Netflix continues to worry and take care of having successes as far as its movie content is concerned. To do this, she often collaborates with high-profile directors and actors, who allow her to make feature films that are attractive to the audience. And often, the streamer fails in his strategy.
The most recent example of this is Spiderhead (spider’s head in our country), directed by Joseph Kosinski, and with Chris Hemsworth and Miles Teller in co-starring roles. A good premise that was only a promise.
That is why the stakes of achieving success increase the pressure to The Gray Man of the brothers Anthony and Joe Russo (Avengers: Endgame, Avengers: Infinity War), which alone has the great responsibility of being a success for the streamer as it is the most expensive production in Netflix history, with a budget of $200 million dollars.
The action thriller of the Russo brothers, titled in our market the gray manis starring Ryan Goslingin his first film role since First Man (2018), Chris Evans (franchise Avengers), y Anne of Arms (Knives Out, No Time to Die).
Con release date on the platform set for July 22, 2022, and limited theatrical release in the United States on July 15the streamer continues with the marketing campaign of the film, launching a new and good promotional poster focused on Gosling, which you find at the end of the note.
In the film, Gosling plays the “Sierra Six,” a deadly CIA assassin/mercenary who keeps his identity a secret due to the sensitive missions he works on. But when he stumbles upon some dark secrets about the agency that were supposed to remain hidden, the tables soon turn and he becomes the target of one of the government’s other top assassins, Lloyd Hansen (Evans).
When the CIA’s most skilled agent, whose true identity no one knows, accidentally uncovers the agency’s dark secrets, a psychopathic former colleague places a bounty on his head, sparking a global manhunt by international assassins.
The supporting cast is made up of Regé-Jean Page (Bridgerton), Billy Bob Thornton (Goliath), Wagner Moura (Shining Girls, Narcos), Jessica Henwick (Iron Fist, Knives Out 2), y Alfre Woodward (See, Luke Cage).
Written by Joe Russo, Joe Schrapnel, Christopher Markus, Stephen McFeely, and Anna Watterhouse, the screenplay is based on the bestselling novel by Mark Greaney.
Netflix is aiming for the film to spearhead a franchise that could be an asset to the streamer for years to come.
As we commented, The Gray Man will be released in theaters in the United States on July 15, 2022while a week later (July 22, 2022) will debut on the streaming platform.
