Michael Bay’s quintessential Michael Bay new movie, “6 Underground,” will be unleashed on Dec. 13 — just in time for the holidays and awards consideration, star Ryan Reynolds announced on Twitter Tuesday.
Reynolds also dropped the first trailer for the action film, which promised to look “so f—ing dangerous.”
“For your consideration comes the haunting story of One (Ryan Reynolds), a brooding, beautiful and sarcastic man, who vows to take his pain and channel it into changing the world for the better,” the star writes in typically brooding and sarcastic fashion. He also hails Bay’s work on the film as an “ode to the great Italian neorealist Fellini.”
The “Deadpool” star even gave the film an alternate title that could plausibly be the title for any Michael Bay movie, “How Michael Bay Stopped Worrying and Loved Explosions More.”
Reynolds stars as a billionaire leading a team of six individuals who fake their deaths and form a vigilante squad to take down some extremely bad guys. Because what could possibly go wrong if the ultra rich took the law into their own hands?
“6 Underground” is based on an original idea and written by executive producers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, who are best known for their work on “Deadpool” and “Deadpool 2.”
The film also stars Corey Hawkins as “Five,” Manuel Garcia-Rulfo as “Three,” Dave Franco as “Two,” Adria Arjona as “Four,” and Ben Hardy as “Six.” (Reynolds plays “One,” in case you’re curious.) Lior Raz, Mélanie Laurent and Payman Maadi round out the main cast.
Skydance’s David Ellison, Dana Goldberg, and Don Granger produced “6 Underground” along Reynolds, Ian Brice and Bay.
Watch the trailer above.

For the record: A previous version of this story said that the film follows six billionaires. Only Reynolds’s character is a billionaire.
