Netflix has shared the first official clip from The Gray Man, the highly anticipated action-thriller that hails from The Russo Brothers (Avengers: Infinity War; Avengers: Endgame), and it gives us exactly what we were looking for as we get a preview of the showdown of the summer as Ryan Gosling (Blade Runner 2049; Drive) takes on Chris Evans (Captain America; Avengers: Endgame).
The film, which is an adaptation of Mark Greaney's 2009 novel of the same name, follows Court Gentry, a.k.a. Sierra Six (Gosling), a highly-skilled, Agency-sanctioned merchant of death, who suddenly finds himself hunted across the globe by former co-worker Lloyd Hansen (Chris Evans), who will stop at nothing to take him out.
In addition to Gosling and Evans, the supporting cast features Golden Globe-nominee Ana de Armas (Knives Out; No Time to Die), Jessica Henwick (The Matrix Resurrections; Iron Fist), Wagner Moura (Narcos; Sergio), Julia Butters (Once Upon a Time in Hollywood; American Housewife), South Indian superstar Dhanush (Raanjhanaa; Vada Chennai), Regé-Jean Page (Bridgerton; Dungeons & Dragons), Academy Award-nominee Alfre Woodard (Luke Cage; Captain America: Civil War), and Academy Award-winner Billy Bob Thornton (Monster's Ball; Fargo).
The Gray Man hits theaters on July 15, and will start streaming exclusively on Netflix on July 22.
Check out the official clip below:
THE GRAY MAN is CIA operative Court Gentry (Ryan Gosling), aka, Sierra Six. Plucked from a federal penitentiary and recruited by his handler, Donald Fitzroy (Billy Bob Thornton), Gentry was once a highly-skilled, Agency-sanctioned merchant of death. But now the tables have turned and Six is the target, hunted across the globe by Lloyd Hansen (Chris Evans), a former cohort at the CIA, who will stop at nothing to take him out. Agent Dani Miranda (Ana de Armas) has his back. He’ll need it.
