Hard to believe it has been a full year since we had a trailer for spy thriller The 355, a film that boasts an incredible lineup of women we want to see kick some ass. Oscar nominee Jessica Chastain is joined by Oscar winners Lupita Nyong’o and Penelope Cruz, along with Diane Kruger and Fan Bingbing in a story of female spies brought together to save the world.
The new footage reveals a ton of globe-trotting action, plus dude co-stars Sebastian Stan and Edgar Ramirez, so this movie is full of heavy hitters. Behind the camera is Simon Kinberg, the X-Men franchise vet who previously worked with Chastain on Dark Phoenix. He also co-wrote the script with Theresa Rebeck, known for her work on NBC’s Smash.
Here’s the synopsis: When a top-secret weapon falls into mercenary hands, wild card CIA agent Mason “Mace” Brown (Oscar®-nominated actress Jessica Chastain) will need to join forces with rival badass German agent Marie (Diane Kruger, In the Fade), former MI6 ally and cutting-edge computer specialist Khadijah (Oscar® winner Lupita Nyong’o), and skilled Colombian psychologist Graciela (Oscar® winner Penélope Cruz) on a lethal, breakneck mission to retrieve it, while also staying one step ahead of a mysterious woman, Lin Mi Sheng (Bingbing Fan, X-Men: Days of Future Past), who is tracking their every move. As the action rockets around the globe from the cafes of Paris to the markets of Morocco to the opulent auction houses of Shanghai, the quartet of women will forge a tenuous loyalty that could protect the world—or get them killed. The film also stars Édgar Ramirez (The Girl on the Train) and Sebastian Stan (Avengers: Endgame).
The 355 opens on January 7th 2022.
