'Red Notice' Release Date, Cast, Trailer, Plot: What We Know About Ryan Reynolds' New Film

As the stars of the seventh and eighth highest-grossing movies of 2021 respectively, a Ryan Reynolds and Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson team-up is likely to get many cinema-goers very excited.

That joining is in a Netflix movie named Red Notice. Gal Gadot is in it too, and the trailer was released last month.

Red Notice is making its way to theaters now, before coming to Netflix later this month. The action movie is the third team up of The Rock with director Rawson Marshall Thurber after Central Intelligence and Skyscraper.

It stars the former wrestler as an FBI agent, who uses the world's second best art thief (Reynolds) to help capture the first (Gadot). With plenty of The Rock fighting a bull and Reynolds cracking wise to keep fans happy.

If that sounds intriguing, here's more on when it is coming out, who is in it, and more.

When is Red Notice Out?

For viewers who want to watch the movie in cinemas, Red Notice is out in theaters from Friday, November 5. The movie is playing in select theaters, as some major chains refuse to show films that are coming to Netflix so soon after being on the big screen.

As that suggests, the film is coming to Netflix very soon. In fact, views only have a week before the film's streaming release date. The movie is coming to Netflix across the world on Friday, November 12.

As with the majority of Netflix content, the movie will come to the streamer at midnight Pacific Time. When it releases for you will depend on your time difference with America's west coast, which by the release time of Red Notice will be eight hours behind GMT/ UTC.

Who is In Red Notice?

The Netflix movie is led by a trio of former Fast and Furious franchise stars. This is Reynolds and The Rock's second proper team-up after Hobbs and Shaw, though the latter did do a voice cameo in the former's recent Free Guy.

The Rock plays FBI Agent John Hartley, while Reynolds is Nolan Booth.

Gal Gadot, of course, made her film debut in 2009's Fast & Furious, the fourth movie in the franchise. Most recently, she starred as Diana Prince in Wonder Woman 1984 and Zack Snyder's Justice League.

She was also meant to star in Death on the Nile, a movie delayed by the pandemic and now set to be released in 2022. Here, she plays Sarah Black, aka master thief "The Bishop."

The film's $160 to $200 million budget (per Deadline) seems not to have stretched to any more A-list stars.

Also in the cast of the movie is Chris Diamantopoulos (Russ Hanneman from Silicon Valley) as a character named Sotto Voce, while The Umbrella Academy's Ritu Arya plays a character named Inspector Urvashi Das.

What is Red Notice About?

The full Netflix synopsis reads: "When an Interpol-issued Red Notice—the highest level warrant to hunt and capture the world's most wanted—goes out, the FBI's top profiler John Hartley (Dwayne Johnson) is on the case.

"His global pursuit finds him smack dab in the middle of a daring heist where he's forced to partner with the world's greatest art thief Nolan Booth (Ryan Reynolds) in order to catch the world's most wanted art thief, 'The Bishop' (Gal Gadot).

"The high-flying adventure that ensues takes the trio around the world, across the dance floor, trapped in a secluded prison, into the jungle and, worst of all for them, constantly into each other's company. The all star cast is joined by Ritu Arya and Chris Diamantopolous...Red Notice is a stylish globe-trotting game of cat-and-mouse (and cat)."

Is There a Trailer?

The full promo for the movie was released in October, and gives fans a glimpse of some of the wilder moments of the film. The Rock being sent flying across a bullring by a blow that would kill a lesser man? Check.

An FBI agent whose literally only job in the film is to protect museum artifacts smashing a display case so as to use a priceless weapon? Check. Gal Gadot in an inappropriate dress for the amount of ass-kicking she is giving out? Check, check, check.

Ryan Reynolds breaking the fourth wall to speak to the audience? Actually for a change there's none of that.
