Bushwick Hits Back With a New Trailer Starring Dave Bautista
It’s Guardians of the Galaxy star Dave Bautista versus an entire Texas battalion in New York City in this all-out action thriller, Bushwick, from the makers of Cooties and Stake Land.
Lucy (Brittany Snow) emerges from a Brooklyn subway to find that her neighbourhood is under attack by black-clad military soldiers. She crosses paths with an ex-Marine corpsman, Stupe (Dave Bautista), who reluctantly helps her fight for survival through a civil war, as Texas attempts to secede from the United States of America.
Let’ s face it folks in the high-octane movies that have been hitting the cinemas over the last few years action movie stars don’t come much bigger than Dave Bautista, who many of us know as Drax from the smash hit Guardians of the Galaxy series and the villainous Hinx from the latest James Bond film Spectre.
In Bushwick Bautista is at the front of the action as Stupe, a take no prisoners ex-Marine on the warpath against a Texas militia invading New York, Bushwick establishes Bautista – soon to be seen in Blade Runner 2049 – as an action hero on a par with Vin Diesel and The Rock.
Brittany Snow, from the Pitch Perfect movies, excels as Lucy, who, out of sheer necessity when her neighbourhood is suddenly transformed into a dangerous war zone, transforms into a fierce fighting machine alongside Stupe.
Brilliantly directed by Cary Murnion and Jonathan Milott, the team behind the cult horror hit Cooties, here deploying some superbly realised action set pieces and imbuing proceedings with a paranoid, anarchic feel; and expertly scripted by Nick Damici (Stake Land, We Are What We Are) – the red-hot writer of the similarly themed apocalyptic thrillers Stake Land 1 and 2, Texas noir classic Cold In July, and hit series Hap and Leonard – the film is, terrifyingly, inspired by real events.
Bushwick is a timely, chilling look at the landscape of America right now, as well as a full-bore urban actioner that mixes elements of The Warriors and Escape From New York. It hits the ground running with an extraordinary opening sequence, and doesn’t let up until the end credits roll.
Bushwickwill be released in selected cinemas on the 25th August 2017 and will also be released on DVD and Blu-ray on the 23rd October 2017.
