Pain Hustlers is one of the most exciting new films coming to Netflix this fall, and the streamer finally gave us a sneak peek at this project. The first teaser for the crime drama starring Chris Evans and Emily Blunt was released ahead of its world premiere in Toronto.

Pain Hustlers hails from the Harry Potter series director David Yates and draws inspiration from Evan Hughes’ New York Times Magazine article and its follow-up book The Hard Sell. It’s been compared to such movies as American Hustle and The Big Short, and here’s what it has in store, according to Netflix’s official synopsis.

“Dreaming of a better life for her and her young daughter, Liza (Blunt) lands a job from Pete (Evans) at a failing pharma start-up, where Liza’s charm, drive, and guts catapult her into the high life and the company into the center of a criminal conspiracy with dire consequences.”

In addition to the leading duo, this project also stars Andy Garcia, Catherine O’Hara, Jay Duplass, Brian d’Arcy James, Chloe Coleman, Amit Shah, Aubrey Dollar, and Willie Raysor.

Pain Hustlers will have its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival next week before heading to theatres on October 20 and being released on Netflix on October 27.
