Netflix’s ‘The Harder They Fall’ Teaser With Idris Elba, Regina King And More Is Here

It’s “a new school Western.”

Netflix released the first teaser for its’s upcoming feature ‘The Harder They Fall’ starring names like Idris Elba, Jonathan Majors, Regina King, and more. It promises a dusty and dangerous ride and we’ve fastened our saddles.

Coming to the platform and on select theaters, ‘The Harder They Fall’ is what Netflix is calling “a new school Western.” It boasts a star-studded cast with Jonathan Majors, Zazie Beetz, Delroy Lindo, Regina King, and Idris Elba, starring alongside are Danielle Deadwyler, LaKeith Stanfield, Edi Gathegi, R.J. Cyler, Damon Wayans Jr., and Deon Cole. With names like these, it is already in our list of highly anticipated films this year.

The film follows a group of outlaws seeking revenge. The rivals are divided in groups of two with neither ready to back down easily. All of this with a touch of an all-star outlaw action.

The official synopsis for “The Harder They Fall” from Netflix says: “When outlaw Nat Love (Jonathan Majors) discovers that his enemy Rufus Buck (Idris Elba) is being released from prison he rounds up his gang to track Rufus down and seek revenge. Those riding with him in this assured, righteously new school Western include his former love Stagecoach Mary (Zazie Beetz), his right and left hand men — hot-tempered Bill Pickett (Edi Gathegi) and fast drawing Jim Beckwourth (R.J. Cyler)—and a surprising adversary-turned-ally. Rufus Buck has his own fearsome crew, including “Treacherous” Trudy Smith (Regina King) and Cherokee Bill (LaKeith Stanfield), and they are not a group that knows how to lose.”

On Thursday, Netflix premiered the first full look of ‘The Harder They Fall.’

Definitely action packed, we’re hooked right from the first scene. It opens with King’s “Treacherous” Trudy Smith on horseback. She and her gang of outlaws are riding towards a moving train stopping on the track. Next, the crew boards the train to break Elba’s Rufus Buck out of his traveling cell. Meanwhile, the rest turn their guns on the agents who imprisoned him.

The ‘Harder They Fall’ marks the directorial debut of musician and filmmaker Jeymes Samuel. He is the name behind the 2013 short film “They Die by Dawn.” The script is penned by Boaz Yakin.

Samuel is best known as the director of “Remember the Titans” and screenwriter of “Now You See Me.” Additionally, stepping in as producers are Shawn Carter (aka Jay-Z), James Lassiter, Lawrence Bender and Jeymes Samuel.
