Netflix’s mashup of PASKAL and Triple Frontier is pretty awesome


Brotherhood meets brotherhood. Malaysia’s elite special forces meets drug cartel? A highly unlikely scenario but that’s what exactly Netflix has brilliantly done—creating a mashup of homegrown military movie PASKAL with a Netflix Original Triple Frontier which stars Ben Affleck.

The 3-minute trailer splices footage from both movies with freshly shot scenes starring PASKAL actors Ammar Alfian and Theebaan G.

Naval unit PASKAL (Pasukan Khas Laut) is among the most elite special forces in Malaysia. But all bets are off when one of its own stages a hijacking. Based on true events. Starring: Hairul Azreen, Ammar Alfian, Jasmine Suraya. Directed and produced by Adrian Teh.

Official Triple Frontier Sypnosis

A group of former Special Forces operatives (BEN AFFLECK, OSCAR ISAAC, CHARLIE HUNNAM, GARRETT HEDLUND and PEDRO PASCAL) reunite to plan a heist in a sparsely populated multi-border zone of South America. For the first time in their prestigious careers, these unsung heroes undertake this dangerous mission for self instead of country. But when events take an unexpected turn and threaten to spiral out of control, their skills, their loyalties and their morals are pushed to a breaking point in an epic battle for survival. Directed by Academy Award nominee J.C. CHANDOR (Margin Call, All Is Lost, A Most Violent Year) and co-written by Chandor and Academy Award® winner MARK BOAL (The Hurt Locker, Zero Dark Thirty).
