The team: five Special Forces vets played by Ben Affleck, Oscar Isaac, Charlie Hunnam, Garrett Hedlund, and Pedro Pascal. The objective: $75 million in real money having a place with an infamous South American cartel.
J.C. Chandor’s heist film Triple Frontier is a profound plunge into covetousness, following these men as they utilize the abilities sharpened in support of their nation to complete a touch of lawbreaking — putting their very own advantages first following quite a while of gambling everything for another person.
“We [wanted to] explore people under intense pressure and very great temptation,” Affleck tells EW. “[They] have a really strong set of morals but find those really tested in fire.”

Be that as it may, when they got the opportunity to set, they understood their preparation could just take them up until now.
“That was one of those things where you realize the difference between professional soldiers and actors,” Affleck says with a laugh. “We were just on the side of a mountain for two hours, and all of us were like, ‘We’re cold and we want to go home!’”
