Money is the center of everything in the new trailer for Netflix’s upcoming film, The Laundromat.

Based on true events, The Laundromat follows a widow (Streep) as she investigates a money-laundering scheme after being swindled out of insurance money. In doing so, she’ll face a pair of shady lawyers (Gary Oldman and Antonio Banderas) who lead the scheme and secure funds for the world’s wealthiest citizens.

“Did we happen to mention we are in this for the money?” Oldman’s character says in the spot.

The trailer arrives two days after real-life lawyers, Jürgen Mossack and Ramón Fonseca, filed a lawsuit in an attempt to block the film’s release, The Wrap reported on Wednesday. They’ve claimed the film defames them and their law firm; however, Netflix has filed a motion to dismiss the case.


The Laundromat launches Friday, Oct. 18 on Netflix. Check out the key art here:
