angeles, ‘Hotel Artemis’ follows the Nurse, who runs a secret, members-only emergency room for criminals.
Jodie Foster is a wisecracking nurse with gallows humor in the violence-laden first trailer for the near-future action-thriller “Hotel Artemis,” released on Monday.
Foster runs a 22-year-old, secret, members-only hospital for criminals in a 2028-set Los Angeles that’s torn by riots. The cast also includes Sterling K. Brown, Sofia Boutella, Jeff Goldblum, Brian Tyree Henry, Jenny Slate, Zachary Quinto, Charlie Day, and Dave Bautista.
“You might want to burn some scented candles because it smells like somebody died,” Day tells her at one point. “Somebody did,” she responds evenly.
At one point, Foster’s seen dashing down a hallway and muttering, “It’s a rough night at the Artemis.”
But amid the chaos, Hotel Artemis appears to be a bit of a sanctuary. “This place was built on two things — trust and rules,” Foster asserts.
