When outlaw Nat Love (Jonathan Majors) finds out that his nemesis Rufus Buck (Idris Elba) is released from prison, he assembles his gang to find Rufus and seek revenge. Those accompanying him in this confident and fair new-school western include his former sweetheart Stagecoach Mary (Zazie Beetz), his right and left arms – the hot-tempered Bill Pickett (Edi Gathegi) and the fast-paced cartoonist Jim Beckwourth (RJ Cyler) – and a surprising adversary who has become an ally. Rufus Buck has his own formidable crew, including “Treacherous” Trudy Smith (Regina King) and Cherokee Bill (LaKeith Stanfield), and they’re not a group that knows how to lose.
The Harder They Fall hits theaters October 22, and Netflix November 3.
