A new clip from the upcoming action movie Final Score shows Dave Bautista dodging bullets while riding a motorcycle. This sequence precedes an even more impressive feat, involving a death-defying jump and Screen Rant has the exclusive!
Described as "Die Hard in a football stadium, " Final Score first went into production at Saban Studios in February 2016. Bautista was the first of the core cast to be hired for the movie, which was largely filmed during the summer of 2016 at The Boleyn Ground in Upton Park, East London. The movie also stars Ray Stevenson, Pierce Brosnan, Lara Peake, Alexandra Dinu and Craig Conway.
The exclusive clip, which can be viewed below, depicts a full scene that was shown briefly in the first Final Score trailer. In it, Bautista is drives a motorcycle while dodging bullets from a lethal pursuer. Bautista then attempts a daring jump, in order to escape from his attacker (Alexandra Dinu) while she is in the middle of reloading her weapon. This all occurs over the heads of an oblivious crowd, who drown out the sounds of gunfire and are too intently focused upon the football match to notice a man on a motorcycle driving around on the top of the stands.
The plot of Final Score centers upon Michael Knox (Bautista) - an ex-soldier in the wrong place at the wrong time. When a criminal gang led by a man named Arkady (Ray Stevenson) takes an entire stadium full of civilians hostage during a major sporting event, Knox is recruited by the terrorists to find a mysterious man named Dimitri (Pierce Brosnan) who is hiding somewhere in the crowd. With the daughter of a fallen comrade (Lara Peake), whom he swore to look after at risk, along with 35,000 other innocents, Knox will find his military training tested like never before, as he moves into action to do what the police cannot.
While Final Score may be based upon a classic premise, the above action sequence highlights a unique execution to what might have been an otherwise formulaic film on paper. If nothing else, Bautista offers a distinctive presence as Michael Knox, showing the same inherent charisma that made him a fan favorite in the Guardians of the Galaxy movies. The studios seem to agree with the fans, with Bautista slated to star in the upcoming Fox Studios action/comedy Stuber, in addition to continuing to portray the character of Trent Derosa in the Escape Plan series, which has a third film due out in 2019.
Final Score opens in theaters and will be available on VOD and Digital HD on September 14, 2018.
