The trailer begins as we see Wyatt Walker investigate a pharmacy truck on the way to OKC. He looks through the truck after a partner knocks out the driver. The driver was conned and the narrator says that whoever struck the truck was prepared and knew what they were doing. Something goes wrong as Walker hears "stop looking at me" and says, "Be cool, be cool" into his earpiece. We hear a shot fired as a man goes down.
A girl asks Wyatt why he does what he does as we hear the sound of a clock tick. He replies, "It's in our blood". Next, we see him drive off and pay a visit to a woman in prison. As she greets him saying, "Hey sweet boy", he says, "Hey, Ma". It's his mother, Ida "Red" Walker. She asks him how'd it go and tell him she thought so, as he gives her a tense look. Wyatt is next seen with a group of men - it's one of the guy's birthday party where he introduces himself. Ida Walker is doing 25 years in prison for murder and conspiracy and we see a man say, "if anything major went down our name always came up." He says they really understand how far Ida's reach goes as Wyatt pays a visit to Dallas Walker, informing him that Ida wants them to clean it up. He replies, "I'll do it" as we see him show up to a man's door and shoot him dead. Another man was hiding out but Dallas doesn't know that. Cutting to the FBI we see them pull up a file with Dallas and Wyatt's pictures as Wyatt is shown extremely frustrated in his car. Next, we see him taken someplace unknown for business after he tells them he was sent by Ida Red. The plan is to steal cash and blueprints from rich businessmen with him teaming up with Dallas. The job is big and could possibly be their last, setting them up for life. We cut to Ida who warns him, "They know you're coming".
The two-strap in as we see an exciting montage of the job in process with guns fired and masks worn. Ida tells Wyatt that he may have to make some difficult choices as we see him get cornered.
'Ida Red' will release on November 5, 2021. You can watch it in Select Theaters, On Digital and On-Demand on Paramount Movies.
