It’s certainly one of the most anticipated releases of 2021, thanks in part to its impressive cast, but also because of its impressive budget. Red Notice is the next blockbuster to land in the Netflix catalog and we finally know when we can spot it on our screens.
When the best FBI profiler and two criminals team up
It’s been a while since we heard about Red Notice, the next (very) big budget movie Netflix will have in its catalog. And in order to face the ever tougher competition, the streaming giant did not hesitate to get its hands on the portfolio. In fact, this film, which will mix thriller, action and comedy, has a monster budget of $ 160 million!
With a budget like this, the leader in American streaming can afford pretty headliners with a trio of Dwayne Johnson, Ryan Reynolds and Gal Gadot. Directed by Rawson Marshall Thurber, who will reunite with The Rock after working together on Fast Secret Agents 2016 and Skyscraper 2018, Red Notice features the best FBI profiler played by Dwayne Johnson and two rival criminals, Gal Gadot and Ryan Reynolds. All three will be reunited after Interpol issued a red alert to hunt down the world’s most wanted criminals after a daring robbery.
And, as Dwayne Johnson notes on his Twitter account, “no one can predict the outcome of the operation” when such a team comes together.
The release date is finally known
In addition to the unveiled synopsis, the actor took the opportunity to announce the release date of Red Notice on Netflix. We’ll have to wait a few more months as the film will be available on the platform on November 12th.

And the cocktail promises to be explosive. The three headliners know each other pretty well for good reason, as Johnson has played with the actress who plays Wonder Woman in Fast & Furious 5 and 6 and with the performer of Deadpool in the Hobbs & franchise spin-off Shaw.
As a reminder, Red Notice won’t be the only blockbuster Netflix has in store for us this year. We’ll also be able to enjoy Adam McKay’s Don’t Look Up with Leonardo DiCaprio, Jennifer Lawrence, Timothée Chalamet and Ariana Grande, or even The Harder They Fall, a western co-produced by J-Zay that is part of the ’70s original, creations made by the platform.
