Ahead of the world premiere of Orson Welles’ “The Other Side of the Wind” at the Venice Film Festival, Netflix has debuted the first trailer for the long-in-the-works Hollywood epic. Welles shot the movie between 1970 and 1976, but it’s taken 48 years to finish the film’s post production. Welles died before the movie was completed, but Netflix stepped in to complete the movie starting in 2017.
“The Other Side of the Wind” stars legendary film director John Huston as J.J. “Jake” Hannaford, a grizzled director who returns to a changed Hollywood after spending years abroad in Europe. The filmmaker attempts to make a comeback in Hollywood, but the new landscape of the industry threatens his plans.
Netflix is world premiering “The Other Side of the Wind” at the Venice Film Festival on August 30. The movie will also screen at NYFF. “Wind” will debut on Netflix and in select theaters November 2. Watch the official trailer below.
