6 Underground (Netflix)
Ryan Reynolds has teamed up with Transformers director Michael Bay and Deadpool writers Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese for what's been described as 'a high testosterone mission movie'. Alongside Reynolds, the film stars Good Omens actress Adria Arjona, Inglourious Basterds star Mélanie Laurent, If Beale Street Could Talk actor Dave Franco, BlacKkKlansman's Corey Hawkins and many more. The official synopsis read: Six individuals from all around the globe, each the very best at what they do, have been chosen not only for their skill, but for a unique desire to delete their pasts to change the future. The team is brought together by an enigmatic leader (Reynolds), whose sole mission in life is to ensure that, while he and his fellow operatives will never be remembered, their actions sure will.
Apparently @netflix now has a 'digital' arm, so you don't have to rewind at the end. Anyway, here's the 'digital' trailer for #6Underground A.K.A. "How Michael Bay Stopped Worrying and Love Explosions More." #digital pic.twitter.com/UcuDYCqpyJ— Ryan Reynolds (@VancityReynolds) October 1, 2019
