Preview, Bridges, Hamm, Hemsworth and Dakota Johnson have “Bad Times at the El Royale”

Saw this as a preview for “Hotel Artemis” last night and was at least a little intrigued.

A Golden Age of Reno/Vegas period piece with Jeff Bridges as a preacher, Chris Hemsworth as someone straight outta Hell, just two of “seven strangers with secrets to bury” at a state-line hotel with a weird, twisted vibe.

“Martian” and “The Good Place” screenwriter Drew Goddard wrote and directed this, Nick Offerman is in it. Feels like an over-reach, reads like a glossy period piece version of this one (So many movies about secretive strangers in hotels, pick your own.)/

“Bad Times at the El Royale” opens Oct. 5.
