Netflix launched the first trailer for the 2019 action thriller Triple Frontier during Sunday Night Football on December 9, 2018. The two-minute trailer effectively laid out the basics of the plot which finds ex-Special Forces operatives struggling to make ends meet in civilian life. Their solution to financial woes involves turning to crime for a massive payday.
Oscar nominee J.C. Chandor, director of 2014’s A Most Violent Year, 2013’s All Is Lost, and 2011’s Margin Call, assembled a first-rate cast to play the former Special Forces team. Two-time Oscar winner Ben Affleck (Argo, Good Will Hunting), Charlie Hunnam (Sons of Anarchy, The Lost City of Z), Oscar Isaac (Star Wars: Episode VIII – The Last Jedi, A Most Violent Year), Pedro Pascal (Game of Thrones, Narcos), and Garrett Hedlund (Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk, Mudbound) star in Triple Frontier. Adria Arjona (Pacific Rim: Uprising, Emerald City) co-stars in the Netflix project.
Director J.C. Chandor co-wrote the screenplay with Oscar winner Mark Boal (The Hurt Locker). Neal Dodson, Alex Gartner, Andy Horwitz, and Charles Roven produced the film. Boal, Kathryn Bigelow, Anna Gerb, Andrés Calderón, and Thomas Hayslip served as executive producers. The behind the scenes team includes director of photography Roman Vasyanov, editor Ron Patane, production designer Greg Berry, and costume designer Marlene Stewart.
Netflix has set a March 2019 premiere date on the streaming service and in select theaters.
A group of former Special Forces operatives 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.
