The Transporter series is a guilty pleasure here at FTN Towers – yes, really – but it’s mostly down to our unhealthy fascination with Jason Statham – yes, really too.
This new Transporter stars Game of Thrones actor Ed Skrein as Frank Martin, the role played in the first three movies by The Stathe and, well, he’s a bit dull in the trailer, if we’re honest.
That said, the saction and madness feels the same… maybe too similar? We’ll find out this fall…
The producers of Lucy and the Taken trilogy bring you the next adrenaline-fueled installment of The Transporter series, THE TRANSPORTER REFUELED, starring newcomer Ed Skrein as Frank Martin, the most highly-skilled transporter money can buy. The stakes are greater and technology better, but the same three simple rules apply: never change the deal, no names and never open the package.
When Frank is hired by cunning femme fatale Anna and her three stunning sidekicks, he quickly discovers he’s been played. Anna and her cohorts have kidnapped his father (Ray Stevenson) in order to coerce Frank into helping them take down a ruthless group of Russian human traffickers. Fueled by revenge, he will break all his rules and stop at nothing to rescue his father in this action-packed thrill ride across the French Riviera.
