Kevin Hart has been many things, today he has a proposition for you. Behold as Netflix unearth the official First Trailer for heist action comedy, Lift. He’s recruiting anyone who joins him will get a piece of the gold, only side note, it’s 40,000 feet in the air!
No pressure on anyone. This project has been on the cards since 2021, reasons for the delay unknown (will not be surprised it’s thanks to a certain ‘pandemic’). It’s directed by F. Gary Gray (The Italian Job remake, Straight Outta Compton) with Hart leading the line as Cyrus Whitaker. He bands together a group of criminals with one thing on mind…Steal $500 million in Gold! The one big snag, the heist begins in the air!
We do learn quickly, Cyrus and his crew might be there for another reason. It looks like a past love has dragged him in, however we know this is perfect cover for his true motives.
Looks a fun film that looks inspired by The Fate Of The Furious and The Italian Job, 2 of Gray’s previous films. Will they be as bonkers as those aforementioned? The trailer shows not all the fun might be up in the air, but who owns the gold?
An international heist crew, led by Cyrus Whitaker (Kevin Hart), race to lift $500 million in gold from a passenger plane at 40,000 feet.
The ensembled Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Vincent D’Onofrio, Úrsula Corberó, Billy Magnussen, Jacob Batalon, Viveik Kalra, Yun Jee Kim, Burn Gorman, and Paul Anderson. Also join them is Jean Reno and Sam Worthington.
Lift will be streaming globally on Netflix from 12th January 2024. The new year pardon the expression, we all need a ‘lift’ could this do it for everyone?
