There’s a wealthy cinematic historical past of film duos – Butch Cassidy And The Sundance Child, Thelma And Louise… Turner And Hooch? Even higher is an action-movie duo – and new comedic explosion-fest Hidden Strike pairs up martial arts legend Jackie Chan with wrestler-turned-superhero John Cena. A brand new trailer is on-line now – buckle up for some mayhem, and watch it beneath.
That is the movie initially introduced in 2017 as Ex-Baghdad, at which level the central double-act was Chan and Sylvester Stallone. Stallone was out and Cena got here in a yr later, when the title grew to become Undertaking X-Traction (maybe as a nod to the basic Chan Undertaking A movies). At yet one more level it was titled SNAFU (an acronym for Standing Nominal: All Fucked Up). The plot has stayed the identical, although – Chan is taking part in a Chinese language non-public safety contractor known as into extract oil employees from a China-run oil refinery within the Center East when it is attacked. However that is a smokescreen for an oil heist, and Chan’s character wants the assistance of an American former Marine (Cena) to cease the thieves.
Arash Amel (A Non-public Conflict) wrote the screenplay, and the director is Scott Waugh, the previous stuntman who made Act Of Valor, Want For Pace and the upcoming Expendables 4. Relaxation assured, that is most definitely a person who is aware of easy methods to drive quick and blow shit up. There’s no launch date confirmed for Hidden Strike to date, however it can blast onto our screens later this yr.
