Fun First Trailer for Action Film 'Hotel Artemis' Featuring Jodie Foster "I thought this place was a myth." Global Road Entertainment has debuted an official trailer for an action film titled Hotel Artemis, the feature directorial debut of screenwriter Drew Pearce (Iron Man 3, M:I - Rogue Nation) who also wrote the script for this. Set in riot-torn, near-future Los Angeles, Jodie Foster plays "The Nurse", a nurse who runs a secret, members-only emergency room for criminals. This is similar to the hotel from the John Wick movies, but clearly much more about patching up and healing people than providing them with more services.

'The Glass Castle' Review: Memoir Becomes Melodrama, With a Wasted Brie Larson Performance Destin Daniel Cretton’s Short Term 12 was one of the best movies of 2013, and remains one of the most surprising indie dramas of the past several years. It’s the film that finally put Brie Larson on the film industry’s radar, charting a path towards an eventual Oscar win. One of the greatest strengths of that film is how delicately it unpacks the day-to-day trauma and struggle of neglected teens living at a group home. With that in mind, Cretton’s latest film The Glass Castle sounded especially promising – an adaptation about a dysfunctional family told through the eyes of a young girl.
