LOS ANGELES – Netflix has released a new trailer for Beckett, an upcoming drama/thriller directed by Ferdinando Cito Filomarino (Antonia) and starring John David Washington, Gamespot reported on July 1. The film will be available on the streaming service on August 13.

Check out the trailer below which, well, kinda puts a damper on plans we all might have

The film’s synopsis follows: "While vacationing in Greece, American tourist Beckett becomes the target of a manhunt after a devastating accident. Forced to run for his life and desperate to get across the country to the American embassy to clear his name, tensions escalate as the authorities close in, political unrest mounts, and Beckett falls even deeper into a dangerous web of conspiracy.”

In addition to Washington, the cast includes Alicia Vikander, Boyd Holbrook, and Vicky Krieps, Gamespot reported, adding that “originally titled Born to be Murdered, Netflix acquired the distribution rights in October 2020.”

Beckett’s world premiere is set for the Locarno Film Festival in Switzerland on August 4, just before it comes to Netflix on August 13, Gamespot reported.
