Netflix has dropped the first trailer for Red Notice, a heist film starring heavyweights Dwayne Johnson, Gal Gadot, and Ryan Reynolds.
While major studios are focusing on existing IPs to carry their theatrical slates, Netflix is doubling down on producing large-scale original films. Their latest effort to corral viewers is Red Notice, an art heist film starring some of the world’s most popular actors: Dwayne Johnson, Gal Gadot, and Ryan Reynolds.
Red Notice sees Dwayne Johnson’s FBI Special Agent John Hartley on the hunt for art thieves Nolan Booth and The Bishop, played by Ryan Reynolds and Gal Gadot, respectively. In the trailer, Hartley captures Booth and brings him in to arrest The Bishop.
As the trailer continues, we see Dwayne Johnson and Ryan Reynolds’ characters struggle to work with one another as Gal Gadot’s mysterious character thwarts their efforts. The trailer then ends with The Rock jumping off a suspension bridge as it explodes, ostensibly the money shot for the promotional footage. The promo also briefly teases Johnson and Reynolds’ characters participating in a running of the bulls which should make for some meme-worthy gifs.
While most of the hilarious bits come from Ryan Reynolds, it’s clear from the trailer that Red Notice will focus mostly on Dwayne Johnson nabbing Gal Gadot’s elusive thief, who is hell-bent on destroying the FBI agent.
Here is the official synopsis for Netflix’s Red Notice:
An Interpol-issued Red Notice is a global alert to hunt and capture the world’s most wanted. But when a daring heist brings together the FBI’s top profiler (Dwayne Johnson) and two rival criminals (Gal Gadot, Ryan Reynolds), there’s no telling what will happen.
Written and directed by Rawson Marshall Thurber, the Netflix film stars Dwayne Johnson, Gal Gadot, Ryan Reynolds, Ritu Arya, and Chris Diamantopoulos.
Red Notice will be available on Netflix on November 12.
