triple frontier review

Triple Frontier had a long, strange journey to the big (and in most cases, small) screen. Back in 2011, Kathryn Bigelow was set to direct, with Tom Hanks starring. By 2015, Bigelow was out, and J.C. Chandor was in. Chandor would spend the next several years with the project, with one big name after another being floated for potential cast members: Johnny Depp, Tom Hardy, Channing Tatum. At one point, the Affleck brothers – Ben and Casey – were being courted to star.

But the Afflecks eventually left, and Mark Wahlberg stepped in, while Charlie Hunnam, Garrett Hedlund, and Pedro Pascal also signed on. And then, in a last bit of weirdness, Wahlberg bailed, and Ben Affleck returned. Oscar Isaac joined as well, and at last, Chandor had his cast in place, and Netflix appeared on the scene to help get the movie made. Now, Triple Frontier opens in select theaters this week before dropping on Netflix next week. Was this frustrating path to the screen worth all the trouble? No…and yes.

triple frontier trailer

Triple Frontier‘s long road to the big screen is almost as fascinating as the film itself. The drug money heist thriller was in the works for years at Paramount Pictures with Katherine Bigelow set to helm the film. Then Netflix picked it up with Oscar-nominated A Most Violent Year director J.C. Chandor attached.

Meanwhile, the cast went through quite a revolving door of actors, with Johnny Depp and Mark Wahlberg at one point slated to lead, then Tom Hardy and Channing Tatum. But the while the coulda beens for this movie are intriguing, the finished product looks like a thrilling film with a cast that is arguably even better than all the past names. Oscar Isaac and Ben Affleck lead a star-studded cast including Charlie Hunman, Garrett Hedlund, and Pedro Pascal, who star as a team of Special Forces operatives who use their special set of skills for personal gain, leading to dangerous consequences. See just what those consequences are with the newest Triple Frontier trailer below.

Triple Frontier Trailer

Do you remember Triple Frontier? The drug money heist thriller was in the works for years at Paramount Pictures with Zero Dark Thirty director Katherine Bigelow. Then it jumped to Netflix with Margin Call director J.C. Chandor at the helm, co-writing the script with Mark Boal, but it had a hard time holding onto a cast. Johnny Depp and Mark Wahlberg were both slated to lead the movie, and then Tom Hardy and Channing Tatum were part of the cast before they all fell away.

Odds be damned, Triple Frontier finally made it in front of cameras. It still has an impressive cast, with Ben Affleck leading a team of Special Forces operatives played by Oscar Isaac, Charlie Hunnam, Garrett Hedlund, and Pedro Pascal, and the first trailer makes it look like one of the best Netflix original movies yet. Watch the Triple Frontier trailer below. Read More »
