The harder they fall tells the story of the outlaw Nat Love (Jonathan Majors) discovers that his enemy Rufus Buck (Idris Elba) is released from prison. Those who ride with him in this confident new school western include his former lover, stagecoach Mary (Zazie Beetz), his right and left hands – the heated Bill Pickett (Edi Gathegi) and the quick-drawing Jim Beckwourth (RJ Cyler ) – and a surprising opponent who became an ally. Rufus Buck has his own fearsome crew including “Treacherous” Trudy Smith (Regina King) and Cherokee Bill (LaKeith Stanfield), and they’re not a group that knows how to lose. Directed by Jeymes Samuel, written by Samuel and Boaz Yakin, produced by Shawn Carter, James Lassiter, Lawrence Bender and Jeymes Samuel, with a hot soundtrack and a stunning all-star cast including Jonathan Majors, Zazie Beetz, Delroy Lindo , LaKeith Stanfield, Danielle Deadwyler, Edi Gathegi, RJ Cyler, Damon Wayans Jr., Deon Cole with Regina King and Idris Elba Revenge has never been served colder.
