Netflix is growing like a weed when it comes to original content as well as the properties and films they are buying out. When news broke that Netflix was the buyer of Martin Scorsese’s next epic gangster film The Irishman, eyelids vanished, and the world quickly realized where the next step in distributing original films was going. The same can be said for Netflix snagging a satire starring Brad Pitt (among other talents) with the director of films such as Animal Kingdom and The Rover.
While short, the teaser shows just enough of what kind of satire this is going to be, and if it’s as goofy as it looks then we’re in for a treat. It almost makes you wonder if George Clooney isn’t the guy Pitt is mimicking for his character in the trailer. The friends have proven to be constant pranksters and troublemakers for years, but when I see the still I see a fusion of Clooney in O Brother Where Art Thou? and Pitt’s Inglourious Basterds character.
Netflix releases the film for streaming users and members May 27th, 2017 and also stars, Anthony Michael Hall, Topher Grace, Will Poulter, Tilda Swinton, Jonathan Ing and Ben Kingsley.
