When an Interpol-issued Red Notice–the highest-level warrant to hunt and capture the world’s most wanted–goes out, the FBI’s top profiler, John Hartley (Dwayne Johnson), is on the case. His global pursuit lands him smack-dab in the middle of a daring heist where he’s forced to partner with the world’s greatest art thief, Nolan Booth (Ryan Reynolds), in order to catch the world’s most wanted art thief, “The Bishop” (Gal Gadot). The high-flying adventure that ensues takes the trio around the world, across the dance floor, trapped in a secluded prison, into the jungle and, worst of all for them, constantly into one another’s company.—Netflix

About Red Notice Movie:

Red Notice is an American action comedy film written and directed by Rawson Marshall Thurber starring Dwayne Johnson alongside Ryan Reynolds, Gal Gadot and Ritu Arya. It marks the third collaboration between Thurber and Johnson, following Central Intelligence (2016) and Skyscraper (2018).

On February 8, 2018, a bidding war erupted among major studios for the rights to an action comedy starring Dwayne Johnson and directed by Rawson Marshall Thurber. Studios such as Universal Pictures, Warner Bros. Pictures, Sony Pictures, and Paramount Pictures were all vying for the project. Ultimately, Universal and Legendary emerged as the winners of the bidding war on February 9, 2018.

Gal Gadot was confirmed to star opposite Johnson in June 2018, and Ryan Reynolds was added in July 2019. Ritu Arya and Chris Diamantopoulos were also cast in February 2020.

Johnson, Reynolds, and Gadot were all paid $20 million each to star in the film, while Thurber was paid $10 million to write and direct. After working on the film, Gadot became the third highest-paid actress in the world in 2020.

At a budget of $200 million, Red Notice was Netflix’s most expensive original film until 2022’s The Gray Man.

Principal photography began on January 3, 2020, in Atlanta, Georgia. Production on the film was previously expected to start in April 2019, after Johnson wrapped filming on Jumanji: The Next Level. On July 8, 2019, filming was delayed to early 2020. A planned shoot in Italy was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic in the country. On March 14, it was announced production had been halted indefinitely due to the COVID-19 pandemic overall.

Filming in Italy was completed on November 18. The film was greenlit with an estimated production budget of $160 million and by the time it was released the reported cost had reached $200 million, making it the most expensive film in Netflix’s history.

Visual effects artist Richard R. Hoover served as the overall visual effects supervisor for the film.

Red Notice is one of the first feature films to extensively use the first-person view (FPV) drone flying for cinematography. FPV drone pilot Johnny Schaer participated in filming.

Universal originally scheduled the film for release on June 12, 2020. The date was postponed by five months to November 13, 2020. Netflix then took over on July 8, 2019, moving the film to an unspecified date in 2021. As part of a video and letter to its shareholders in April 2021, Netflix’s co-chief executive officer and chief content officer Ted Sarandos confirmed that the film would premiere sometime in Q4 2021. The film received a limited theatrical release on November 5, 2021, prior to streaming on Netflix on November 12, 2021. Reynolds requested that Welsh language subtitles be provided for the film’s Netflix release.

Netflix revealed on December 28, 2021, that Red Notice accumulated a viewership of 364.02 million hours in its first 28 days of release. With a total of 454.20 million hours viewed, Red Notice ranked among the top most-viewed movies on Netflix of all time.
