Bullet Train screens at the Palace Cinemas in Byron Bay this week.

A former and unlucky assassin codenamed ‘Ladybug’ is determined to do his job peacefully after one too many gigs has gone off the rails. Fate, however, may have other plans as his latest mission puts him on a collision course with lethal adversaries from around the globe – all with connected yet conflicting objectives – on the world’s fastest train.

Starring Brad Pitt as an assassin who has to deal with enemies, the film is directed by David Leitch; based on a screenplay by Zak Olkewicz that adapts the Japanese novel Maria Beetle (published in English as Bullet Train) by Kōtarō Isaka. 

Ladybug starts work with a newly positive attitude. He is tasked by his handler, Maria Beetle, to collect a briefcase aboard the bullet train travelling from Tokyo to Kyoto after her normal contact, Carver, is forced to call out owing to illness. Unbeknownst to Ladybug, three other killers are onboard: hitmen brothers, Tangerine and Lemon, and deceptively innocent schoolgirl The Prince.
