With the world of theatrical films becoming less and less stable, more and more filmmakers are making the leap to Netflix. In 2018, director-actor team Peter Berg and Mark Wahlberg had themselves a bit of a misfire with the odious action film Mile 22 – a movie that didn’t flop, but didn’t set the box office on fire, either. Rather than risk that again, Berg and Wahlberg are now at Netflix with Spenser Confidential, an action-comedy based on the book series from Robert B. Parker. Watch the Spenser Confidential trailer below.

Get Out was an incisive, socially-conscious horror movie that put Jordan Peele on the map as a filmmaker to watch, so it’s no wonder that people expect his sophomore effort to be just as perceptive about race.
