We saw the The 355 last month, but to see the full result we are going to have to wait. 'The 355' will take a long time to hit theaters. The spy thriller with Jessica Chastain, Lupita Nyong'o, Penélope Cruz, Fan Bingbing and Diane Kruger has been delayed a year, setting its new release date to January 2022. Thus, the film directed by Simon Kinberg is the last film that moves its date on the calendar due to the corona.
Variety The 355 is the one who has reported that Universal has passed the initial date of January 15, 2021 to January 14, 2022.
The change in the release date of this film follows a series of delays by the largest studios in Hollywood, as they face the closure of theaters and the increase in cases of coronavirus in the United States. Warner Bros. recently set a day-and-date release for 'Wonder Woman 1984', essentially vacating the winter theatrical release schedule, while Disney has pushed back all of its winter movies.
Universal has been at the forefront of these delays, moving the ninth installment of its sequel 'Fast and Furious' to mid-2021 and postponing 'Jurassic World: Dominion' to June 2022.
"The 355" is an eye-catching heist thriller based on a script the director wrote with Theresa Rebeck, and was fetched by Universal for $ 20 million after its 2018 Cannes premiere. The film tells of a spy team internationals uniting to stop a world-threatening event called 355 in a nod to historic spies. Sebastian Stan and Edgar Ramirez also star in the plot. Jessica Chastain is also producing with Kelly Carmichael through her Freckle Films banner, and Kinberg is also commissioned through genre films with Richard Hewitt (Bohemian Rhapsody) serving as executive producer.
When a top-secret weapon falls into the hands of mercenaries, wildcard CIA agent Mason "Mace" Brown (Chastain) must join forces with German agent Marie (Kruger), former MI6 ally and avant-garde IT specialist Khadijah (Nyong ' o), and expert Colombian psychologist Graciela (Cruz) on a lethal and dizzying mission to get him back, while staying one step ahead of a mysterious woman, Lin Mi Sheng (Bingbing), who is tracking his every move.
The title of the film refers to the code name of the first female spy in the United States, who acted during the American Revolution (1765-1783). As told in the trailer by the character of Jessica Chastain, no one knows her true identity, but her legacy has been handed down over time and therefore here are the "disciples" of the 2000s: the plot of 'The 355' tells of four agents of as many nations (USA, Great Britain, Germany and Colombia) who join forces when a top secret weapon falls into the wrong hands, thereby threatening to bring the world to the brink of destruction. A fifth woman, a Chinese spy, follows their moves step by step and without revealing what her intentions are. However, it appears that she will eventually join the group to pursue a common purpose.
'The 355' is written and directed by Simon Kinberg, who has the 'X-Men' saga as a screenwriter and is on his second feature film as a director after 'X-Men: Dark Phoenix' (2019). Joining him in writing was Theresa Rebeck, who boasts two Emmy Award nominations for her work on the crime TV series 'NYPD Blue'. Kinberg and Rebeck's intention was to make a spy thriller that echoes the spirit of the 'Mission: Impossible' and 'James Bond' franchises.
Jessica Chastain, Diane Kruger, Penelope Cruz, and Lupita Nyong’o join forces to save the world. They are a team of 355 of the most professional agents to push down the bad guys with fast-paced action across continents.
All you need to know about The 355's action is what you really need, so here's what you need: when a top-secret weapon gets into the hands of mercenaries, a CIA agent, Mason “Mace” Brown (Jessica Chastain) with a rival malevolent German agent, Marie (Diane Kruger), a former MI6 ally and cutting-edge computer specialist, Khadijah (Lupita Nyong'o) and trained Colombian psychologist Graciela (Penélope Cruz) must face a deadly, neck-breaking mission to retrieve it. while taking a step ahead of a mysterious woman, Lin Mi Sheng (Bingbing Fan), who follows their every move.
While the action is flying around the world from cafes in Paris to markets in Morocco to lavish auction houses in Shanghai, the women’s quartet is becoming more and more polished, which either saves the world or loses everything to them. The film also features Edgar Ramirez and Sebastian Stan.
The film 355, made by the director of Theresa Rebeck and Simon Kinberg, will be available in Hungarian cinemas from January 13!
The film therefore surfs on the feminist turn taken by Hollywood in recent years. After Ghostbusters, Ocean's 8 or even Queens, it's The 355's turn to try their luck. Hoping that Simon Kinberg will succeed in convincing more than the works cited above.
Universal has just unveiled the new trailer for The 355. These new images promise a solid action film, carried by a rather classic spy plot, which borrows its operation from films like Jason Bourne. The feature film obviously seems to be a calibrated proposition, like a classic consumer product aimed at attracting as many people as possible.
The action scenes however offer a pleasant reading of the choreographies, and one is entitled to expect some impressive action sequences. The film will obviously base its promotion on its 5-star and almost entirely female cast. It must be said that a meeting with Jessica Chastain, Pénélope Cruz and Diane Kruger, has something to attract attention. Simon Kinberg's film is due in cinemas on January 19.
