If you haven’t heard the good news, Brad Pitt is out and about, gracing us with his presence in a new action movie, Bullet Train. Directed by David Leitch, the film hit theaters on August 5, starring the also-great Brian Tyree Henry, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, and music superstar Bad Bunny. In Bullet Train, Pitt plays an assassin named Ladybug, who has to fight his way through his enemies aboard a Japanese bullet train.
Sounds like a must-watch, right? Well, it depends who you ask. Bullet Train hasn’t been the biggest hit with critics, receiving a 54 percent on Rotten Tomatoes, as well as a less-than-stellar review from your friends at Esquire. That said, Bullet Train has proved to be an entertaining watch for viewers, receiving a much higher audience score, which currently sits at 77 percent. If you’re feeling like you just want to see the movie and judge for yourself, there’s only one place you can do it, for now.
Bullet Train, of course, hit theaters just last week, so you’ll have to snag a ticket if you want to board this Pitt outing. Sadly, gone are the early-pandemic days where you can see almost every major release on demand. If you can wait a few months, we do have good news. Because of a partnership between Sony and Netflix, viewers can expect to eventually watch the studio’s films on the streaming service after its time in theaters is up. This happened most recently with Uncharted, which hit Netflix late week after a February theatrical debut.
Unfortunately, this means that you shouldn’t expect to watch Bullet Train at home until late 2022, at the earliest. Maybe simply viewing these Brad Pitt Fits™ will tide you over until then.
