Ben Affleck & Oscar Issac’s Netflix heist film, Triple Frontier, has an awesome trailer

I did not come into this trailer expecting to be excited about this movie but here we are. We heard last year that Ben Affleck had dropped out of the Netflix film Triple Frontier, also starring hotties Charlie Hunnam, Oscar Isaac, Pedro Pascal and Garrett Hedlund. That announcement was made in June, 2017, about a full year before he went to rehab, and it was in the trade papers, it wasn’t just a rumor. Subsequent press about the film mentioned him however and the new trailer features him heavily however. It has an incredible ensemble cast and it’s a heist movie with a twist. The premise is that a group of military heroes, struggling to make ends meet, rob a notorious drug lord who lives in a fortress deep in the jungle. They tackle the robbery with precision and a plan, aided by an insider, played by Adria Arjona. It’s directed and co-written by J.C. Chandor (A Most Violent Year, Margin Call) and is also written by Mark Boal (Zero Dark Thirty, The Hurt Locker.) No wonder it looks so good!

Here’s the trailer, it’s out in March, 2019:

There are so many good lines in this trailer! The best are: “You’ve been shot five times and you can’t even afford to send your kids to college.” and “If we’d accomplished any of the things that we’ve accomplished in any other profession, we’d be set for life.”

Here’s the synopsis from Deadline:

The group reunites and plans 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. Things 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.

Some of the key action and planning scenes look incredible. Ben Affleck looks good too. He’s kind of a wooden actor, but he does stoic well and that’s what this role calls for. I really want to see Oscar Isaac. He was absolutely compelling in A Most Violent Year and I also liked him in The Last Jedi. (He was too good in Ex Machina in that I really hated him.) Triple Frontier will be playing in some theaters along with being streamed on Netflix. This is such a new release that Netflix doesn’t even have production photos up on their press site. Maybe they know this will sell itself. So many Netflix subscribers are going to watch it.

    Oberyn’s in it! I truly despise Afflack (quack quack), but he’s surrounding himself with more desirable company. I’d have liked to have been in the room when someone told him to do that lol. The movie looks good and quite entertaining. I’ll watch for Oberyn and Hungman.

    Charlie Hunnam, Oscar Isaac, and Garrett Hedlund. That’s a lot of box office poison in one film! 😬 I love at least one of them but… 😬. (Pascal hasn’t headlined anything yet and love or hate Affleck, he can open).

    All (rather bitchy) joking aside, at least this is a Netflix thing (less pressure), and a well-reviewed thriller could do them all good.

    I’m cautiously optimistic. One woman, white American director and writer. Lots of chances for this to go very very wrong. Fingers crossed.

      This could have been a theater release, the story line and god actors, surprised it isn’t a theater release.

    Oh yeah, I’m so there. That cast lineup alone has me hooked, the fact that it actually seems like a good film is just the cherry on top.

  4. Andrea says:

    Yes I am with you that trailer looks good. All my boyfriends are in this film Charlie, Oscar, Garret and Pedro. Can wait hope it out during the holidays.

  5. SM says:

    I am here for Oscar, Garrett and Pedro.

  6. Becks says:

    I’m here for Oscar Isaac…. Just saw him in At Eternity’s Gate, as Paul Gaugin. He was awesome!

  7. Kaye says:

    Does it feature Affleck’s meaty strut?

  8. Molly Fulton says:

    I don’t care what this movie is about. My ovaries are throbbing just watching this cast (Looking at you Pedro, NOT you Ben).

  9. Bella Bella says:

    Not doing it for me. But then again, I don’t like what I call Man Movies.

  10. Foxtrot says:

    I love heist films and the ensemble cast is amazing. Big fan of Oscar Isaac from way back. I will be catching this one. Aside, wish they would make similar films featuring women but not make a huge point of it being a heist/action film featuring women (or heavily feature fashion, weird quirks, one-dimensional feminists, or whatever). Just make an enjoyable action film featuring women without it being self-conscious or a boob-fest.

    Trailer looks good!
    Glad it will be in select theaters as well as Netflix…
