‘Red Notice’ hits Netflix tomorrow, and here’s 5 things to be excited about

Are you ready to go on a star-studded, swashbuckling, trust-no-one art heist across the globe?

Better get your popcorn ready, because “Red Notice” starring Ryan Reynolds, Gal Gadot and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is premiering on Netflix this Friday, November 12.

Here are just five exciting things to watch out for:

1. The movie has 3 superheroes. For “Red Notice,” writer-director Rawson Thurber has assembled a trio of supers: Ryan Reynolds a.k.a. "Deadpool," Gal Gadot a.k.a. "Wonder Woman" and Dwayne Johnson, who is the upcoming "Black Adam."

In a virtual press conference, Ryan shared that three three of them have actually known each other for a long time, but even he got "starstruck" while working on the film.

"My first instinct is, 'Oh my god, that's Gal Gadot. And that's Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson' just walking in a room right now.' So I get a little sort of starstruck just like everybody else'," he said.

2. A dip in the world of stolen art. A "Red Notice" is the highest level warrant to hunt and capture the world’s most wanted.

The film will follow a daring cat-and-mouse hunt between FBI’s top profiler John Hartley (Dwayne), the "world’s greatest art thief Nolan Booth" (Ryan), and the "world’s most wanted art thief," “The Bishop” (Gal).

The high-flying, globe-trotting heist deals with the world of illegal art trade, so jobs will be done and millions will be wired.

3. A 'different' Gal Gadot. Since it's an action-comedy, heart-pumping fight scenes and hair-raising plot twists are a guarantee. Gal, however, said it was her unexpected character "The Bishop" that got onboard.

"When [Director Thurber] first pitched me the idea for the movie, I was blown away by [how] ambitious and how surprising the story is," said the actress.

"And I was also very intrigued to be able to play a character who's a bit different than what I usually used to do."

4. Ryan Reynolds humor. When you find yourself belly-laughing at the dynamic between Ryan and Dwayne's characters, just know that the well-loved "Deadpool" star actually wrote some of his hilarious lines in the film.

"You know, I think it's a little bit of a stretch to say improv or improvise, because I write a lot of the jokes, you know?" Ryan said.

"I write eight or nine options for each joke and I leave it to the editor and the director just to decide which ones they feel are suitable for the movie. So I like to give them a whole bunch of options."

5. A 'perfect' cameo. Not to give anything away, but there's another ultra-famous public figure who makes an appearance in the film.

With three Hollywood A-listers in the lead, it might be hard to believe how a cameo can shock you, but it will -- among the many easter eggs you'll find throughout the film.

"Red Notice" premieres on Netflix this November 12.

The action-comedy,written and directed by Rawson Thurber ("Easy A," "We're the Millers") also stars Ritu Arya ("Umbrella Academy") and Chris Diamantopoulos ("The Three Stooges"). — LA, GMA News
