‘Nobody’ Trailer: Bob Odenkirk Kicks Ass with the Creator of ‘John Wick’

Universal Pictures

You haven’t seen Bob Odenkirk like this before.

The Better Call Saul star leads the upcoming action film Nobody, scripted by John Wick franchise writer Derek Kolstad and directed by Hardcore Henry helmer Ilya Naishuller.

Odenkirk plays underestimated family man Hutch, who finds his long-simmering rage coming to the surface following a home robbery – in which he failed to defend his family. As the trailer reveals, he’s actually a badass with a bit of a history. Cue the action.

It’s a fun-looking film – and a potential franchise starter for Odenkirk, who doesn’t automatically come to mind as an action star, but sure looks to be fitting the part. Looking forward to seeing this one.

Also starring Christopher Lloyd and Connie Nielsen, among others, Nobody opens in the US on February 26th and arrives in Australia sometime in March, 2021.

Official synopsis for Nobody:

Sometimes the man you don’t notice is the most dangerous of all.

 

Emmy winner Bob Odenkirk (Better Call Saul, The Post, Nebraska) stars as Hutch Mansell, an underestimated and overlooked dad and husband, taking life’s indignities on the chin and never pushing back. A nobody.

 

When two thieves break into his suburban home one night, Hutch declines to defend himself or his family, hoping to prevent serious violence. His teenage son, Blake (Gage Munroe, The Shack), is disappointed in him and his wife, Becca (Connie Nielsen, Wonder Woman), seems to pull only further away.

 

The aftermath of the incident strikes a match to Hutch’s long-simmering rage, triggering dormant instincts and propelling him on a brutal path that will surface dark secrets and lethal skills. In a barrage of fists, gunfire and squealing tires, Hutch must save his family from a dangerous adversary (famed Russian actor Aleksey Serebryakov, Amazon’s McMafia)—and ensure that he will never be underestimated as a nobody again.
