“Just for the record, there’s not one person in this group I would’ve chosen for this type of mission.” That’s the sound of a remarkable true story coming to the screen in Netflix’s The Red Sea Diving Resort – and the first trailer for the movie gives us a taste of the action in store.
The film tells the incredible tale of a group of international agents and brave Ethiopians, who, in the early 80s, used a deserted holiday retreat in Sudan as a front to smuggle thousands of refugees to Israel. The undercover team carrying out this mission was led by the charismatic Ari Levinson (Chris Evans) and courageous local Kabede Bimro (Michael Kenneth Williams).
The pair are joined by an equally prestigious supporting cast, including Haley Bennett, Alessandro Nivola, Michiel Huisman, Chris Chalk, Greg Kinnear and Ben Kingsley.
The action-packed flick premieres on Netflix on Friday 31st July. Here’s the trailer:
The Red Sea Diving Resort is available on Netflix UK, as part of an £8.99 monthly subscription.
