Netflix published the official trailer for The Gray Man on Twitter on Tuesday. A face-off between stars Ryan Gosling and Chris Evans is seen in the approximately two-minute-long clip. Dhanush, who is marking his Hollywood debut with The Grey Man, is seen in a fashionable ensemble. He also appears in a battle sequence.
Apart from Chris Evans, Ryan is shown in the trailer fighting numerous men in an action scene. He jumps out of a broken glass window and sprints down the street while bombed automobiles are spotted behind him. “I mean, my ego is a little bruised,” he says in one moment when asked if he’s hurt.
In the spy thriller created by Anthony and Joe Russo, Ryan plays The Gray Man, while Chris (Lloyd Hansen) plays his psychopathic nemesis. Ana de Armas, Rege-Jean Page, Billy Bob Thornton, Jessica Henwick, Wagner Moura, and Alfre Woodard all appear in the film. Joe Russo, Christopher Markus, and Stephen McFeely wrote the script, which is adapted from Mark Greaney’s novel The Gray Man.
Fans responded to the trailer with comments on YouTube. A person wrote, “Even though few seconds in trailer, Dhanush’s screen presence shows why he’s the best in business !!” Another fan said, “Watching this movie only for Dhanush and Chris Evans.” “Dhanush! Such a proud moment for Indians to see you in a Hollywood movie!!!” commented another fan.
Court Gentry (Ryan), alias Sierra Six, is CIA operative The Gray Man. Court was previously a highly trained, agency-sanctioned merchant of death, taken from a federal penitentiary and hired by his handler, Donald Fitzroy (Billy Bob Thornton).
But now the roles are reversed, and Six is on the run, pursued by Lloyd Hansen (Chris), a former CIA colleague who would stop at nothing to eliminate him. Dani Miranda (Ana de Armas) is on his side.
Producers include Joe Roth, Jeffery Kirschenbaum, Joe Russo, Anthony Russo, Mike Larocca, and Chris Castaldi. Executive producers are Patrick Newall, Christopher Markus, Stephen McFeely, Jake Aust, Angela Russo-Otstot, Geoff Haley, Zack Roth, and Palak Patel. On July 15, 2022, the film will have a limited theatre release, following a Netflix official launch on July 22, 2022.
