Lupita plays a leading role in the blockbuster, The 355.
The 355, a Hollywood blockbuster movie by Universal Pictures was initially set to open in theaters on January 15, 2021. But like many other release dates, this movie’s was pushed back by 12 months and will now premiere in January 2022. The ongoing pandemic has been to blame. It hasn’t been feasible to release the movie during this period since movie theatres around the world have been shut down.
The 355 is a spy film that follows three international female agents on a mission. The mission is to retrieve a top-secret weapon that falls into mercenary hands. They have to complete the mission while staying a step ahead of a mysterious woman who’s tracking their every move.
It has a fantastic female-led cast that includes Lupita Nyong’o, Jessica Chastain, Diane Kruger and Fan BIngBing. The film is directed by Simon Kinberg, who is also known for his work on X-Men films, Fantastic Four, Deadpool and Elysium. One interesting fact about the film is that its title is derived from ‘Agent 355’; a female spy for the Patriots during the American Revolution.
Excited about the new release date, Lupita tweeted “Work together or die alone. Watch the new trailer for The 355, in Theatres January 7”
