As Netflix‘s initiative of delivering Hollywood blockbuster quality films like Bright, the streaming service premiered a new trailer for Triple Frontier last night on Jimmy Kimmel Live! The upcoming action thriller stars Ben Affleck, Oscar Isaac, Charlie Hunnam, Pedro Pascal, and Garrett Hedlund as disgruntled ex-Special Forces operatives who plan to rob a very powerful cartel located in South America.
The plot synopsis reads:
A group of former Special Forces operatives (Ben Affleck, Oscar Isaac, Charlie Hunnam, Garrett Hedlund, and Pedro Pascal) reunite to plan a heist in a sparsely populated multi-border zone of South America. For the first time in their prestigious careers, these unsung heroes undertake this dangerous mission for self instead of country. But when events take an unexpected turn and threaten to spiral out of control, their skills, their loyalties, and their morals are pushed to a breaking point in an epic battle for survival. Directed by Academy Award® nominee J.C. Chandor (Margin Call, All Is Lost, A Most Violent Year) and co-written by Chandor and Academy Award® winner Mark Boal (The Hurt Locker, Zero Dark Thirty).
Affleck premiered the trailer on the late-night show as he explained why he will not return as Batman. He also spoke about why he chose to do Triple Frontier. “We’ve increasingly placed more and more of the burden to do the fighting and defending of our country on this very narrow band of people, the Special Forces who do all the combat… To meet these guys and get the chance to train with them was a phenomenal honor,” Affleck told Kimmel.
Check out the new Triple Frontier trailer above, and watch the film in select theaters on March 6th before it arrives on Netflix March 13.
