Bad Times at the El Royale (2018)

Directed by Drew Goddard


In 1959, a fugitive robber Felix O'Kelly (Nick Offerman) stashes loot from a heist gone wrong beneath the floor boards of The El Royale, a run-down hotel that sits on the border between California and Nevada, filled with secret passageways, two way mirrors and each room bugged with recording devices. A decade on, it soon becomes a seedy battleground when seven strangers; a dubious cleric (Jeff Bridges), a soul singer (Cynthia Erivo), a bogus traveling salesman (Jon Hamm) and two sisters (Dakota Johnson and Cailee Spaeny) on the run from a cult. Each one catered for by the lonely multitasked manager (Lewis Pullman), a closet junkie, tormented by his tragic military past. Then there's the mysterious, charismatic and lethal Billy Lee (Chris Hemsworth) out searching along with his followers for his missing members; all of them converging on a fateful night for one last shot at redemption before everything goes wrong.


  1. The El Royale is based on the famous Cal Neva Resort and Casino that was once owned by Frank Sinatra.
  2. Chris Hemsworth had to lose 25-30 lbs of muscle weight immediately after Avengers: Infinity War (2018) wrapped to star in this film.
  3. Drew Goddard's process of selling the script was under heavy secrecy, only sending it to top studio execs. Potential buyers had to read it on a tablet and then return it when finished.
  4. Russell Crowe was originally cast in a role. He eventually dropped out and was replaced by Jon Hamm.
