New trailer for Netflix's upcoming political thriller.


A week after Spike Lee's Da 5 Bloods we're getting another movie from an acclaimed auteur debuting on Netflix. From Olivier Assayas (Personal Shopper; Demonlover) comes Wasp Network, which tells the true story of a Cuban spy (Edgar Ramírez) who infiltrated anti-Castro groups in 1990s Florida. Penelope Cruz, Gaël Garcia Bernal, Ana De Armas, Leonardo Sbaraglia and Wagner Moura also star.

Wasp Network is on Netflix from June 19th.

Check out the trailer and official synopsis below.




The official synopsis reads:

René González (Edgar Ramírez) is a Cuban pilot who leaves his wife (Penelope Cruz) and young daughter behind in the communist island nation to defect to the United States and begin a new life of freedom in the early 1990s. But René is not the upstart American striver he appears to be. Joining forces with a group of Cuban exiles in South Florida known as the Wasp Network — led by undercover operative Manuel Viramontez a.k.a. Gerardo Hernandez (Gaël García Bernal) — he becomes part of a pro-Castro spy ring tasked with observing and infiltrating Cuban-American terror groups intent upon attacking the socialist republic.
