Guardians of the Galaxy star Dave Bautista teams up with Silicon Valley’s Kumail Nanjiani for action buddy comedy Stuber.
When a mild-mannered driver named Stu (Kumail Nanjiani; “Silicon Valley”), oh I get the title now Stu+Uber=Stuber, picks up a passenger (Dave Bautista; Guardians of the Galaxy) who turns out to be a cop hot on the trail of a brutal killer, Stu is thrust into a harrowing ordeal in which he desperately tries to hold onto his wits, his life and his five-star rating. It’ll take more than snacks, a bottle of water and an iPhone charger for Stu to get out of this pickle.
Loaded with gut-busting laughs and visceral action that reframes the timeless buddy-comedy genre for modern audiences, the all-star cast includes Betty Gilpin (“GLOW”), Iko Uwais (The Raid: Redemption), Mira Sorvino (Mighty Aphrodite), Jimmy Tatro (“American Vandal”), Natalie Morales (“Abby’s”) and fellow Guardians of the Galaxy star Karen Gillan (Jumanji: The Next Level). In the grand tradition of buddy movies like 48 Hours, Lethal Weapon, The Last Boy Scout, and dozens more, Stuber throws two mismatched guys together to face impossible odds. Bautista has proven his comedic talents playing the lovable, yet haphazard, Drax in the Guardians and Avengers movies and Stuber offers more deadpan comedy that we know and love.
Bautista will be back on action-comedy duty early next year with My Spy arriving in cinemas on January 18. Meanwhile, Kumail Nanjiani rejoins his Pied Piper co-workers for the final season of Silicon Valley which begins on HBO on October 27th.
Bonus features include deleted scenes, a hilarious gag reel, audio commentary with director Michael Dowse (Goon) and Kumail Nanjiani and more! Stuber is available on Digital from November 4th before hitting DVD on November 14th.
