As for Red Notice, the new action/comedy from director Rawson Marshall Thurber that hit Netflix earlier this month. The movie stars Johnson, Ryan Reynolds, and Gal Gadot in a worldwide adventure about art thieves. Despite the movie's poor critics score on Rotten Tomatoes, audiences seem to be loving the new flick. Not only does Red Notice currently have a 92% audience score on Rotten Tomatoes, but it also had Netflix's biggest opening day for any film.
Thurber recently spoke with Empire Magazine about working with the Red Notice cast. "I mean, talk about charisma," Thurber shared. "So what does happen when you get Deadpool, Wonder Woman, and Black Adam in the immediate vicinity of one another? I feel very, very fortunate. It's a little bit like directorial cheating, having all three of them together in the same frame. Chemistry is just not a function of writing or even directing – it's a function of casting. You either have it or you don't. And those guys have something special."
In Red Notice, Johnson's federal agent character is on the hunt for Reynolds' art thief. "[Dwayne plays an] FBI profiler who specializes in art crime," Thurber explained. "He is on the hunt for Ryan Reynolds, who plays the most wanted art thief in the world. Gal Gadot plays this mysterious figure in the art world. As the say… high-jinks ensue."
Red Notice is now streaming on Netflix.
