Jason Statham and Guy Ritchie reunite for the revenge thriller Wrath of Man. The pair previously worked together on Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels (1998), Snatch (2000), and Revolver (2005).

The upcoming film is based on the 2004 French film Cash Truck by Nicolas Boukhrief.

After a deadly ambush on one of its armoured cars, Los Angeles-based Fortico Securities hires a mysterious new employee, Patrick Hill (Statham), who becomes known simply as 'H'. As he learns the ropes from partner Bullet (Holt McCallany), H initially appears to be a quiet, keep-your-head down type simply there to do a job and earn a living. But when he and Bullet become the targets of an attempted robbery, H's formidable skills are revealed. Not only is he an expert marksman who's equally adept at hand-to-hand combat, but H is also fearless, ruthless, and lethal.

In the 1-minute clip, Jason does what he does best, dishing out punches and shooting up a storm. Rapper Post Malone also makes a cameo.


The film releases in SA cinemas on 23 April.
