When Dave Bautista is not appearing as Guardian of the Galaxy Drax the Destroyer along with his Avengers chums, one of the nicest men in the business is keeping busy with a number of high profile roles. Having plied his trade in the likes of Spectre, Heist and Bushwick, the actor has recently impressed in Denis Villenueve’s Blade Runner 2049 and Drew Pearce’s intriguing Hotel Artemis.
We’ve got a neat little world exclusive image from Bautista’s forthcoming action thriller Final Score for you today. The film is directed by Scott Mann (Bautista’s director on Heist) from a script by David T. Lynch and Keith Lynch. Here’s a little taste of what’s to come…
The elevator pitch is Die Hard in a football stadium, and if there’s anyone who can save 35,000 people trapped by terrorists it’s Bautista. West Ham fans will notice that the location for this slice of kick-ass is Upton Park, the iconic former home of The Irons.
Joining Bautista in the film is former James Bond Pierce Brosnan, Julian Cheung, Russell Phillips and Alexandra Dinu. Final Score is being released in UK cinemas, and on Sky Cinema, on the 7th of September.
Here’s the exclusive image.
A group of heavily armed criminals take control of a stadium packed with 35,000 football fans. Ex-soldier Michael Knox (Dave Bautista) is forced to use skills from his military background and everything at his disposal to save the spectators, including the life of a fallen comrade’s daughter.
