Though it’s sure to be confused, Terminal is not a reboot of Steven Spielberg’s most insipid Tom Hanks vehicle. And while it sees Mike Myers go up against assassins Margot Robbie and Simon Pegg, it’s thankfully not the long-threatened Austin Powers 4 either. It’s stranger than either of those things.
The feature writing-directing debut of Vaughn Stein, the film “follows two assassins with a sinister mission, a fatally ill teacher, an enigmatic janitor, and a waitress with a double life. Murderous consequences unravel as their lives meet at the hands of a criminal mastermind wanting revenge.” Per this first teaser, it’s apparently also drawing some sort of inspiration from Alice in Wonderland.
We’ll find out for sure that Myers isn’t actually an Eastern European trapped in an airport when Terminal hits theaters May 11.
