Triple Frontier has been in our sights for some time now. It featured on an upcoming Netflix Originals article. Now, we have a trailer for you.
From director J.C Chandor (All Is Lost, A Most Violent Year, Margin Call). Triple Frontier sports an impressive cast including Ben Affleck, Pedro Pascal, Oscar Issac, Garrett Hedlund and Charlie Hunnam.
The film has been in development for some time. Tom Hardy, Channing Tatum, Mahershala Ali, Johnny Depp and Mark Wahlberg were all attached at one point but dropped out and replaced by Affleck and Co.
Triple Frontier also switched directors during production. Hurt Locker director Kathyrn Bigelow was first onboard to direct the new Netflix film but left to direct, Detroit. She was later replaced by Chandor with a script written by Chandor and Mark Boal
The film follows a group of bad-ass special ops turned vigilante mercenaries on a mission to steal an insane amount of cash from a drug kingpin. But when faced with such a tempting amount of money – how loyal will they remain to each other?.
Usually, when a film goes through so many changes during production, it’s never a good sign, is it?. But who knows, I think Triple Frontier looks quite good. It has been a while since we’ve had a decent American action flick.
Due for worldwide release on Netflix and in select theatres, March 2019. I really hope we start to see a lot more Netflix films making their way to the big screen. I think they tried this with Beasts Of No Nation but even though the film was a near masterpiece, it failed to impress at the box-office. It looks like Triple Frontier has the cast to pull in the numbers.
Here you go, enjoy the trailer.
As always, thanks for reading.
