Bringing in the storyline of the movie, the mobile ad allows users to choose between a cop and a gangster by tilting the phone left and right.

The closing screen seamlessly displays the movie trailer, and the CTA ‘Subscribe Now’. This directs users to the landing page, where they can begin their subscription to the streaming service to watch the movie.
