For some the biggest draw about the new Netflix movie, Lift, might be Kevin Hart. And if that’s the case, you do you. But for us, it’s 100% Gugu Mbatha-Raw. After Loki, we admit we’ll just consume everything she’s starring in. She doesn’t even have to be the good guy — in fact, we might even like it better when she isn’t.
We don’t really want to unpack that, thank you very much.
But also, heist movies! They’re fun. And this one well, it looks like it’ll be just that, fun. If there’s anything we need more of in our lives, it’s movies that are just a good time.
You can check out the trailer and synopsis below:
An international heist crew, led by Cyrus Whitaker (Kevin Hart), race to lift $500 million in gold from a passenger plane at 40,000 feet. Directed by F. Gary Gray and starring Kevin Hart, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Vincent D’Onofrio, Úrsula Corberó, Billy Magnussen, Viveik Kalra, Yun Jee Kim, and Sam Worthington.
Lift lands on Netflix, January 12.
