Foster runs a 22-year-old, secret, members-only hospital for criminals in a 2028-set Los Angeles that's torn by riots. The cast also includes Sterling K. Brown, Sofia Boutella, Jeff Goldblum, Brian Tyree Henry, Jenny Slate, Zachary Quinto, Charlie Day, and Dave Bautista.
"You might want to burn some scented candles because it smells like somebody died," Day tells her at one point. "Somebody did," she responds evenly.
At one point, Foster's seen dashing down a hallway and muttering, "It's a rough night at the Artemis."
But amid the chaos, Hotel Artemis appears to be a bit of a sanctuary. "This place was built on two things trust and rules," Foster asserts.
Hotel Artemis marks Foster's first acting project since 2013's Elysium. The plot has been kept under wraps, but appears to involve Brown and Boutella's characters dealing with some kind of handheld destructive device.
Goldblum portrays his usual skeptic, asking Foster at one point, "Where would you be without rule breakers?"
He also references a line from The Doors' 1968 song "Five to One," saying from a jail cell, "I guess my ballroom days are over, baby."
Drew Pearce, whose writing credits include Iron Man 3 and Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation, directed from his own script in his feature debut. Hotel Artemis will be released in the US in June, an Australian date is not yet confirmed.
