First Glance: “Red Notice”

The upcoming action-comedy-thriller “Red Notice” sees streaming giant Netflix pouring in more money on one film than at any time in their company’s history. This big sprawling blockbuster comes from writer-director Rawson Marshall Thurber and stars the high-profile trio of Dwayne Johnson, Gal Gadot, and Ryan Reynolds. Netflix hasn’t told us much about their Fall tentpole, but they have finally dropped the first trailer.

“Red Notice” sees the beefy Johnson playing the FBI’s top profiler who is on the trail of two rival criminals (Gadot and Reynolds). At first the three are at odds, but the trailer teases a potential partnership that should lead to a healthy platter of action and comedy. There’s still a lot we don’t know about this movie, but this first bite is pretty tasty. It could be a fun big-budget distraction and right in the middle of the super-serious awards season. Sounds good to me.

“Red Notice” premieres November 12th on Netflix. Check out the trailer below and let me know if you’ll be seeing it or taking a pass.
