John David Washington and Alicia Vikander star in the upcoming film Beckett, formerly titled Born to be Murdered.

Netflix wasn’t kidding when it said it’d be releasing a new film every week in 2021, with the trailers for its upcoming movies coming thick and fast. Today’s promo is Beckett, an upcoming conspiracy thriller starring John David Washington and Alicia Vikander. Boyd Holbrook (The Predator) also features.

The premise for the film goes as follows: ‘while vacationing in Greece, Beckett (John David Washington), an African-American tourist, becomes the target of a manhunt after a devastating accident. Forced to run for his life and desperate to reach the U.S. embassy in Athens 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.’

The film was shot in Athens in 2019 with Netflix acquiring it in October 2020. It certainly has potential to be interesting with two solid leads. The film is set to be released August 13th.
