The film has Johnson playing FBI profiler Agent John Hartley, who is forced to team up with an art thief, Nolan Booth (Reynolds), in order to track down the world’s most wanted art thief, Sarah Black (Gadot). The clip below finds Hartley and Booth confronting Gadot as she attempts to steal a valuable egg-shaped jewel. Hartley wants to arrest her, Booth wants the egg… and Black has bad news for them both.
Johnson reunites with Central Intelligence and Skyscraper director Rawson Marshall Thurber for this action-comedy, which, with an eye-watering $US200 million price tag (as per Variety), is Netflix’s most-expensive movie thus far. Both Johnson and Gadot saw $US20 million paydays for their performances.
Fingers crossed the cash that went into this thing results in a good time! Red Notice will be streaming on Netflix from November 12th.
Official synopsis for Red Notice:
When an Interpol-issued Red Notice — the highest level warrant to hunt and capture the world’s most wanted— goes out, the FBI’s top profiler John Hartley (Dwayne Johnson) is on the case. His global pursuit finds him smack dab in the middle of a daring heist where he’s forced to partner with the world’s greatest art thief Nolan Booth (Ryan Reynolds) in order to catch the world’s most wanted art thief, “The Bishop” (Gal Gadot). The high-flying adventure that ensues takes the trio around the world, across the dance floor, trapped in a secluded prison, into the jungle and, worst of all for them, constantly into each other’s company.
