Netflix’s The Harder They Fall trailer has finally been revealed. Honestly? It’s the fast-paced and stylish shoot-em-up Western we have been waiting for. It just looks…amazing. What has fans even more pumped for this Fall release, is the amazing cast behind it. Watching an outlaw Regina King’s crew chase down a train, and take out the racist conductor, is just so satisfying. The clever banter between King and LaKeith Stanfield is lovingly witty. The scene is then followed briefly by King and her crew boarding the train only to release another outlaw, played by Idris Elba. It is the kind of moment that gives you goosebumps; the kind you get when something awesome is about to happen. Simply put, we are super pumped for this film! It simply cannot come soon enough.
The Harder They Fall follows outlaw, Nat Love, played by Jonathan Majors who is known for Spike Lee’s Da 5 Bloods; and will soon be known to the Marvel Universe as Kang the Conqueror. Nat has discovered that his enemy, Rufus Buck (Idris Elba *swoons*) has been released, and he must get his gang back together to seek revenge. Buck probably killed his parents or something. Regardless of the typical Western story, there will be plenty of nice surprises and twists in store. Even if the plot is, well, “Western-y”, it doesn’t really matter. The delivery looks exceptional! Even more importantly, it looks just downright fun and witty. More importantly, though, the cast shines in this Netflix Western!
The new Netflix Western is going to star Edi Gathegi (The Blacklist), Regina King (no explanation needed), LaKeith Stanfield (no explanation needed), Idris Elba (…), Delroy Lindo, Jonathan Majors (Da 5 Bloods), RJ Cyler (Me, Earl, and the Dying Girl), Zazie Beetz (Deadpool 2), and Tait Fletcher (Breaking Bad). This will be director, Jeymes Samuel’s directorial debut. Oh, and the film is being produced by Shawn “Jay-Z” Carter. No big deal (*screaming on the inside*).
Trailer aside, The Harder They Fall will premier to select theaters and Netflix in the Fall. Netflix’s Fall lineup is all the more reason to get that subscription. If you can, this might be one that is better experienced on the big screen. Just saying.
