Universal Pictures has released the trailer for the upcoming espionage thriller The 355, which features a dream team of formidable female stars coming together on their quest to get a top-secret weapon out of mercenary hands.
Directed by Simon Kinberg from a script which he has co-written with Theresa Rebeck, the movie revolves around wild card CIA agent Mason “Mace” Brown (Oscar-nominated actress Jessica Chastain) as she joins forces with rival badass German agent Marie (Diane Kruger), former MI6 ally and cutting-edge computer specialist Khadijah (Oscar winner Lupita Nyong’o), and skilled Colombian psychologist Graciela (Penélope Cruz) on a lethal mission to retrieve the top-secret weapon, while also staying one-step ahead of a mysterious woman, Lin Mi Sheng (Fan Bingbing), who is tracking their every move.
According to the official synopsis, “as the action rockets around the globe from the cafes of Paris to the markets of Morocco to the wealth and glamour of Shanghai, the quartet of women will forge a tenuous loyalty that could protect the world – or get them killed”.
The cast also includes Sebastian Stan and Edgar Ramirez.
The trailer, which gives viewers a glimpse at the action-packed scenes included in the movie, is scored by the 2009 single Run This Town by American rapper Jay-Z, featuring Rihanna and Kanye West.
The 355 is coming soon in cinemas according to the trailer.
