A shakeup is in order in "High Flying Bird."
Netflix released the trailer for the Steven Soderbergh sports drama on Thursday, Jan. 17, and it shows André Holland as a disruptive force in pro basketball. The actor plays Ray Burke, an agent who handles a league lockout in a daring way.
The preview shows Ray making moves during the standoff and working with a rookie (Melvin Gregg). As the lockout continues, he discusses the possibilities of building a new industry and giving more power back to the players. Ray even makes "the matchup everyone's been dying to see" happen.
Watch the trailer below.
In addition to Holland and Gregg, the film stars Zazie Beetz, Sonja Sohn, Zachary Quinto, Kyle MacLachlan, and Bill Duke. There are also appearances from NBA vet Reggie Jackson and current players Karl-Anthony Towns and Donovan Mitchell. Soderbergh directs from a script written by Academy Award winner Tarell Alvin McCraney.
"High Flying Bird" premieres Feb. 8 on Netflix.
