Listen up, as there's a new Western movie in town, and it looks *packed* with drama.

Netflix's latest offering, The Harder They Fall, stars Idris Elba and Regina King as they team up to face a rival gang. Plus, Jay-Z is on board as a producer, so we're expecting thoroughly great things.

Here's everything we know about The Harder They Fall...

Is there a trailer for The Harder They Fall?

Yes, and it's full of as much drama as you'd expect.

We start off by seeing Regina King's “Treacherous” Trudy releasing Idris Elba (who plays outlaw Rufus Buck) from being a locked-up prisoner. Cue plenty of gunfire and cowboy rivalry, and the whole thing looks *pretty* explosive.

Have a watch here:

What's the release date for The Harder They Fall?

The Harder They Fall is coming to Netflix next month on 3 November, so there's not long to wait at all.

The Harder They Fall cast: Who is starring in The Harder They Fall?

The Harder They Fall features a star-studded majority-Black cast, and there are some pretty big names in there.

We've already seen Regina King and Idris Elba take the lead in the trailer as “Treacherous” Trudy Smith and outlaw Rufus Buck.

Jonathan Majors (who we've previously seen in Loki and Da 5 Bloods) joins the cast as fellow outlaw and rival to Rufus, Nat Love.

LaKeith Stanfield (from Judas and the Black Messiah) is also on board as Rufus' sidekick Cherokee Bill, while Zazie Beetz (from Atlanta, Joker and Deadpool 2) plays Nat’s former lover Stagecoach Mary.

What's The Harder They Fall about?

The Harder They Fall follows two rival outlaws, Rufus Buck (Elba) and Nat Love (Majors).

After being locked up, Rufus is broken out of prison by his old crew (including King's "Treacherous" Trudy). When Nat discovers his enemy is free, he sets off in pursuit of revenge, after it's revealed Rufus killed Nat's parents many years ago.

Nat sets out to track down his rival alongside sidekicks Stagecoach Mary, Bill Pickett, and Jim Beckwourth, while Rufus is joined by his own crew-members, "Treacherous" Trudy Smith and Cherokee Bill.

The two rival gangs are, inevitably, set up to clash - and we can expect plenty of classic Western duelling.

We can't wait!
