A new trailer of The 355, Simon Kinberg’s new action movie, has been released by Universal Pictures, featuring several famous female cast members such as Oscar nominee Jessica Chastain and Oscar winners Lupita Nyong’o and Penélope Cruz. The movie was initially scheduled to be released in 2021, however, the current pandemic has caused it to be postponed for a year. The 355 is now set to hit the box office on January 7, 2022.
You can check out The 355 trailer below. The movie features five international spies who need to cooperate to stop a cyber attack that threatens to start World War III. The trailer also reveals some of the movie’s stunning action scenes.
The movie is directed by Simon Kinberg with a script from Theresa Kinberg. In The 355, audiences can expect to see Jessica Chastain, Lupita Nyong’o, Penélope Cruz, Diane Kruger, and Bingbing Fan. It will also be joined by MCU star Sebastian Stan and Golden Globe nominee Edgar Ramírez.
The synopsis says “A dream team of formidable female stars come together in a hard-driving original approach to the globe-trotting espionage genre in The 355.” “When a top-secret weapon falls into mercenary hands, wild card CIA agent Mason “Mace” Brown will need to join forces with rival badass German agent Marie, former MI6 ally and cutting-edge computer specialist Khadijah, and skilled Colombian psychologist Graciela on a lethal, breakneck mission to retrieve it, while also staying one step ahead of a mysterious woman, Lin Mi Sheng, 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 wealth and glamour of Shanghai, the quartet of women will forge a tenuous loyalty that could protect the world—or get them killed.”
The movie’s title 355 is actually taken from one of the first spies ever in the United States during the American Revolution. This spy was also a woman, therefore, Agent 355 has become slang for a female spy in the CIA. Chastain learned this during her research for Zero Dark Thirty (2012).
The 355’s producers are Chastain and Kelly Carmichael for Chastain’s Freckle Films and Kinberg for his Genre Films. Also, its executive producers are Richard Hewitt, Esmond Ren and Wang Rui Huan.
