Jared Leto in First Trailer for Yakuza Film 'The Outsider' from Netflix
"I understand… In life, sometimes we fight the current." Netflix has debuted the first official trailer for an action crime drama titled The Outsider, which will be available on Netflix starting next week - not much of a wait. They're getting better at dropping new films out of nowhere. The Outsider is the latest feature made by Danish director Martin Zandvliet, who last made the Oscar-nominated (from 2016) film Land of Mine. Jared Leto stars in this as an imprisoned American soldier in post-WWII Japan. After being released, he ends up working for the Yakuza to earn their respect and repay his debt. The full cast includes Tadanobu Asano, Kippei Shiina, Shioli Kutsuna, Emile Hirsch, Raymond Nicholson, Rory Cochrane, Nao Omori, and Min Tanaka. Okay, this actually looks pretty damn cool. Definitely worth looking into below.
Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Martin Zandvliet's The Outsider, direct from YouTube:
Set in post-WWII Japan, an imprisoned American soldier (Leto) is released with the help of his Yakuza cellmate. Now free, he sets out to earn their respect and repay his debt while navigating the dangerous criminal underworld. The Outsider is directed by on-the-rise, award-winning Danish filmmaker Martin Zandvliet, of the films A Funny Man, Applause, and Land of Mine previously. The screenplay is written by Andrew Baldwin, based on an idea by John Linson. Produced by Ken Kao, John Linson and Art Linson. This has not premiered at any film festivals or otherwise yet. Netflix will release Martin Zandvliet's The Outsider streaming exclusively starting on February 28th later this month. Who's interested? How does that look?

Hopefully this will help him shed the negative buzz he got after Suicide Squad

No matter how good he is, Jared Leto seems to be an actor who can't really find his films. Although, his performances mostly are interesting and good. Slightly interested in this. Will watch someday, definitely ...

You clearly haven't seen Lord of War.

I certainly have. Playing brother to that lunatic Nic Cage. He's a good one, don't get me wrong, but it mostly looks like he's always out of place in most of the films I saw with him. Again, I'm not saying he's not good, I just miss something with him on film and I don't know what. But I think he has earned a great career ...

Yes, hahahahaha, he's definitely someone and something in the area of trans-porting to some other dimension, whether being gender, character-wise or something else. Well, he's a chameleon who does not finish his thing ... .
