Russo Brothers-Produced Netflix Iraq Drama Mosul Gets First Trailer

The film is due to hit the streaming platform on November 26.


Netflix has released a trailer for the Russo Brothers-produced Mosul, a military drama about a young police officer who joins a rogue Iraqi squadron in their fight against ISIS in a decimated Mosul. The movie is due to hit the streaming platform on November 26--check out the trailer below.

The official synopsis adds a little more shading to the broad strokes known so far: "When ISIS took their homes, families and city, one group of men fought to take it all back. Based on true events, this is the story of the Nineveh SWAT team, a renegade police unit who waged a guerrilla operation against ISIS in a desperate struggle to save their home city of Mosul."

In addition to the Russo Brothers'--who themselves have Cherry, a military-inspired movie coming for Apple TV+--Mosul was written and directed by Matthew Michael Carnahan (World War Z, State of Play). It stars Adam Bessa (Extraction, The Blessed) as the inexperienced Iraqi cop Kawa, and Suhail Dabbach (The Hurt Locker, Whiskey Tango Foxtrot) as the wise Major Jasem who leads a struggling squadron of 10 brothers in arms.

The Russo brothers are also producing Everything Everywhere all at Once for distributor A24, pairing with Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert--the duo behind 2016's poignantly kooky drama Swiss Army Man. Starring Daniel Radcliffe as a farting corpse (really), the film was so divisive that there were reportedly walk-outs from screenings during its premiere in the Sundance Film Festival that year.
