Another highlight from the reel – which is just over three minutes long – is a peek at Ryan Gosling and Chris Evans in The Gray Man.

The eagerly anticipated movie is an adaptation of a novel by writer Mark Greaney and follows Court Gentry (Gosling), an assassin who is being hunted by Lloyd Hansen, who is played by Captain America actor Evans.

When the film was first announced there were reports that it would be one of Netflix’s most expensive yet.

The teaser also offers a brief look at Lindsay Lohan in what is set to be her movie comeback, Falling For Christmas.
