While constantly striving to expand their reach to a global market, Netflix has unveiled the official trailer for its first Brazilian original feature film, "O Matador."

Set in the early 1900s, "O Matador" is a gritty western thriller about a skilled gunman who goes looking for his missing mentor but instead finds himself working for a ruthless French land baron as a hired assassin.

Portuguese actor Diogo Morgado, who portrayed Jesus Christ in the hit 10-part mini-series "The Bible" and its truncated feature film version "Son of God," stars as the film's main protagonist, Shaggy.

The cast also includes Portuguese actress Maria de Medeiros (Pulp Fiction, Henry & June), French actor Etienne Chicot (The Da Vinci Code), Brazilian TV actor Nill Marcondes, and Deto Montenegro.

Written and directed by Brazilian filmmaker Marcelo Galvao (Farewell, Colegas, Quarta B), "O Matador" will be released globally on Netflix beginning November 10th.

In a lawless land, Shaggy (Diogo Morgado), investigates the whereabouts of the bandit, Seven Ears (Deto Montegro). His search leads him back to civilization and ensures that in death, he finally learns how to live. His journey will bring him to discover that his violent past is a legacy that refuses to die alongside him.
