The new trailer for “The 355” opens by revealing the secret behind the movie’s title, as Chastain’s CIA agent Mace Brown explains a fellow spy (Stan) that “Agent 355” was the designated code of a female spy who served under George Washington. From that point on, the viewer is treated to a rapid introduction of several international superstar agents, including Marie (Kruger), Khadijah (Nyong’o), Graciela (Cruz), and Lin Mi Sheng (Bingbing), who team up to vanquish a villain who aims to plunge the world into war and chaos.
The trailer contains a fair amount of action that showcases each character’s specific skillset, and highlights the movie’s increasingly personal stakes, as well as the team’s initial struggle to trust each other. However, the very last seconds show that whoever they’re up against will be in massive trouble, as the trailer returns to its very first scene … only now, all five women face Stan’s character, and you find out they’ve decided to call their team The 355 to honor that first female espionage expert.
The trailer takes care to avoid spilling the beans on any major plot points beyond the basic premise, so the viewer still doesn’t know just what twists and excitement the movie has in store — but this new trailer for “The 355” sure makes the movie seem like a must-watch.
