Mosul Trailer: The Russo Brothers Bring Iraq Action Thriller to Netflix


Extraction was a big hit for Netflix earlier this year, bringing in massive viewership numbers and prompting the streaming service to announce a sequel. Now producers Joe and Anthony Russo are bringing another action movie to Netflix this month although it does not have the star power of Chris Hemsworth to rely on. Written and directed by Matthew Michael Carnahan (screenwriter of such films as World War Z and Dark Waters), Mosul revolves around an Iraqi SWAT team battling ISIS militants in the titular city in northern Iraq. The movie premiered at Venice and TIFF last year and seemed to get decent reviews, although it clearly focuses more on relentless action than character development or context. Mosul arrives on Netflix on Nov. 26th; check out the trailer below and let us know what you think.
