Netflix has just unveiled the explosive trailer for “The Harder They Fall”, the new western inspired by Tarantines, with Idris Elba, Regina King, Jonathan Majors and Zazie Beetz, just that!
The Harder They Fall: war is declared !
Netflix goes western! On November 3, subscribers to the streaming platform will be able to discover The Harder They Fall, the very first feature film by Jeymes Samuel which is produced by Jay-Z. Jonathan Majors (Lovecraft Country) embodies here the outlaw Nat Love. Rufus Buck, his longtime enemy, played by Idris Elba, has just been released from prison. Nat is going to be seized with a terrible desire for revenge and go declare war on Rufus and all his clan.
The official pitch is as follows: When the bandit Nat Love discovers that his enemy Rufus Buck is about to be released, he gathers his whole gang to hunt him down and take revenge. Among the characters who accompany him in this resolutely modern western include his former mistress Stagecoach Mary (Zazie Beetz) and his irascible henchmen Bill Pickett (Edi Gathegi) and Jim Beckwourth (RJ Cyler) at the quick trigger – as well as an unexpected future ally. Rufus Buck is not alone either. Trudy Smith (Regina King) and Cherokee Bill (LaKeith Stanfield) are at his side in a gang that does not know defeat …
A cast of madness
The story of this western with Tarantinesque inspirations is completely fictitious. However, The Harder They Fall summons true historical figures from the history of the American black western. We thus find Mary Fields, Cherokee Bill or Bass Reeves, the first black deputy sheriff of western Mississippi.
Alongside Jonathan Majors and Idris Elba, we find a rather impressive cast. Zazie Beetz (Joker), here embodies Mary Fields, Lakeith Stanfield is Cherokee Bill who is keen on the trigger, Delroy Lindo lends his features to Sheriff’s deputy Bass Reeves. Regina King or Delroy Lindo, present in Spike Lee’s latest film on Netflix Da 5 Bloods, complete the cast.
One thing is certain, the trailer unveiled promises a great show with a lot of action and hemoglobin on the program. In the vein of Django Unchained, we find a completely crazy pop adventure.
