First Glance: “Wasp Network”


Netflix continues their summer movie drops with the latest from acclaimed French filmmaker Olivier Assayas “Wasp Network”. His new film is a Netflix Original and will earn him his biggest premiere audience to date. One thing’s for sure, his film comes with a stacked cast including Penélope Cruz, Edgar Ramirez, Gael García Bernal, Ana de Armas, and Wagner Moura.

The spy thriller follows a Cuban pilot who joins up with a group of defectors in South Florida. They’re called the Wasp Network, a spy ring set on uncovering and infiltrating ant-Castro terrorist outfits in the mid-1990s. There is a ton of information to explore and hopefully Assayas (who also penned the script) doesn’t get bogged down trying to cover it all.

“Wasp Network” opens up on Netflix June 19th. Check out the trailer below and let me know if you’ll be seeing it or taking a pass.

  1. I do like the films of Olivier Assayas though I heard this is shortened version of the film that he’s releasing considering that a version he premiered at the Venice Film Festival last year was not well-received but I do want to see it because of him and the cast.
