Culprits – trailer lands for the slick Disney+ post-heist thriller

Posted Filed under

The stylish UK original show Culprits stars Gemma Arterton, Kirby and Eddie Izzard. 

Updated 26/10/23: Disney+ drops a very swish looking trailer for their new thriller from filmmaker J Blakeson.

Ahead of its November 8th launch, on Hulu in the US and Disney+ elsewhere, there’s a trailer abroad for Culprits.

Focussing on the central character Joe, played by Nathan Stewart-Jarrett, we meet his accomplices from a former life of crime who are all now in danger…

Although it starts with action, the trailer shows us Joe’s comfortable life with his kids before his past comes knocking. Guns, blood and a disused tube station under the British Museum seemingly all play a part in the tale. Plus, some very large amounts of cash!

Joining Nathan Stewart-Jarrett, the show’s ensemble incudes Gemma Arterton, Kirby, Niamh Algar, Kamel El Basha, Tara Abboud, Kevin Vidal, Ned Dennehy and Eddie Izzard.

All 8 episodes of Culprits land on November 8th, 2023.
