THE GRAY MAN Trailer Pits Chris Evans Against Ryan Gosling

Netflix has released the first trailer for the Russo brothers' espionage action thriller The Gray Man, starring Chris Evans and Ryan Gosling.

The streamer's biggest-budget film ever – with a hefty $200 million price tag – follows Gosling as Court Gentry, aka the Gray Man, a freelance assassin and highly skilled former CIA operative. Once the agency's best merchant of death, Gentry has since escaped from prison and is on the run from his former employers. He soon becomes engaged in a global cat-and-mouse chase when Agent Lloyd Hansen (Evans, sporting an unforgettable pornstache) is sent to hunt him down. Court happens to have some dark secrets about the government agency that are not supposed to see the light of day.

The Russo brothers both direct and write the script alongside Stephen McFeely, based on the book series by Mark Greaney. The Gray Man also stars Ana de Armas (who previously starred opposite both Gosling and Evans in Blade Runner 2049 and Knives Out, respectively), The Matrix Resurrections' Jessica Henwick, Narcos star Wagner Moura, Dhanush, Billy Bob Thornton, Alfre Woodard, Regé-Jean Page, Julia Butters, Eme Ikwuakor and Scott Haze.

The Gray Man will first release in cinemas on July 15th, and be available for streaming on Netflix just a week later. Watch the trailer here.
