Action comedy Stuber stars Kumail Nanjiani and Dave Bautista, but does it include an end-credits scene setting up a potential sequel? Directed by Michael Dowse (What If, Goon) from a script by Tripper Clancy (Hot Dog, Four Against the Bank), the movie follows an Uber driver desperate for a five-star rating and the LAPD detective that ropes him into tracking down a drug kingpin. As seen in the Stuber trailers, Nanjiani stars as Stu the anxious Uber driver - who receives the nickname Stuber from an obnoxious coworker - and Bautista as Vic the macho detective.
After holding its world premiere at South by Southwest earlier this year, Stuber is now finally hitting theaters. Though originally a 20th Century Fox movie, Stuber is now being released by Walt Disney Studios after it was acquired as part of the Disney-Fox deal that finalized in March. As such, it becomes the first R-rated movie Disney has released in a number of years. Now, those curious about the Nanjiani and Bautista buddy action comedy can check Stuber out for themselves in theaters.
Some moviegoers may be wondering whether the movie has a post-credits scene. Unfortunately, Stuber does NOT have an end-credits scene or any other kind of final tease or joke. While a movie's credits are always worth watching to see who was involved in making it, those checking out Stuber shouldn't expect any kind of post-credits scene at the very end of the film.
We won't spoil the ending of Stuber for those who haven't seen it yet, but it does wrap up the movie's main storyline sufficiently - meaning there isn't any obvious setup for a potential sequel anyway. Of course, if Stuber were to become immensely successful among viewers and at the box office, it's possible the studio would consider a followup. However, the Stuber reviews haven't been overwhelmingly positive and it remains to be seen how well the movie connects with the public. But without a post-credits scene directly setting up a sequel, at least Stuber doesn't fall into the trap of other films that did the same and ended up never following through on those sequel promises.
Certainly, a post-credits scene doesn't necessarily have to be used to set up a sequel, it could simply showcase an extra funny scene between the characters. That would've made sense for Stuber, but it isn't the case here. So as moviegoers check out Nanjiani and Bautista's buddy comedy in theaters, all they need to know is that there's no Stuber end-credits scene to look out for at the end of the film.
