Steven Soderbergh’s The Laundromat Trailer Starring Meryl Streep


Netflix is continuing to bolster their awards season chances with the acquisition of Steven Soderbergh’s next film The Laundromat which will arrive on the streaming service this fall. The movie revolves around The Panama Papers (documents that were leaked in 2016 revealing offshore accounts used by many powerful corporations for the purposes of fraud and tax evasion), and although it was thought to be a political thriller of sorts, the trailer reveals that it is more of a dark comedy in the vein of The Informant!. With a high profile cast that includes Meryl Streep, Gary Oldman, Antonio Banderas, Sharon Stone and Jeffrey Wright, it may seem a bit surprising that this is not getting a full blown theatrical release but alas this seems to be the reality of prestige dramas in 2019. The Laundromat hits select theatres on Sept. 27th before arriving on Netflix on Oct. 18th; check out the trailer below and see what you think.
