Netflix has revealed a new trailer for The Last Thing He Wanted. This looks to be a prestigious thriller, as it’s directed by Dee Rees and features a pair of A-list stars in the lead with Ben Affleck and Anne Hathaway. Plus, it’s set to make its debut at the Sundance Film Festival next week, which adds a little more fuel to the fire. Looking purely at the trailer, it looks to be a twisty, tense ride in the seedy underworld of arms dealing.
The trailer shows us Anne Hathaway, who plays an investigative journalist, and Ben Affleck who is clearly not on her side, in the middle of some shady arms deals. There are some shady dealings going on and Hathaway puts herself at risk to scope out the situation. Things get complicated when her dad ends up mixed up in all of this. It looks to be a stylish flick that will get by with intrigue and keeping the audience guessing, as opposed to having stuff blow up. It looks like the kind of movie that might have a difficult time finding an audience in theatres, but that’s where Netflix comes in.
This Netflix original serves as the follow up to the acclaimed drama Mudbound for Dee Rees. The movie went on to earn four Academy Award nominations. As for Ben Affleck, he starred in another Netflix thriller, Triple Frontier, last year, which served as his follow-up to Justice League. Affleck also appeared in Jay and Silent Bob Reboot. Anne Hathaway, meanwhile, starred in The Hustle and Serenity, both of which underperformed a bit, but she also appeared in the critically-heralded Dark Waters. Affleck also has The Way Back on deck for this year, and Hathaway is set to star in The Witches remake directed by Robert Zemeckis.
