Justin Timberlake might’ve brought sexy back, but he can’t bring back his onscreen girlfriend.
The singer-actor features in the upcoming thriller Reptile, which dropped its first trailer Monday morning.
The Netflix movie, which has serious True Detective vibes, stars Benicio Del Toro as Nichols, a hardened detective who is attempting to solve the brutal murder of a young real estate agent in a case where nothing is as it seems.
Also starring Alicia Silverstone as Nichols’s wife, the neo-noir crime thriller unpacks the illusions in the detective’s own life as he pulls at the threads of the case.
Silverstone and Del Toro notably starred together in the 1997 crime romance Excess Baggage.
“There’s a case going on,” Nichols says. “It’s a real nightmare.”
The trailer showcases the detective trying to solve the murder, studying bloody case files, interrogating Timberlake’s character, and meeting with the coroner to unpack a possible bite mark on the victim’s hand.
