Netflix has unveiled the first trailer for its upcoming comic book adaptation The Last Days of American Crime – and it looks pretty damn action-packed.

Based on Rick Remender and Greg Tocchini's 2009 graphic novel of the same name, it centres on career criminal Graham Bricke, who's struggling to get back in the game since the death of his brother.

Desperate for revenge against those responsible, he seeks out a man named Kevin Cash, who – along with a woman called Shelby Dupree – helps Bricke plan one last big heist before a mysterious government-made signal threatens to end all wrongdoing forever.

The teaser opens with a flashback to the robbery where Bricke's sibling met his demise, before cutting to his and Cash's first meet. Things get a little blood-soaked after that, with glimpses of headshots, high-speed car chases, explosions and a promise from Cash that "one of [them] is gonna take a bullet tonight".

Ramírez in particular is certainly no stranger to the crime thriller genre, having appeared in movies such as Gold, The Girl on the Train and The Counsellor, as well as portraying the ill-fated titular designer in Ryan Murphy's The Assassination of Gianni Versace.

He is set to feature opposite No Time to Die's Ana de Armas in Wasp Network, too – which is scheduled to land on the streaming platform on June 19.

The Last Days of American Crime will be available to stream from June 5.
