So let me get this straight. the dazzling one Regina King, renaissance man Idris Elba, Jonathan Majors, Zazie Beetz, Delroy Lindo, LaKeith Stanfield, Danielle Deadwyler, Edi Gathegi, R.J. Cyler, comedy legend Damon Wayans Jr., and one of the best writers for conan, Deon Cole, did they all work together for a revenge western? Grab your chaps, partners. Let’s drive!
The first trailer for The harder they fall arrived earlier today and it is attracting a lot of attention. But it’s Regina King who stands out the most, as the Oscar-winning actress started trending on Twitter shortly after the trailer made its debut. Fans are excited to see what’s in store. Netflix has also released a first poster and some images of the all-star western.
The official summary foresee The harder they fall of Netflix reads: “When the outlaw Nat Love (Jonathan Majors) discovers that his enemy Rufus Buck (Idris Elba) is being released from prison, he assembles his gang to track down Rufus and exact revenge. New school Western include his former love Stagecoach Mary (Zazie Beetz), his right and left hands—the hot-tempered Bill Pickett (Edi Gathegi) and quick-draw Jim Beckwourth (RJ Cyler)—and a surprise adversary turned ally. Buck has his own terrifying crew, including ” Treacherous” Trudy Smith (Regina King) and Cherokee Bill (LaKeith Stanfield), and they’re not a group that knows how to lose.”
Looks like this movie doesn’t know how to lose! I’ve only seen 2 minutes of this movie, but I’m going to say it. I wish I could sit next to Quentin Tarantino in the theater and watch him pump and cheer with joy. We have our bad asses, our big one-liners, our marksmen, our revenge, our heroes and anti-heroes. Throw in the tumbleweeds…can’t wait! Netflix says “vengeance has never been served colder.”
In the trailer for The Harder They Fall, viewers watch Rufus’s crew hijack a train and take it out of a secure vault. The tense situation sheds light on the fact that this team doesn’t know how to lose, but will do just as well against Love and his crew.
Director Jeymes Samuel, also known as The Bullitts, is an English writer, director, singer-songwriter and music producer from London. The filmmaker made his debut with another western with 2013’s They die by the dawn, starring Rosario Dawson and Giancarlo Esposito. With collaborator Jay-Z (who is also a producer on this film), I’m sure he’ll have us bouncing (galloping?) to the soundtrack.
In 2013, Jeymes collaborated with Baz Luhrmann and Jay Z on the music for the blockbuster The Great Gatsby. Samuel writes along The harder they fall with Boaz Yakin, best known as the director of Remember the Titans and screenwriter of Now you see me. Samuel also produces with James Lassiter and Lawrence Bender. And it’s impossible to miss Bender’s influence on Samuel. Bender is known for his collaborations with Quentin Tarantino on epic films such as such Reservoir Dogs, Pulp Fiction, and Inglorious Basterds.This film has everything you need for an instant classic and a franchise. Who wouldn’t want to see them ride again? The harder they fall will debut in select theaters and begin streaming on Netflix this fall. Increase!
