There have been a lot of revenge-fueled action movies since John Wick reinvigorated the genre ten years ago, but one of the more interesting-looking genre entries on the way is that of Monkey Man.

Oscar nominee Dev Patel (Lion, Slumdog Millionaire) makes his directorial debut and stars in this thriller about one man’s quest for vengeance against the corrupt leaders who murdered his mother and continue to systemically victimise the poor and powerless.

The film’s international cast includes South African actor Sharlto Copley (District 9), Sobhita Dhulipala (Made in Heaven), Pitobash (Million Dollar Arm), Vipin Sharma (Hotel Mumbai), Ashwini Kalsekar (Ek Tha Hero), Adithi Kalkunte (Hotel Mumbai), Sikandar Kher (Aarya) and Makarand Deshpande (RRR).

Another interesting element of Monkey Man’s production is that the film was destined for a Netflix release before Oscar winner Jordan Peele (Nope, Get Out) and got his production company to pick up the film and ensure it gets a big-screen release.

Monkey Man hits cinemas on 5 April. Check out the trailer below:
