“Do we finally get to use our skills for our own benefit?” Oscar Isaac asks in the first trailer for the star-studded Triple Frontier, a new cartel thriller from Netflix.
The streaming giant is creating so many original shows and movies that they’re attracting some of the biggest names in Hollywood. With Oscar Isaac, Ben Affleck, Charlie Hunnam, Garrett Hedlund and Pedro Pascal starring, they are selling potential viewers on the film’s star power. And it works.
Mark your calendars. You’re going to want to see this one. The first trailer does a good job of selling the ensemble cast and the cool action elements. Directed by Academy Award nominee J.C. Chandor, who directed A Most Violent Year, and co-written by Chandor and Oscar winner Mark Boal (The Hurt Locker), Triple Frontier seems to have all the ingredients of a great feature film.
“Make no mistake about it. You guys need to own the fact that we do not have the flag on our shoulders. You cannot go back to your normal life after tonight,” Affleck tells his crew.
A group of former Special Forces operatives reunite to plan a heist in a sparsely populated multi-border zone of South America. For the first time in their prestigious careers, these unsung heroes undertake this dangerous mission for self instead of country. But when events take an unexpected turn and threaten to spiral out of control, their skills, their loyalties and their morals are pushed to a breaking point in an epic battle for survival.
