When Netflix pairs Ryan Gosling and Chris Evans as secret agents, it's a win for moviegoers. The streamer revealed the trailer for The Gray Man, the upcoming action flick starring Gosling and Evans as enemy assassins attempting to, well, assassinate each other.
Gosling is the eponymous Gray Man, an off-the-books CIA asset known as Sierra Six. Or, as Ana de Armas' Agent Dani Miranda puts it, a "reckless mystery [man] you guys send in when you can't officially send anyone else." But when Sierra Six unwittingly uncovers agency secrets, his psychotic ex-colleague, Lloyd Hansen (Evans), is tasked with taking him out.
"I'm about to put a hit so big on your boy's head that even his most loyal allies won't hesitate to drop a dime," Evans' Lloyd says in the trailer. "Every grade A wet team from here to Reykjavik will be vying for the prestige of killing the infamous Sierra Six. I can kill anybody."
"Maybe not anybody," Sierra Six's handler (played by Billy Boy Thornton) quips back.
Regé-Jean Page, Jessica Henwick, Dhanush, Wagner Moura and Alfre Woodard also star in The Gray Man, from directors Joe and Anthony Russo with a script by their Avengers: Infinity War and Endgame collaborators Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely.
Watch the trailer below.
The Gray Man is in select theaters on July 15 and streaming on Netflix on July 22.
