    Cool Globe-hopping thriller

    Please, what can be understood for a "globe-hopping thriller?

    Context is not much: "Several actors star in a globe-hopping thriller that will keep audiences guessing until its stunning climax."

    Thank You very much

    Re: Globe-hopping thriller

    thriller - narrative, typically a novel or a film
    globe-hopping - travelling around the world; there is a possible specialist meaning of 'basketball', but I don't think that's relevant.

    If it's a film, it has a big budget, pretty sets, lots of stunts/CGA, and features aircraft taking off and landing.

    Actually the planes aren't necessary. They are one indication that globe-hopping is going on, but some films cut from New York to Moscow with just the subtitles "Moscow 1985", then a few people speaking Russian with maybe a shot of the Kremlin before you see the hero doing his business there.
    Later you'll see something similar with the Eiffel tower.
