The first trailer for the action-comedy Red Notice has dropped and it appears that Dwayne Johnson, Ryan Reynolds, and Gal Gadot are set for one hell of a heist.
Per the film’s official synopsis, “When an Interpol-issued Red Notice — the highest level warrant to hunt and capture the world’s most wanted— goes out, the FBI’s top profiler John Hartley (Dwayne Johnson) is on the case. His global pursuit finds him smack dab in the middle of a daring heist where he’s forced to partner with the world’s greatest art thief Nolan Booth (Ryan Reynolds) in order to catch the world’s most wanted art thief, “The Bishop” (Gal Gadot). The high-flying adventure that ensues takes the trio around the world, across the dance floor, trapped in a secluded prison, into the jungle, and, worst of all for them, constantly into each other’s company. The all-star cast is joined by Ritu Arya and Chris Diamantopolous. Directed and written by Rawson Marshall Thurber (Central Intelligence, Skyscraper) and produced by Hiram Garcia, Dwayne Johnson and Dany Garcia of Seven Bucks Productions, Beau Flynn’s Flynn Picture Co. and Thurber’s Bad Version, Inc., Red Notice is a stylish globe-trotting game of cat-and-mouse (and cat).“
Red Notice, which was originally set to be distributed by Universal Pictures, is reportedly the most expensive Netflix movie made to date with a reported budget of $200 million+. The project began filming in early 2020 and the shoot managed to reach completion by November of the same year, despite the onset of the global pandemic. Johnson referred to the work being done on set to keep everyone safe as the “most aggressive health and safety Covid measures in all of Hollywood.” While many other productions suffered substantial film delays throughout the year due to the pandemic, Red Notice managed to keep on trucking virtually unscathed.
Directed by Rawson Marshall Thurber and also starring Ritu Arya and Chris Diamantopolous, Red Notice hits Netflix on November 12, 2021! Did YOU like the trailer? Let us know in the comments! You can check out some first-look images of the film below!
