Red Notice opening scene

Red Notice’s opening scene features a narrator explaining what the treasure at the center of the film will be – Cleopatra’s eggs. As the exposition continues, the camera pans back to reveal that the introduction is actually a documentary being shown in the background of a busy lab.

The documentary introduces the artefacts explained to be a wedding present to the Egyptian queen from Marc Anthony.

Having discovered that the eggs existed in 1907, two of the eggs were then found by a farmer outside of Cairo and the premise of Red Notice involves our characters searching for the third.

As convincing as the story sounds, Red Notice producer, Hiram Garcia, confirmed that the story of Cleopatra’s eggs is completely fabricated for the film, thought up by the writer and director.

Who is the narrator in Red Notice?

The opening narrator of the fictional documentary is Robert Clotworthy – a famed American narrator and voice actor.

Clotworthy reportedly began his profession when he was just 15 years old when he would accompany his father – who was a producer of radio commercials – to recording sessions.
