“Did we happen to mention we are in this for the money?” Netflix has debuted one final trailer for Steven Soderbergh’s film The Laundromat, arriving on streaming this week after opening in theaters last month. The film is all about the Panama Papers, told from multiple perspectives with vignettes. The main story is about a widower looking into insurance fraud, who ends up stumbling upon a pair of law partners exploiting the world’s financial system. “Zipping through a kaleidoscope of comic detours in China, Mexico, Africa (via Los Angeles) and the Caribbean en route to 2016’s Panama Papers publication — where journalists revealed the secret, leaked documents of Mossack Fonseca’s high-profile patrons.” The big cast includes Meryl Streep starring, along with Gary Oldman, Antonio Banderas, Jeffrey Wright, Melissa Rauch, Jeff Michalski, Jane Morris, Robert Patrick, David Schwimmer, Will Forte, Chris Parnell, Nonso Anozie, Larry Wilmore, Matthias Schoenaerts, Rosalind Chao, Kunjue Li, Ming Lo, with James Cromwell and Sharon Stone.
