October has been one of the busiest months of the year for new Netflix Original films. One of the most highly anticipated films of the month that is scheduled to arrive tomorrow, Friday the 18th of October, is Steven Soderbergh’s The Laundromat. Here’s what time The Laundromat will be on Netflix.
The Laundromat is an upcoming Netflix Original biographical comedy-drama based on the screenplay written by Scott Z. Burns. Steven Soderbergh returned to direct his second Netflix Original after High Flying Bird, except this time around he restrained from filming on an iPhone.
When her idyllic vacation takes an unthinkable turn, Ellen Martin begins investigating a fake insurance policy, only to find herself down a rabbit hole of questionable dealings that can be linked to a Panama City law firm and its vested interest in helping the world’s wealthiest citizens amass larger fortunes. Founding partners Jürgen Mossack and Ramón Fonseca are experts in the seductive ways shell companies and offshore accounts help the rich and powerful prosper. They are about to show us that Ellen’s predicament only hints at the tax evasion, bribery, and other illicit absurdities that the super-wealthy indulge in to support the world’s corrupt financial system

Will the lawsuit affect the release of The Laundromat?
From what we gather the release of the film won’t be impeded by the Lawsuit.
What is the lawsuit against Netflix?
It was recently reported by Deadline that a lawsuit had been filed against Netflix.
The lawsuit against Netflix is for libel and trademark infringement. Netflix based the film on the real-life partners of the now-dissolved Panamanian Law Firm Moassck Fonesca & Co, Jürgen Mossack and Ramón Fonseca (Portrayed by Gary Oldman and Antonio Banderas) are seeking damages and injunctive relief.
A transcript from the suit has detailed why the firm has filed the lawsuit:
defames and portrays the Plaintiffs as ruthless uncaring lawyers who are involved in money laundering, tax evasion, bribery and/or other criminal conduct. The implications and innuendo converge to cast Plaintiffs in the light of mastermind criminals whose crimes include, but are not limited to, murder, bribery, money laundering and/or corruption. Defendant’s trailer and movie have clearly defamed the Plaintiffs and cast them in the false light of criminality.
A temporary restraining order that would stop Netflix releasing the film without disclaimers has been requested by the plaintiffs. Netflix filed a motion to dismiss the case or transfer it to the ‘United States District Court for the Central District of California.’
