Video: It might not be at Avengers: Infinity War levels, but Drew Pearce’s new sci-fi crime flick Hotel Artemis has a big cast of characters, and the movie knows it might be hard to figure out who’s who. Luckily, the latest trailer is here to shine a spotlight on all the cuddly criminals checking in for the night.

The retro-style trailer for Hotel Artemis profiles each main actor in the film as well as what parts they’re playing. As pointed out by /Film, it’s a tribute to a trailer for the 1975 film Nashville, which famously boasted a 26-character cast (including Artemis co-star Jeff Goldblum). The nod works in more ways than one. As Pearce previously told us, Hotel Artemis is a throwback to films that Pearce loved when he was a kid, so it makes sense that the trailer (and film) would give off a retro vibe.

Hotel Artemis comes out in the US June 8. An Australian release date has not yet been announced.
