The first trailer for Michael Bay’s new film Ambulance is here, and it’s… Well, probably exactly what you expect, honestly.
(Do you wanna see stuff blow up? You’re gonna see stuff blow up.)
The film tells the story of a bank-heist-gone-wrong, resulting in a city-wide chase and a showdown between cops and robbers. Check out your first look at Ambulance now in the trailer below.
The movie stars Jake Gyllenhaal as adoptive brothers Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, who get caught up in this ambulance-hijacking high-speed chase. Here’s the official synopsis of the movie from NBC Universal:
Over one day across the streets of L.A., three lives will change forever.
In this breakneck thriller from director-producer Michael Bay, decorated veteran Will Sharp (Emmy winner Abdul-Mateen II), desperate for money to cover his wife’s medical bills, asks for help from the one person he knows he shouldn’t—his adoptive brother Danny (Oscar® nominee Gyllenhaal). A charismatic career criminal, Danny instead offers him a score: the biggest bank heist in Los Angeles history: $32 million. With his wife’s survival on the line, Will can’t say no.
But when their getaway goes spectacularly wrong, the desperate brothers hijack an ambulance with a wounded cop clinging to life and ace EMT Cam Thompson (Eiza González) onboard. In a high-speed pursuit that never stops, Will and Danny must evade a massive, city-wide law enforcement response, keep their hostages alive, and somehow try not to kill each other, all while executing the most insane escape L.A. has ever seen.
Ambulance comes from a screenplay by Chris Fedak (Prodigal Son, Chuck), based on the original story and Danish film Ambulancen.
