Netflix has finally released the teaser trailer for their upcoming star-studded Western action film titled The Harder They Fall, centered around cowboys and outlaws. The film is scheduled to arrive in select theaters and on Netflix sometime this fall. Check out The Harder They Fall teaser in the player below, along with the first posters and first-look photos.
The video begins with Oscar winner Regina King and Oscar nominee LaKeith Stanfield’s characters leading their gang towards a running train as they help their leader Idris Elba’s Rufus Buck to escape from prison. It also introduces Jonathan Majors’ Nat Love as he assembles his old gang to exact his revenge against Rufus.
When outlaw Nat Love discovers that his enemy Rufus Buck 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, his right and left hand men — hot-tempered Bill Pickett and fast drawing Jim Beckwourth—and a surprising adversary-turned-ally. Rufus Buck has his own fearsome crew, including “Treacherous” Trudy Smith and Cherokee Bill, and they are not a group that knows how to lose.
The Harder They Fall features an All-Star ensemble cast including Jonathan Majors (Lovecraft Country) as Nat Love, Idris Elba (The Suicide Squad) as Rufus Buck, Regina King (Watchmen) as Trudy Smith, LaKeith Stanfield (Judas and the Black Messiah) as Cherokee Bill, Zazie Beetz (Deadpool 2) as Stagecoach Mary, and Delroy Lindo (Da 5 Bloods) as Bass Reeves. It will also star Danielle Deadwyler, Edi Gathegi, R.J. Cyler, Damon Wayans Jr., and Deon Cole.
The film is directed and produced by Jeymes Samuel in his feature-length directorial debut from a screenplay he co-wrote with Boaz Yakin (Now You See Me). It is produced by Shawn Carter aka Jay-Z, James Lassiter, and Lawrence Bender.
