With his previous three films, J.C. Chandor announced himself as a sharp and talented director, crafting compelling dramas and drawing stellar performances from A-listers. Now he’s following up Margin Call, All Is Lost and A Most Violent Year with Netflix action-drama Triple Frontier, assembling a star-studded cast including Ben Affleck, Oscar Isaac, Pedro Pascal, Charlie Hunnam and Garrett Hedlund. They play a group of former special ops soldiers facing financial hardship, choosing to resolve their situation by pulling off a heist against a notorious Colombian cartel kingpin. Safe to say, it won’t be easy.

Speaking in the new issue of Empire, Chandor explained that Triple Frontier balances action spectacle with character drama and underlying social commentary, exploring the impact that military experience has on war veterans – and the wider US population. “In my mind, the film was a play on some of those action movies with a kind of moral or ethical dilemma at their core,” Chandor tells Empire, “as well as an idea of masculinity, and what makes you valuable to yourself, your family and society.”
