Jake Gyllenhaal, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II and Eiza Gonzalez collaborate in upcoming thriller Ambulance, which is set to hit cinemas across the UK this coming weekend (March 25th, 2022).
Ahead of release, a final trailer for the movie has dropped, which you can watch below:
Three lives are set to change forever, over just one day across the streets of Los Angeles.
With decorated veteran Will Sharp (Abdul-Mateen II) willing to do whatever it takes to cover his wife’s expensive medical bills, he asks for help from adoptive brother Danny (Gyllenhaal), despite knowing that this career criminal could send his entire life into a tailspin.
Out of options, the former military man accepts Danny’s offer of getting in on a score; all he has to do is take part in and successfully help pull off the biggest bank heist in LA history, worth a cool $32 million.
Though things look to be going okay, it’s their getaway that goes wrong, when the desperate duo hijack an ambulance in a bid to escape. Unfortunately for them, there’s a wounded cop whose life hangs by a thread on board, as well as an ace EMT, Cam Thompson (Gonzalez).
Now in one of the most infamous pursuits the city has ever seen, city-wide law enforcement responds and the pair must do all they can to not only keep their hostages alive, but each other, whilst executing an utterly wild escape.
Michael Bay is sat in the director’s chair for this flick, so you can expect some high-stakes, action-packed scenes that don’t disappoint.
Putting his controversial former relationship with Taylor Swift aside, Gyllenhaal is one heck of an actor. He’ll have to pull out all of the stops to match up with the brilliance of Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, who is beyond a shadow of a doubt one of the most exciting stars of the modern day.
This final trailer has certainly tipped the scales in the right direction, at least for me. I was going to wait for a digital release or for the movie to drop on a streaming platform before seeing it, but now, I reckon I’ll go fill a cinema seat and watch it on the big screen.
Ambulance, written by Chris Fedack and based on the original story and screenplay for 2005 Danish thriller Ambulancen by Laurits Munch-Petersen and Lars Andrea Pedersen, will hit UK cinemas on Friday, March 25th, 2022.
