Is it just me, or does the first full trailer alone for the new Apple TV+ movie starring George Clooney and Brad Pitt look better than most Netflix movies of the recent past?

The stars of Wolfs haven’t appeared in a film together since 2008’s Burn After Reading (and the Ocean’s heist franchise before that). Apple released a teaser trailer yesterday in which not a word was spoken and not a single detail was revealed about the new movie, which is exactly how I’d crow that Apple bagged a film with the two stars if I was the one in charge of the streamer. All the details will come later — but for now, it’s as if Apple was saying with that first teaser: Eat your heart out, Netflix.

The latter, I’m sorry to say, has struggled to put out quality original movies with any consistency for much of the recent past (Atlas, starring Jennifer Lopez, being the latest example), and has furthermore taken a bit of an unnecessarily my-way-or-the-highway stance when it comes to theatrical distribution. For better or worse, Apple TV+ has been putting one big-budget feature film after another into theaters, and that will continue this fall when Wolfs hits the big screen on Sept. 20.

The new full trailer, which you can check out below, makes clear what the story is about. Clooney and Pitt play a pair of professional fixers, both of whom are lone wolves and who’ve been hired for the same job to their chagrin. Making this film all the more of an intriguing project to be aware of: Wolfs was written and directed by Jon Watts, whose credits include Spider-Man: No Way Home and the brilliant FX spy series The Old Man.

Apple’s movie library has been pretty spotty overall so far, which I chalk up to the growing pains of beefing up their more curated selection from scratch. And so Wolfs one will be a welcome addition to the service, indeed.
