Netflix's New Western The Harder They Fall Gets Bullet-Ridden Full Trailer

The movie stars Jonathan Majors and Idris Elba star, and it releases in November.


The full trailer for The Harder They Fall is here. The star-studded Netflix western stars Jonathan Majors (Lovecraft Country) and Idris Elba (Luther, The Wire). It arrives on the streaming service on November 3.

Majors stars as Nat Love, a real-life former slave who became one of the most notorious Black cowboys in the Old West. He's out for revenge against outlaw Rufus Buck (Elba), who leads a notorious gang that includes Trudy Smith (Watchmen's Regina King) and Cherokee Bill (Judas and the Black Messiah's Lakeith Stanfeld). The trailer doesn't really reveal much plot beyond that, but it absolutely delivers hyper-stylized, high-octane western action, and will be a must-watch when it arrives in November. Check the trailer out below:

The Harder They Fall's trailer follows the first teaser, which arrived in June. A synopsis for the movie has also been released, which reads, "When outlaw Nat Love discovers that his enemy Rufus Buck (Idris Elba) is being released from prison he rounds up his gang to track Rufus down and seek revenge. Those riding with him in this assured, righteously new school Western include his former love Stagecoach Mary, his right and left-hand men--hot-tempered Bill Pickett and fast drawing Jim Beckwourth--and a surprising adversary-turned-ally. Rufus Buck has his own fearsome crew, including "Treacherous" Trudy Smith and Cherokee Bill, and they are not a group that knows how to lose."

The Harder They Fall also stars Zazie Beetz (Joker, Atlanta), R.J. Cyler (Power Rangers), Edi Gathegi (StartUp), Delroy Lindo (Da 5 Bloods), and Danielle Deadwyler (Watchmen). It's the directorial debut of Jeymes Samuel, the British musician also known as The Bullitts (and brother of soul superstar Seal). Samuel wrote the screenplay with Boaz Yakin (Fresh, Remember the Titans).
