Michael Bay’s latest spectacular is heist action thriller Ambulance, and a new featurette gives us a preview of some of the incredible drone footage captured for it.
These “FPV” (first-person view) drones are able to pull off some absolutely stunning shots – check them out down the page a bit.
But first, the ICYMI stuff. Ambulance stars Jake Gyllenhaal, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II and Eiza González, and is based on the 2005 Danish film Ambulancen.
Here’s the official blurb: “Over one day across the streets of L.A., three lives will change forever. Decorated veteran Will Sharp (Abdul-Mateen II), desperate for money to cover his wife’s medical bills, asks for help from the one person he knows he shouldn’t—his adoptive brother Danny (Gyllenhaal). A charismatic career criminal, Danny instead offers him a score: the biggest bank heist in Los Angeles history: $32 million. With his wife’s survival on the line, Will can’t say no. But when their getaway goes spectacularly wrong, the desperate brothers hijack an ambulance with a wounded cop clinging to life and ace EMT Cam Thompson (Eiza González) onboard. In a high-speed pursuit that never stops, Will and Danny must evade a massive, city-wide law enforcement response, keep their hostages alive, and somehow try not to kill each other, all while executing the most insane escape L.A. has ever seen.”

Anyhoo, after being ramped for a couple of months, Ambulance is finally set to arrive in Australian cinemas from April 7. Now, it’s drone time:
