Dave Bautista Enters a New Civil War in First Trailer for ‘Bushwick’
Film history is littered with films depicting the Civil War, but not many that imagine what would happen if another similar division in the United States broke out. We’ll get one this summer with Bushwick, which comes from directors Cary Murnion and Jonathan Milott. Edited together to look like it’s a single take, Dave Bautista and Brittany Snow lead the Brooklyn-set action thriller and now the first trailer has arrived.
“Just because you can make a film seemingly in one take doesn’t mean you should,” we said in our review. “In fact, the seams of Bushwick are so obvious I hope if it does enjoy a theatrical release, the film’s “cuts” ––often pushing the camera against a wall or into a dark hallway before magically adjusting the aperture — can inspire a drinking game at the Alamo or Nitehawk. Drinking game or not: beware, it’s going to be a sloppy evening.”
Also starring Angelic Zambrana and Jeremie Harris, check out the trailer and poster below.
When Lucy (Brittany Snow) steps off the subway, she walks into an utter bloodbath on the streets of Brooklyn’s Bushwick neighborhood. Texas is attempting to secede from the Union, and militia forces have descended upon New York City to claim it as an East Coast base of operations and negotiation tool. Faced with a flurry of whizzing bullets and total destruction around every corner, Lucy takes shelter in the basement of Stupe (Dave Bautista), a burly war veteran who reluctantly helps her traverse the treacherous five-block stretch of Bushwhack to reach her destination—assuming it’s still there.
Bushwick opens in theaters and on VOD on August 25.
