Michael Bay is directing the most expensive Netflix film ever made.
Michael Bay has directed some of the most destructive car chases in movie history, from a Hummer causing carnage in San Francisco in 'The Rock', to the crazy freeway chase in 'Bad Boys 2' featuring a Ferrari 550 Maranello dodging cars being thrown from a moving transporter. The director is famous for his appetite for destruction and explosive action scenes. Most car chase scenes directed by Bay result in dozens of cars being wrecked. After directing 'Transformers: The Last Knight', Michael Bay is making his Netflix feature film debut with his new movie '6 Underground.'
The film was reportedly made on a budget of $150 million, making it the most expensive Netflix film ever made. Just imagine the carnage Bay can cause with that much money to play with.
After announcing the film last year, Netflix has released the first trailer for 6 Underground, giving us a sneak peek at the film's destructive car chase scene. We get to see a lime green Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio burn rubber while being chased by a Maserati Quattroporte among other vehicles, which inevitably get destroyed in some spectacular stunts. In a separate scene, a fleet of Range Rovers get taken out by some fighter jets. A Ferrari 488 Pista and Rolls-Royce Ghost also appear in the trailer.
Behind the scenes footage confirms the chase in 6 Underground was filmed in Florence, Italy and shows the Alfa Romeo Giulia tearing through narrow streets and alleyways. Tires screech, pedestrians scramble out of the way, and cars flip over. Unlike the Fast & Furious movies that have become increasingly reliant on CGI, these stunts were all done for real. This could be one of the best movie car chases of the year and will almost certainly be the most destructive.
As for the plot, '6 Underground' centers on six billionaires who fake their own deaths and form a vigilante squad to take down criminals, according to the film's brief synopsis. Starring Ryan Reynolds, 6 Underground will stream on Netflix on December 13.
