Expectations are high for Gyllenhaal’s portrayal of Dalton, considering his track record of delivering powerful performances. The first trailer showcases intense fight scenes, hinting at a physically demanding role.

The movie seems to focus on themes of fighting against corruption and protecting a community, similar to the original. However, the updated setting and characters might bring new dimensions to these themes, resonating with contemporary issues.

The movie is set to premiere at South by Southwest on March 8, 2024, and will be released on Prime Video on March 21, 2024. There’s anticipation for its reception, especially considering the director Doug Liman’s public disappointment about the movie not being released in theaters.
