Special Correspondents trailer: Ricky Gervais fools everyone

Posted on

Netflix

Reporting from a war zone is no easy task, so journalist Frank (Eric Bana) and his sound engineer Finch (Ricky Gervais) decide to make their jobs a little easier by pretending they’re reporting from a war zone in a new Netflix film written and directed by Gervais, Special Correspondents.

This, they discover, isn’t exactly an easy task either: In the latest trailer, Frank and Finch struggle to convince everyone that they are, indeed, broadcasting straight from Ecuador. It gets messier once no one can find Frank and Finch in Ecuador, leading the U.S. to assume that the two have been taken hostage. Maybe they actually should have gone to Ecuador in the first place, after all.

Special Correspondents also stars Vera Farmiga, Kelly Macdonald, Kevin Pollak, America Ferrera, Raúl Castillo, and Benjamin Bratt. Watch the trailer above, and see the film when it debuts on Netflix on April 29.
