Hot on the heels of Academy Award nominated drama I, Tonya, Margot Robbie is back for a completely different role in Terminal that would give Harley Quinn the creeps. A teaser trailer was released last week that featured Robbie's femme fatale character walking through a landscape that looks like Blade Runner 2049 envisioned as a Quentin Tarantino movie. Not much info was given with the teaser for Terminal, but the first full-length trailer offers a lot more substance, and it looks pretty cool.
Margot Robbie has found her niche playing unhinged characters and in Terminal, she has an "unquenchable bloodlust for darkness." The film, which also stars Simon Pegg, Mike Myers, Max Irons, Dexter Fletcher, has an even darker vibe than the teaser trailer led on with some elements of dark humor as well. Vaughn Stein wrote the screenplay and is making his directorial feature debut with the project. The official synopsis for Terminal reads as follows.
"In the dark heart of a sprawling, anonymous city, Terminal follows the twisting tales of two assassins carrying out a sinister mission, a teacher battling a fatal illness, an enigmatic janitor and a curious waitress leading a dangerous double life. Murderous consequences unravel in the dead of night as their lives all intertwine at the hands of a mysterious criminal mastermind hell-bent on revenge."
Throughout the Terminal trailer, we hear the ominous voice of a character named Mr. Franklin. Franklin is offering a lot of money to have someone killed. It's not immediately clear how Margot Robbie fits into the storyline, but it's clear that she has her own thing going right from the start. She's definitely there to stir things up between the characters, which is intriguing, especially since we see so many different looks for her.
Another aspect of Margot Robbie's character that is evident straight away from the Terminal trailer is that she has a screw loose, which is as previously mentioned, is something that Robbie has excelled at over the years. There's even a few hints that her character might have more than one personality as seen by her different looks and even voices that she uses. Sometimes she comes across as all together while other scenes show someone who is on the brink of madness.
The mystery, Terminal, opens up on May 11th. Viewers will have to wait until then to start to unravel the secrets of the film. While the first teaser left us intrigued, the new full-length trailer for Terminal leaves us with a lot more questions than anything. How will Mike Myers and Simon Pegg work off each other after being pit against one another? We'll just have to wait and see, but the casting looks perfect.
