Of course, everyone has their opinions when it comes to great actors and actresses, but there are also some people that you absolutely can't deny have talent - people like Leonardo DiCaprio, Robert De Niro, Meryl Streep, and Jessica Lange come to mind. The Laundromat on Netflix Canada stars Meryl Streep and your other favourite actors.

Earlier today, Netflix released a trailer for yet another original film called The Laundromat. The movie is an adaptation of a non-fiction book by Jake Bernstein called Secrecy World. It tells the story of a group of journalists that uncover illegal money networks wrapped up in the middle of the Panama Papers.

If you're not familiar, the Panama Papers are a group of documents that exposed a ton of financial fraud that was happening in the legal world. Essentially, major companies were setting up offshore accounts that allowed them to skip out on paying taxes, which, in turn, seriously impacted average citizens with low incomes.

In The Laundromat, Streep plays a middle-class woman that's been cheated out of money that she's owed. When she begins asking questions about the situation, she finds out that the answer is much bigger than she could've ever anticipated. Even just from the trailer alone, people are expecting big things from this role, including some Oscar nominations.

Netflix also brought in some other serious talent for the movie including Academy Award winner Gary Oldman, Antonio Banderas, Matthias Schoenaerts, Jeffrey Wright, David Schwimmer, and Sharon Stone, just to name a few, so we're anticipating a highly entertaining show.

Although we haven't received an exact release date for the star-studded movie yet, Netflix users can expect to stream The Laundromat sometime this fall. In the meantime, you can check out the trailer for yourself below.
