Starring Andrew Scott, Netflix has released the official teaser of ‘Ripley.’ The teaser has become the talk of the town. The audience is fascinated with how Andrew Scott has created an enigma and has managed to nail the role with ease.

The 1:02 minute long teaser of ‘Ripley’ opens with a shot of a man opening locker doors. It progresses to show how Ripley is a hard man to find because he has no address or a phone to trace him down. The trailer shows Andrew Scott engaging in dubious acts with confidence. He sticks his photo on the passport of another man to make sure he gets his way. People refer to him as Tom Ripley or Thomas Ripley.

Reacting to the teaser, one user said, “It would be amazing if it turns out to be more than just the adaptation of Talented Mr. Ripley and follows through on the subsequent novels because the story is there.” A second user wrote, “I’ll watch anything with Andrew Scott in it.” While a third user commented, “This show has an amazing look!! I won’t lose it.”

Take a look at the official teaser of ‘Ripley’ here.

The best part about the teaser of ‘Ripley’ is how it has been shot in monochrome. This helps establish the timeline and the setting. Every frame has been shot beautifully. The cinematography is top-notch. There is one shot where the frame of a locker frames Andrew Scott’s eyes. That shot is utterly elegant. Add to this, the casting of the series is also remarkable. Andrew Scott excels in roles where he plays a grey character. This is right up his alley. I have a lot of expectations from the actors in this series.

Directed by Steven Zaillian, ‘Ripley’ is based on the ‘Tom Ripley’ novels written by Patricia Highsmith. It stars Andrew Scott, Dakota Fanning, and Johnny Flynn in lead roles. It is set to stream on Netflix from April 4 onwards.
