Female agents from around the globe join forces to save the world in the upcoming movie The 355 and the action-packed trailer has been released!

Jessica Chastain, Penelope Cruz, Diane Kruger, Lupita Nyong’o, and Fan Bingbing star in the new movie, which was directed by Dark Phoenix‘s Simon Kinberg.

Here is the synopsis: When a top-secret weapon falls into mercenary hands, wild card CIA agent Mason “Mace” Brown (Chastain) will need to join forces with rival badass German agent Marie (Kruger), former MI6 ally and cutting-edge computer specialist Khadijah (Nyong’o), and skilled Colombian psychologist Graciela (Cruz) on a lethal, breakneck mission to retrieve it, while also staying one-step ahead of a mysterious woman, Lin Mi Sheng (Bingbing), who is tracking their every move. As the action rockets around the globe from the cafes of Paris to the markets of Morocco to the wealth and glamour of Shanghai, the quartet of women will forge a tenuous loyalty that could protect the world—or get them killed.

Also starring in the movie are Sebastian Stan and Edgar Ramirez.

Jennifer Lopez, Laura Dern, Lupita Nyong'o & More Cover THR's Actress Roundtable Issue

Jennifer Lopez joins Scarlett Johansson, Renee Zellweger, Lupita Nyong’o, Laura Dern and Awkwafina on the cover of The Hollywood Reporter‘s annual Actress Roundtable issue, available now!

Here’s what the stars had to share with the mag…

Jennifer on a director asking her to take her top off: “He wanted to see my boobs. And I was like, ‘We’re not on set.’ And I said no, I stood up for myself. But it was so funny because I remember being so panicked in the moment. And by the way, there was a costume designer in the room with me. So there was another woman in the room and he says this and I said no. Luckily a little bit of the Bronx came out, and I was like, ‘I don’t have to show you my — No. On the set, you see them.’”

Lupita on inclusion in Hollywood: “This is a time where there is a concerted effort to consider diversity and inclusion. What I really want is for it to not be a fad, not be a trend. Right now it’s really dope and cool and on trend to work with women and underrepresented groups, but the moment of maturity in the industry is when it is just the norm, you know?”

Laura on hotel room auditions: “I started auditioning at 10, 11 years old. I listen to the next generation, saying, ‘People used to have auditions in hotel rooms?’ I’m like, ‘Yeah, every single time, waiting in the lobby of a hotel and the director is waiting for you in the room to have a chemistry read.’”
