Michael Bay movies aren’t exactly known for their subtlety. You don’t go to a Bay-directed or produced movie for clever dialogue or intricate character development.
No, you go to a Michael Bay movie for over-the-top explosions and high-octane action scenes. That’s just what you expect. What you don’t expect, however, is for actor Ryan Reynolds to just be calmly narrating these scenes as they happen in the background. But that’s exactly what happened in a behind-the-scenes moment during filming for the Netflix action film 6 Underground.
In a video posted to social media, Reynolds, who is the lead in the film, begins by getting into what he loves about working with the Transformers director.
“Best part about shooting with Michael Bay?” the 41-year-old actor said. “I don’t know, a lot of people would say the action. But for me it’s the stillness, you know? Those quiet moments.”
Of course, the Deadpool actor’s whole commentary is wildly tongue in cheek, as the rest of what Reynolds has to say is drowned out by a very Michael Bay-esque car crash.
Naturally, this video elicited a clever response from the official Netflix Twitter account.
The action movie, which also stars Dave Franco, Mélanie Laurent, Ben Hardy, and Corey Hawkins, was filmed in Florence, Italy, and is slated for a 2019 release. Not too much has been released about the new film, other than the fact that it’s an action thriller (obviously) and was written by Deadpool screenwriters Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese.
Not to dump out too many spoilers on you, but it’s a safe bet that there will be tons of action in this movie. And a lot of explosions. And also, as you can see, plenty of car crashes.
