It is possible that you are just finding out about the breakup Bullet train star Andrew KojiBut that doesn’t mean the working actor hasn’t been on the fringes of big stardom for a while. In fact, he had a leading role in a movie that flopped so badly that it ended the attempted reboot of the GI Joe franchise.

The 34-year-old actor, who admits the script of Snake Eyes: GI Joe Origins it was “horrible,” he said entertainment weekly that even though the film flopped (it grossed less than half of its $80 million budget and far less than the estimated $160 million it needed to break even), he learned a lot from the experience.

“What I heard is that it is important to start the film as soon as possible. As soon as you get the thing, you do it because then you’re on some sort of list or have some pre-study agreement or something. So that was part of it. i actually liked robert [Schwentke], director. It’s definitely more of an actor’s director than a franchise or IP. And I guess he led to Bullet trainwhich then also led to the movie I did with John Malkovich [Seneca – On the Creation of Earthquakes]. And then, I got the independent movie that I did after that.”

Koji, of course, is experiencing a career boom thanks to Bullet train. However, the actor did share how he stays grounded to everything going on around him, including meditation, as the actor says he’s worked with “some tough people” so far in Hollywood, and knows the importance of remembering. how small you are in the big picture.

“In addition to the meditation and personal work that I do almost daily, I feel like if I really… Here’s what I’m going to say, because I’ve worked with some difficult people in my last few movies: I think it’s a choice. I think they have made the decision to believe in this. Obviously, if you became super, super famous, life would be different and hard. But I think it’s just knowing that you’re not that important, really. I don’t know. I have this appointment. This is something I recently learned, which put everything into perspective for me. I’m going to recite this for you now off the top of my head. It’s something I repeat to myself every day and I thought maybe this is what I’m going through right now to remind myself that I’m only human and we’re just a small part of all of this.”

It maintains this mentality and puts it in perspective against the reality of the physical world.

“Compared to the massive movements of heaven and earth, compared to the immensity of geological time, the greatest acts of humanity and monuments are below importance. In our egoism and our view of ourselves as the center of the universe, we imagine that our lives have some meaning and importance and place next to the stars and the mountains and the rivers. They do not. We can’t expect any true meaning in the history of the universe, but we can get to know it better and we can be a better part of it.”

Bullet train is now showing in theaters.
