Both the scale of Netflix’s premiere and the pandemic dominated the conversations last night, and for good reason. Production on the film — the streamer’s most expensive project ever — was halted on March 14, 2020, just as the COVID-19 pandemic tightened its grip in the United States and brought much of regular life to a grinding halt. It resumed months later, in September in Atlanta, amid strict protocols as one of the first major Hollywood productions to do so.

There was much to celebrate because of that and it was clear that Netflix spared no expense for the premiere, too. The red carpet sprawl — “I love the color,” Gadot also noted while dressing for the occasion in a sparkly Loewe and Tiffany and Co. gems — featured recreations of the set, towering images of the trio and a mini-arena with a custom stage, hype man (flown in from San Francisco) and host in E!’s Justin Sylvester for a YouTube live stream.

People are going to have to watch.”

With Ryan, we have great chemistry and not only that, we have great trust. I’ve known him for 20 years but in terms of being a star, the truth is when you work with someone of Ryan Reynolds caliber or at his level, a lot of actors that I’ve worked with, they don’t necessarily have a real funny bone or a real sense of humor. Ryan has that,” explained Johnson. “But dude, as he likes to say, we wasted millions of dollars of Netflix’s money by laughing constantly and ruining takes.”

‘ Red Notice ’ Review: Ryan Reynolds, Dwayne Johnson , and Gal Gadot Star in Netflix ’s Breezy “ Red Notice ,” on the other hand, is the brainchild of Rawson Marshall Thurber, a That Thurber and Johnson ’s latest collaboration is reportedly the most expensive movie Netflix has ever made would

Red Notice review: " Johnson , Reynolds, and Gadot deliver a flimsy but playful Netflix frolic". Early in Netflix ’s globe-trotting romp Red Notice , a priceless artifact is revealed to be a clever fake by the application of a fizzy drink. You won’t need sugary beverages to catch writer/director Rawson Marshall Thurber’s comedy-thriller out, because it’s exactly what it seems to be: a starry and undemanding caper, with Dwayne Johnson , Ryan Reynolds, and Gal Gadot sticking like fingerprints to character type.

Reynolds got specific by saying it’s actually 21 years, and they met during respective press tours while Johnson was promoting Scorpion King and Reynolds Van Wilder. “We hit it off and have been friends ever since,” said the actor, in a Giorgio Armani burgundy corduroy three-piece suit and accompanied by his mother who was often spotted proudly filming her son during his interviews. “There’s such an easy, crazy shorthand between us when we’re on set. We had it on Hobbs and Shaw, and we knew we’d have it here as well.”

The big difference this time around was managing the work amid a deadly pandemic that forced the crew to isolate in a bubble while filming for months. To help soften the blow, Reynolds recorded personal videos for each crew member that they could send to anyone in their life. As THR previously reported, Reynolds recorded more than 400. “Sometimes their families were a mile away, they were in a van and they couldn’t go anywhere because of this lockdown,” he recalled. “It was a privilege to do it. I just did it in between takes, whenever I could. It was lovely. I know it sounds like a lot, but it was nothing.”

The director of 'Red Notice' defends having working guns on movie sets: 'There is value using blanks on set'

  The director of 'Red Notice' defends having working guns on movie sets: 'There is value using blanks on set' Director Rawson Marshall Thurber says all different kinds of guns were used on "Red Notice," including ones that were loaded with blanks.Dwayne Johnson is among those who have vowed to stop using live guns in their movies. But his "Red Notice" director, Rawson Marshall Thurber, defended the use of real guns on movie sets.

Red Notice casts Johnson as the FBI’s top profiler John Hartley, following him after Interpol-issues a Red Notice, the highest level warrant for a most-wanted individual. His global pursuit lands him in the middle of a heist where he’s forced to partner with the world’s greatest art thief Nolan Booth (Reynolds) in order to catch the world’s most wanted art thief, known as The Bishop (Gadot). Oh, and Thurber also has a role playing “exhausted film director,” quite a stretch he laughed.

“I feel like I’ve been preparing my whole life,” quipped Thurber, who didn’t have to exhaust much energy though to get his cast, each of whom he noted were his first choice, or “three number ones.” “And certainly for this entire production, this was a real challenge. We were halfway through shooting when the pandemic hit. We had to shut down. So it was exhausting, but I always try to have a little cameo if I can. And Dwayne made it easy for me. I’m at the bar and that’s where I’m most comfortable.”

But back to COVID-19, the producers explained what a heavy lift the film was due to stopping, starting and navigating protocols and an expanding budget. It was all worth it, said Dany Garcia. “There’s no version in our industry where you commit to using individuals, their skills and talents and you don’t take ownership for their wellbeing and safety. It’s just part of doing business and it’s the right way to do business.”

But his "Red Notice" director, Rawson Marshall Thurber, defended the use of real guns on movie sets.

She said seeing the film celebrated the way it was last night made her a bit emotional because of what they went through in making it. “Our crew was phenomenal and so was our talent — they all just came through and delivered. So to have this land in this manner here tonight and have a premiere like this, it feels appropriate and so open and so Hollywood.”

That’s a credit to Netflix, again, a company Flynn also praised for paying their crew for two months right after they shut down last March while they figured out how best to proceed. “We took a weekend off and we were right back at it. We spent six months trying to figure out how to get the movie back, all over Zoom. They paid our crew for two months while we were down, over 700 people,” said the veteran producer and frequent collaborator of Johnson and the Seven Bucks team over 11 years and nine movies. “That was amazing because a lot of people were not prepared. They thought they had a big job ahead of them and then it was just gone in a day. It really incentivized everyone to work really hard.”

But on a night like Wednesday, it was less work and more play. Ahead of the film’s premiere, Netflix hosted a VIP reception that featured dueling bars pouring Johnson’s Teremana Tequila from a “Mana Mobile” while Reynolds’ Aviation Gin was being offered up across the way. “To have an event like this, where all this is going on, there’s just a sign that we are getting back to a new norm,” explained Hiram Garcia. “And to be able to have a premiere like this, this big and open out in the wild, it’s pretty awesome.”

Epic is the word Flynn leaned on. “It’s also so cool, especially on the back of COVID. Everyone had to show their vax cards and be tested in order to be here and they really went for it, but it feels good. This is why we’re in this business, right? That’s why we’re here.”
