Oscar-nominee Margot Robbie is a front-and-center stunner in Terminal, a new thriller that’s been described as “neo-noir” but could just as equally be called neon-noir, as revealed in the film’s first trailer. This new video shows off the film’s visuals, which remind me of both Nicolas Winding Refn‘s neon-light obsession and of Guy Ritchie‘s love affair with the London underworld, both literally and metaphorically. That should be enough to pique your interest.
But beyond that, even with the help of the short and sweet synopsis, Terminal‘s plot remains a bit murky. It’s an ensemble effort, though Robbie is a standout amidst the boys’ club, and no one’s ultimate goal is completely understood since each character appears to be playing their own version of the same deadly game. It’ll be interesting to see how this one shakes out in just over a month’s time.
Also starring Simon Pegg, Dexter Fletcher, Mike Myers, and Max Irons, writer-director Vaughn Stein makes his feature directorial debut in Terminal, which will hit U.S. theaters May 11th, courtesy of RLJE Films.

Here’s the official synopsis for Terminal:
“In the dark heart of a sprawling, anonymous city, Terminal follows the twisting tales of two assassins carrying out a sinister mission, a teacher battling a fatal illness, an enigmatic janitor and a curious waitress leading a dangerous double life.
