Other stars include Sandra Bullock, Michael Shannon and Puerto Rican rapper Bad Bunny. King plays a somewhat sinister character named Prince in the film. king said Variety that previously he had only toyed with having that accent, but having to do it for real required some serious preparation.

“When I auditioned, they told me I needed to have a British accent. I’ve done some minimal accent work before this, in my car on the way to appointments, but never had any specific training on it. I had a dialect coach, Jamison Bryant, who is amazing. We worked together every day, for at least an hour, sometimes two to three hours. We went through different types of accents and presented David with a few options. One of my favorite ways to get a character is to read the entire script out loud in that accent. It’s great practice because you want to do well.”

Fortunately, he said, he didn’t have to do much physical training for the role.

I have much less [need] of action than many of the other characters. My character’s greatest strength is his mind, and he uses it to the best of his ability. He doesn’t like to get his hands dirty, but he loves to manipulate”.

Or he might have a little edge on her where she seems psychotic. I told David, ‘I have so many ideas for her and I have a basic understanding of who I think hers is, so I’m going to give you seven different performances and you can choose your adventure.'”

The film is expected to gross about $30 million in its opening weekend, about $10 million less than Pitt’s last box office hit. once upon a time in hollywood, according to Collider. The film is on track to recoup its $90 million price tag.
