Money Heist (La Casa de Papel) trailer dropped last week, and Netflix released the official air date, 3 April 2020. Raquel is still alive and will be instrumental this season. The series is a four-part modern-day reimagination of the “Great Spanish Robbery”. Visualize a flawless heist: no civilian casualties, no credit from anyone, and still the thieves steer clear with billions of euros, too irrational?
La Casa de Papel (Money Heist) is more than a mere gimmick in the cinematic universe of bank robberies; intrinsically it encapsulates the entire essence of revolution, raging against the system. To call it a minor theft-based tv show wouldn’t do justice to the idea they have been trying to propagate. Modern-day critique of the justice system juxtaposed with multitudes of surreal themes makes this an absolute fan favorite.
What Did The Trailer Reveal To Us
From Baudrillard’s simulacra to Brecht’s alienation effect, from Game theory to Dali masks, from Bach to Bella Ciao; Money Heist has treated the viewers with an ideal reward. The cuisine of pop culture infused with a tinge of performative deception arrested our attention for every second of that trailer. Without any delay, we will get right into it, frame by frame.
The trailer ended with the words, “this is more than a heist” before which we are treated to a short sequence of Berlin knifing a foil character, classic clickbait technique to gain our suspense.
Nairobi is losing her life every second, while the rest of the team start bickering and shifting blame. Outside the doors, the system is reloading their ammunition and planning an all-out offensive. This time, they have Raquel Murillo and using her as leverage they are going to infiltrate the structure.
All Hope Is Not Lost
The professor is losing his mind, and his mind is his greatest weapon. The situation is unprecedented and thus, during the montage where we see multiple sequences of bullets firing, along with the fitting escape of hostage assassins (special ops) – we are worried about our precious band of anti-heroes.
This quick trailer showed Tokyo (Úrsula Corberó), Professor (Álvaro Morte), Rio (Miguel Herrán), Lisbon (Itziar Ituño), Bogotá (Hovik Keuchkerian), Denver (Jaime Lorente), Marsella (Luka Peros) Stockholm (Esther Acebo), Palermo (Rodrigo De la Serna) and Helsinki (Darko Peric).
With April knocking right around the corner, we can only assume that La Casa de Papel (Money Heist) will conclude on a high note. The night is darkest right before the dawn, the stage is set, and the audience is poised.
