Laura Linney Has a Shotgun in Full Netflix ‘Ozark’ Trailer
Most promotion for Jason Bateman’s new Netflix money-laundering drama Ozark has concentrated on … well, Jason Bateman, but no more. The full trailer puts co-star Laura Linney in the limelight as well, along with some impressively cavalier violence.
We’ll only have to wait until next Friday, July 21 to see for ourselves, but the full trailer for Ozark ups the ante from what we’ve seen thus far, especially when it comes to striking cinematography and brutality. The series sees Bateman as family man and financial planner Marty, who moonlights laundering money for a drug lord (Esai Morales), and steals away with his family (and millions of dollars) from Chicago to Lake of the Ozark, Missouri.
Here’s the full synopsis:
A Chicago financial advisor, who has been quietly laundering money for a drug kingpin, must quickly uproot his family and move the operation to The Ozarks, after his partner is caught cheating the business. There, he bumps heads with both a local drug dealer whose business he inadvertently interrupts, and a clan of ruffians, led by their 19-year-old niece, who want his money, all the while avoiding the eye of a tenacious FBI agent. He must complete his laundering, to save the life of his family, as they struggle to find their own path in this seemingly foreign way of life.
The Netflix original series Ozark stars Jason Bateman, Laura Linney, Sofia Hublitz, Skylar Gaertner, Julia Garner, Jordana Spiro, Jason Butler Harner, Esai Morales, Peter Mullan and Lisa Emery.
Bateman also serves as executive producer and directed four episodes. Bill Dubuque created the series and executive produces alongside showrunner Chris Mundy (Hell on Wheels). Watch the first trailers below, and catch the premiere on July 21.
