Brad Pitt teases his upcoming ‘Bullet Train’ movie.
The highly anticipated film will be released this summer, with the first trailer dropping next week.
In what could almost pass for a real commercial for a train line, Pitt narrates a video for the fictional Nippon Speed Line (NSL).

The clip promises “an unforgettable experience” with panoramic views of Japan. It seems like the real deal until it ends with a bloody Pitt sitting aboard the bullet train.
“You put peace in the world, you get peace back,” Pitt says in the voiceover.
As pointed out Collider, Nippon Speed Line’s website offers a countdown to March 2 when the trailer will be released. NSL is also managed by Columbia Tristar Marketing Group, the same company that handles the marketing of the Columbia Pictures studio of “Bullet Train”.
“Bullet Train” is based on the novel Maria Bitoru about five assassins on a bullet train traveling between Tokyo and Morioka. They each discover that their missions are linked to each other.
