In June 2021, it was announced that Taylor Swift would be starring in director David O’Russell’s next big project — now, the title of the film has finally been revealed, and a first look at the movie has been shared.
The first sneak peek at the project was revealed to attendees at the 2022 CinemaCon, and per Variety, the film was described as an “original romantic crime epic” by Disney executive Tony Chambers.
Amsterdam will tell the story of three friends, played by Christian Bale, Margot Robbie, and John David Washington. The trio find themselves at the center of a secret plot. And, according to a title card shown in the footage, “A lot of this actually happened.”
Swift surfaces as a mourning daughter, breaking down into tears before her father’s body as Rock looks on.
“You have a dead white man in a box. It’s not even a coffin, it has no lid,” Rock says as Swift sobs. “You know who’s going to get in trouble? The Black men.” Details about Swift’s character and how she ties into the plot have yet to be revealed.
Some of the actors appearing in Amsterdam alongside Taylor Swift and Chris Rock and the film’s leading trio of Christian Bale, Margot Robbie, and John David Washington, are Rami Malek, Zoe Saldaña, Robert De Niro, Anya Taylor-Joy, Mike Myers, Timothy Olyphant, and Michael Shannon.
Amsterdam will release in theaters on Nov. 4, 2022.
