Netflix has just released the first trailer for 6 Underground, Michael Bay’s debut film for the popular streaming service. It stars Ryan Reynolds and was written by Deadpool duo Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick.
The plot is pretty basic yet almost original until you break down what’s really going on: “Six billionaires fake their own deaths and form an elite vigilante squad in order to take down notorious criminals.”
So basically, the only difference between these vigilantes and Dom’s “family” in Fast and Furious is that these guys have more money than the F&F crew, not that the latter is ever short on resources. What is particularly interesting though is seeing all that juicy Michael Bay action, which already looks better (less CGI, more actual stunts) than anything we’ve witnessed in the previously-mentioned franchise.
As you can see, there is plenty of car action in the movie (not to mention fight scenes and other types of high-intensity moments) and one chase sequence even includes a green Alfa Romeo Giulia QV going up against an old Maserati Quattroporte
According to Collider, the movie had a budget in the $125 million ball park and was co-financed by Skydance Media, Netflix and Bay himself.
As for who else is part of the cast, we count Ben Hardy (Bohemian Rhapsody), Melanie Laurent (Inglourious Basterds) and Dave Franco (Now You See Me 1 & 2) – joining Reynolds.
6 Underground will begin streaming on Netflix later this year on December 13.
