Netflix has released an intriguing first trailer for Jared Leto's upcoming crime thriller The Outsider. The story is an interesting one as it follows an "American soldier (Leto) who is imprisoned in postwar Japan and he enters the dark world of the yakuza, adopting their way of life in repayment for his freedom." After he is free, "he sets out to earn their respect and repay his debt while navigating the dangerous criminal underworld."
This seriously looks like it's going to be a great movie! I love the concept and the story, which is going to dive deep into the world of Japan's criminal underworld. That's always fascinated me.
The film was directed by Martin Zandvliet (Land of Mine) and the rest of the cast includes Tadanobu Asano, Kippei Shiina, Shioli Kutsuna, Emile Hirsch, Raymond Nicholson, Rory Cochrane, Nao Omori and Min Tanaka.
The Outsider premieres on Netflix on March 9th.
