Netflix’s ‘The Harder They Fall’ Trailer Is Here And Fans Can. Not. Wait.
From the top-class cast to the breathtaking filmography, Netflix's "New School" westerns keep everyone waiting for autumn
While there isn't an official release date yet, Netflix today released the trailer for The Harder They Fall, which gives us a first good look at the feature-length western that looks like the funniest of all time and has more stars than the Milky Way in it.
The film, which hits screens sometime in the fall after major delays due to the COVID pandemic, is described as an action-packed “new school” western and features a predominantly black cast of some of Hollywood's biggest and best names.

The plot seems to be a cowboy classic, with some modern updates and reinterpretations: Outlaw Nat Love learns that the man who murdered his parents is no longer in prison and puts a gang from all over the Wild West together to convert To take vengeance. But also the murderer, the villain Rufus Buck, brings his gang together to create even more hell. The result is an action-packed battle of the titans, which, as far as you can see from the trailer, includes a lot of gun slings, train antics, one-horse towns, saloons, stagecoaches, showdowns and the like.
Now are you ready to hear about the killer cast?
Star Nat Love is played by Jonathan Majors (Lovecraft Country), while his gang Zazie Beetz (Atlanta, Joker), Edi Gathegi (Twilight, The Blacklist) and R.J. Cyler (I'm dying here, scream).
Villain Rufus Buck is played by Idris Elba (do we really need to list all of his credits?) While his own gang consists of Regina King (again, you know) and LaKeith Stanfield (Atlanta, Judas and the Black Messiah). How can we stop ourselves from standing up for the wicked? We are not sure.
Other stars that round out the cast include Delroy Lindo (Da 5 Bloods), Danielle Deadwyler (The Haves and the Have Nots), Damon Wayans Jr. (Big Hero 6, New Girl) and Deon Cole (Black-ish).
The British singer-songwriter and music producer Jeymes Samuel is directing (good to know: his brother is Seal). Samuel, known by his stage name The Bullitts, started filmmaking in 2013 when he released a modern western short film, They Die By Dawn - and The Harder They Fall will be his full-length directorial debut. Samuel also co-wrote the film with Boaz Yakin, a writer, director, and producer who has a number of action films under his belt, including the Jason Statham flick Safe.

Many of the characters in the film are based on real historical figures from the American West, including Wild West actor Bill Pickett, the toughest stagecoach Mary, the miner Jim Beckwourth and the outlaw Cherokee Bill.
Shawn Carter / Jay-Z is also a producer on the film and is believed to have contributed original music to the film.
The trailer doesn't disappoint. In just over two minutes, we're instantly transported to the old west, and everything looks amazing, from the posh sets and camera work to the highly stylized costumes. Old school western shots, like that of a small town with a street, mix with modern music and fresh angles - and the action looks amazing. It will be a long summer of waiting.
The film is set to be released both in your living room on Netflix's streaming platform and in a limited release in theaters - a move that historically means Netflix thinks it could be an Oscar contender.
