In the most recent trailer for the Russo brothers’ new thriller The Gray Man, Ryan Gosling was first seen playing a James Bond-like CIA agent. Now, we have an action-packed clip to watch as well.
Gosling’s character battles his way past multiple villainous henchmen in the new video shown during a panel at Netflix’s Geeked Week before meeting the movie’s antagonist: Lloyd (Chris Evans). There are explosions, Gosling uses a person as a human shield, and Evans whispers the phrase “Ballsy” menacingly. What more could one ask for?
The official synopsis of the series is as follows: “The Gray Man is CIA operative Court Gentry (Ryan Gosling), aka, Sierra Six. Plucked from a federal penitentiary and recruited by his handler, Donald Fitzroy (Billy Bob Thornton), Gentry was once a highly-skilled, Agency-sanctioned merchant of death. But now the tables have turned and Six is the target, hunted across the globe by Lloyd Hansen (Chris Evans), a former cohort at the CIA, who will stop at nothing to take him out. Agent Dani Miranda (Ana de Armas) has his back. He’ll need it.”
