In the film’s first official trailer, only Bullock’s lips could be seen as she talked on the phone with Pitt. 

The new trailer opens as Pitt is seen walking down the street of Japan before making a phone call. 

The star sported shaggy hair and a light beard  and was dressed in a green trench coat with a bucket hat.

Bullock’s dark-manicured nails are seen typing on the keyboard of her computer before she answers the phone.  

‘Deer Creek International Business Solutions, how can I help you?’ she asks as she takes a sip of coffee.

'Remember the suicidal bellboy?' Pitt asks as he tries to remind Bullock of his bad luck

‘I am ready,’ Pitt declares.  

Bullock replies, ‘Well that’s great, Ladybug.’

Pitt looks confused as he questions the moniker, saying, ‘Ladybug?

‘Your new operational name,’ Bullock says. 

Pitt laughs as he says sarcastically, ‘I see what you are doing, Ladybug’s supposed to be lucky.’

He then steps off a curb into a puddle and is almost hit by a truck.

Pitt closes his eyes and takes a deep breath as Bullock tells him,’You don’t have bad luck.’

‘Really?’ he asks doubtfully.

‘You drove him to the hospital,’ Bullock says consolingly in a voiceover while Pitt tells the bellboy, ‘Hang in there buddy

‘And he didn’t die,’ she adds.

Bullock is seen sitting in an office as she tells him, ‘You wanted simple for your first job back. It doesn’t get simpler.’

Pitt is then seen dashing onto the train and grabbing a silver briefcase.  

British assassin Tangerine (Taylor-Johnson) and his associate Lemon (Henry) stare at a rack on the train as Henry says, ‘We need to find the person that took that case.’

‘This is too easy,’ Pitt says as he walks down the aisle of the train and takes out his cell phone.

‘Shit,’ he says to which Bullock asks him, ‘What?’

‘Remember those two wackos from the Bolivian job?’ he asks her. 

The trailer cuts to a scene in which Taylor-Johnson and Henry are seen wearing hazmat suits and goggles in a jungle. In another scene, they don ponchos and wield katanas in an alley.

‘The twins?’ she asks.

Pitt peers through a window as the two walk down the aisle and replies, ‘Yeah, not so sure they’re twins.’

‘Get off the train,’ she commands while Pitt is shown running down the aisle with the briefcase under his arm.

Bad Bunny is then seen taking off his sunglasses before plunging a knife into Pitt’s shoulder.

‘I will never stop coming for you,’ Bad Bunny tells him to which Pitt replies disbelievingly, ‘What?’

They engage in hand to hand combat before the scene cuts to the train speeding along the tracks. 

‘I missed my stop,’ Pitt tells Bullock while walking through a door of the train. 

‘There’s something else going on here,’ she tells him as she sits in a darkened room surrounded by bars.

Pitt takes a seat in front of Henry and says, ‘Hi.’

After Henry looks at him curiously, Pitt asks, ‘You don’t remember me?’

Henry shakes his head and replies, ‘You look like every white homeless man I’ve ever seen.’

'You look like every white homeless man I've ever seen,' Henry tells Pitt

‘You look like every white homeless man I’ve ever seen,’ Henry tells Pitt

‘Really? You don’t remember me–’ Pitt says as he takes his glasses off before Henry grabs his arm and pulls it under the table. Pitt is propelled forward and his head slams into the table with a loud smack.

A woman puts her finger over her lips and says, ‘Shh!’ as a light then comes on that reads ‘Quiet Car’.

Henry laughs at Pitt, who reaches forward and slams the screen of his foe’s laptop closed on his fingers.

Henry screeches in pain and covers his mouth with his hand as the woman says, ‘Shhh!’ once again. 

Hand to hand combat: Pitt is then seen battling Hornet (Zazie Beetz), an American assassin who is disguised as a train crew member.

Pitt is then seen battling Hornet (Zazie Beetz), an American assassin who is disguised as a train crew member. 

‘Get off at the next stop,’ Bullock tells him in a voiceover.

‘It seems so easy when you say it,’ Pitt replies as Beetz is shown pummeling him and putting him in a headlock.

She brandishes a needle and tells him, ‘One little prick from this and you know what happens?’  

Scary: She brandishes a needle and tells him, 'One little prick from this and you know what happens?'

Scary: She brandishes a needle and tells him, ‘One little prick from this and you know what happens?’

‘Yes,’ Pitt responds weakly. 

 Beetz continues, ‘You blood congeals, clogging your brain’s–’ before Pitt cuts her off and yells, ‘I said yes!’

He flips her over and escapes the headlock before pressing his face up against the window of the train. 

‘Ah, sh**balls!’ he exclaims.  

King, who plays British assassin Prince, is seen dressed in all pink as she sits on the train.

'There's something else going on here,' she tells him as she sits in a darkened room surrounded by bars

‘Are you going to want to hear the whole story?’ she asks Japanese assassin Yuichi Kimura (Andrew Koji).

Pitt is then heard asking, ‘What’s waiting for us in Kyoto?’ 

Elder (Hiroyuki Sanada) replies,’The White Death, and his army of assassins.’

The trailer cuts a fiery scene as a man with a bloody face walks in a courtyard with a group of assassins fighting around him.   

Taylor-Johnson is shown on the train as he talks to Henry. The scene is intercut with shots of the White Death’s assassins, the burning courtyard and a fight in the snow.

While gesticulating with his hands, Henry says, ‘There’s a solo psychotic leader with largest criminal organization on the planet shoved right inside of–’ 

The trailer than cuts to a bare-chested Japanese assassin slamming his elbow into the face of another assassin as they fight in the snowy courtyard.

A disheveled-looking Pitt is seen sitting in a train chair with a scraped up and bruised face.

‘I don’t see the White Death letting any of us off this train.’ Pitt says. 

'I don't see the White Death letting any of us off this train.' Pitt says

‘I don’t see the White Death letting any of us off this train.’ Pitt says

‘We need to come up with a plan,’ Pitt says. 

Henry and Taylor-Johnson are seen walking by a warehouse and taking on a group of Japanese assassins.

Pitt is seen on his knees with a sword tip pressed to his neck before the trailer cuts to Taylor-Johnson walking by the train tracks.

He throws a cigarette and an explosion goes off that throws Pitt back into the train car.

The trailer concludes with a scene of Pitt squaring off against a person who is dressed up a white cartoon cat.  

‘Sorry, buddy,’ Pitt says as he tries to grab the briefcase out of the cat’s hands.

After the cat resists, Pitt punches it in the face. He runs off with the briefcase as the cat lets out a soft ‘Mew’.
