Say what you will about Jared Leto, but he’s clearly a guy who doesn’t care about barging into spaces where he isn’t wanted. His latest gate crash is into arguably the most exclusive community in global organized crime: The yakuza. That’s the long and short of what the upcoming Netflix drama The Outsider is all about, but here’s a quick plot synopsis anyway:
“An American soldier imprisoned in postwar Japan enters the dark world of the yakuza, adopting their way of life in repayment for his freedom.”
There’s also a trailer for The Outsider now online, and it aims to entice fans of violent action, both of the gun and hand-to-hand varieties, as well as people who just want to see Jared Leto get beaten up by Japanese gangsters. Take a look for yourself below, IF YOU DARE:
The Outsider hits Netflix accounts all over the world next month, on March 9th, 2018.
