When is The Gray Man out on Netflix? Now that they’ve all defeated Thanos in the MCU, Chris Evans and directors Joe and Anthony Russo have teamed up for a new action movie. No longer carrying the shield for Captain America, Evans is the villain, on the hunt for Ryan Gosling’s former agent who knows some things he shouldn’t.
Early clips have the pair in tense set-pieces that involve shoot-outs on trains, bloody stand-offs, and some tense conversations over the phone. Evans as the arrogant, condescending antagonist is a novelty in itself, and going by his show-stealing turn in thriller movie Knives Out, something that makes this worth checking out in itself.
Throw in La La Land and Blade Runner 2049 leading man Gosling, and The Gray Man could be quite special indeed. When can you expect The Gray Man release date? Is there a trailer to rewatch over and over? And who else is in the cast? You’ve come to the right place, and we promise no mercenaries will follow anything you find here.
when is The Gray Man release date?
The Gray Man is coming to Netflix on July 22, after a theatrical run starting July 15. Netflix made the announcement itself in April 2022.
The July release window was revealed in 2021, as part of the streaming service‘s growing selection of projects from A-list talent. After a brief period in development limbo, it was announced in December 2020 that the Russo brothers would direct the film for Netflix in what is currently the platform’s most expensive in-house production, at a budget of $200 million.
Frequent Russo collaborators Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely co-wrote the screenplay with Joe Russo, based on the book by Mark Greaney. Brad Pitt and Charlize Theron were attached to previous versions, but they’ve since stepped away, leading us to now, and a firm release schedule.
is there a trailer for The Gray Man?
The first, proper The Gray Man trailer came out in late May. The footage shows Chris Evans and Ryan Gosling firmly locked in a cat-and-mouse routine, while giving us glimpses of many of the other characters.
Netflix had just wetted our appetites before this, with a mere 16-seconds of footage as part of a compilation video showcasing more of the blockbusters and other studio fare coming in the near future.
Despite the length, we get a fair bit from it. Mostly that it’s going to be explosive, perhaps not as much as your average Fast and Furious sequel, but close enough. Gosling is very broody, while Evans is extremely cocky, modes that suit both actors extremely well.
what happens in The Gray Man plot?
Drawing from Greaney’s novel, The Gray Man starts with Court Gentry, one of the CIA’s best shadow operatives, learning some company secrets that test his loyalty and force him on the run. To catch him, the agency sends out Lloyd Hansen, another, slightly less empathetic gun-for-hire.
What entails will be an intense cat-and-mouse. The supporting cast boasts some big names, from Bridgerton‘s Regé-Jean Page to No Time to Die‘s Ana de Armas, Billy Bob Thornton, and more. Netflix and Joe and Anthony Russo are going all out for this one.
who’s in The Gray Man Cast?
