It’s the biggest all-star cast of our cinematic dreams and today, finally, it has come to fruition. Overnight 20th Century Studios released the official trailer to historical drama Amsterdam starring the likes of Margot Robbie, Christian Bale and John David Washington.
It is described as a “fascinating and richly intricate tale that brilliantly weaves historical fact with fiction for a timely, cinematic experience” set in a 1930s wartime. Amsterdam is written and directed by the legendary David O. Russell – of Silver Linings Playbook and American Hustle – who follows three friends and accomplices that find themselves in the city of Amsterdam and at the centre of one of the most shocking secret plots in American history.
“We formed a pact and we swore to protect each other… no matter what,” Bale’s character says in the long-awaited trailer.
The film is also garnering headlines for star-studded cameos from Anya Taylor-Joy, Rami Malek, Chris Rock, Robert de Niro and yes, even Taylor Swift. According to Variety, the pop star will play the daughter of the deceased man whose murder is at the centre of the synopsis.
The cast also includes Michael Shannon, Mike Myers, Matthias Schoenaerts, Alessandro Nivola, Andrea Riseboroug and Zoe Saldaña. It is produced by Arnon Milchan, Matthew Budman, Anthony Katagas, David O. Russell, and Christian Bale, with Yariv Milchan, Michael Schaefer, and Sam Hanson serving as executive producers.
The film has been a very long time in the making with online chatter about the film first published back in January 2020. Amsterdam will release into cinemas globally from November 3, 2022, nearly three years after first announcement.
