20th Century Fox has released a batch of new posters for its star-studded crime mystery thriller film “Bad Times at the El Royale.” This includes the film’s stylish one-sheet and seven of it’s shadowy characters. See the character posters below.

There’s Jeff Bridges as a down-on-his-luck priest Father Daniel Flynn (“I’m not really a priest,” his character says on the trailer,) Cynthia Erivo as down-on-her-luck singer Darlene, Dakota Johnson as gun-toting Emily Summerspring, Cailee Spaeny as Emily’s younger sister, Jon Hamm as vacuum cleaner salesman Laramie Seymour Sullivan, Lewis Pullman as a young concierge at the hotel welcoming the guests and Chris Hemsworth as the often shirtless cult leader Billy Lee.

Just like the film’s trailer, the posters are atmospheric, stylish and intriguing, never fully giving away the plot. But it looks like not everyone in the film is who they seem or say they are. Trouble is definitely in the horizon in the El Royale.

Drew Goddard directed and wrote “Bad Times at the El Royale,” as well as produced it with Jeremy Latcham. The film is the first directorial effort by Goddard since 2012’s horror comedy “The Cabin in the Woods” which also featured Hemsworth. Goddard wrote boxoffice hit and critically acclaimed “The Martian” for which he was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Adapted Screenplay.

“Seven strangers, each with a secret to bury, meet at Lake Tahoe’s El Royale, a rundown hotel with a dark past. Over the course of one fateful night, everyone will have a last shot at redemption… before everything goes to hell.”

“Bad Times at the El Royale” will hit theaters on October 12.
