So what exactly will the amsterdam film directed by David O. Russell involve? The story produced by 20th Century Studios follows three friends – a doctor, a nurse and a lawyer – who become prime suspects in a murder in the 1930s. Deadlinea yet-to-be-revealed trailer that debuted exclusively at CinemaCon 2022 touted Russell’s “absurd rock and roll vibe and high kicks” American stampede.Which isn’t the worst comparison to make.
“In the amsterdam trailer for the film, Robert De Niro skeptically asks the trio about their past,” describe Nancy Tartaglione and Anthony D’Alessandro of Deadline.
“They are a doctor, a nurse and a lawyer – all veterans who met in Belgium. A title card reads, “A lot of this actually happened.” Cue The Who’s ‘Join Together With the Band’ and voice-over by Christian Bale, who tells us: ‘We’ve made a pact and sworn to protect each other no matter what. But sometimes life is perfect until it’s not.
“The trailer culminates with Chris Rock, Christian Bale and Taylor Swift standing around a coffin. ‘You’ve got a dead white man in the box,’ Rock says to Bale. ‘Who do you think is going to get in trouble for this? ?The black guy?’”
In addition to directing this ship, Russell wrote the screenplay and reunited with executive producer Matthew Budman (american hustle, Joy). Legendary Emmanuel “Chivo” Lubezki accomplished the cinematography – who you might know through children of men, Gravity, birdmanand The ghost.
