Michael Bay's Netflix Action Movie 6 Underground Gets Ridiculous First Trailer
Bring on the Bayhem!
Michael Bay is best known these days for the Transformers movies, but he also has a long list of hugely successful, non-robotic action movies on his filmography. From The Rock and Armageddon to Bad Boys and its sequel, Bay's brand of big budget over-the-top mayhem defined Hollywood action in the '90s and beyond. His next film returns him to his roots; it's titled 6 Underground and hits Netflix in December. The first trailer has been released.
6 Underground stars Ryan Reynolds as part of a wealthy vigilante gang who fake their own deaths in order to go under-the-radar and take down a criminal group. It looks ridiculous in all the right ways, with exotic locations, incredible stunts, and the sort of wise-cracking dialogue you'd expect from Deadpool writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick. Check it out below:
6 Underground also stars Dave Franco (Neighbors), Mélanie Laurent (Inglourious Basterds), Adria Arjona (Pacific Rim: Uprising), Ben Hardy (X-Men: Apocalypse), and Corey Hawkins (BlackKklansman). It hits Netflix on December 13.
In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Bay spoke about how the film gets him back to the type of movie he made his name with. "My crew would call it 'the old-school Bay,'" he said. "It's like the movies I did way back when where it's got real action, it's tough, it's funny, it's got an interesting style to the movie. The writers, Wernick and Rheese, who I've always wanted to work with, they've got a great sense of humor and there's a great style we created for the movie."
In related news, there's also a third Bad Boys movie on the way. While Bay directed the first two films, Bay Boys For Life is helmed by Bilall Fallah and Adil El Arbi. It reunites Will Smith and Martin Lawrence and arrives in January 2020. Check the first trailer out here.
