Netflix has dropped their trailer for the new Ben Affleck movie, Triple Frontier, a film that will explore what happens when former Special Forces soldiers utilize their skills to pull off a heist, in this case directed against a drug cartel in South America. The premise is interesting, and timely. 17 years of combat in the Global War on Terror has created a pool of hardened combat troops, and once they are done serving their country, some have moved — and will continue to move — on to lucrative careers in the private sectors. They might even turn to crime. In a few cases, that is exactly what happened.
The film is described by Netflix as:
Five former Special Forces operatives reunite to plan a heist in a sparsely populated multi-border zone of South America. For the first time in their prestigious careers these unsung heroes undertake this dangerous mission for self instead of country. But when events take an unexpected turn and threaten to spiral out of control, their skills, their loyalties and their morals are pushed to a breaking point in an epic battle for survival.
