‘Lift’ Trailer: Kevin Hart Leads A Team Of Thieves On An Impossible Job In Netflix’s Heist-Comedy

Somewhere out there the two really big fans of Me Time are smiling, because this morning sees the release of trailers for new films led by both Mark Wahlberg (The Family Plan) and his co-star in that 2022 comedy, Kevin Hart. In Hart’s case, he’s leading Netflix’s upcoming heist comedy, Lift, which finds him leading an international band of thieves on an impossible job.

Would you trust an impossible heist to Kevin Hart?

As seen in the trailer for Lift, Hart plays Cyrus Whittaker, whose team is tasked with their biggest score yet. Only this job is going to need to be pulled off at 40,000 feet aboard a passenger plane.

Joining Hart are a bunch of well-known co-stars with a lot of franchise experience, and that’s probably not a coincidence. Gugu Mbatha-Raw (Loki), Vincent D’Onofrio (Daredevil), Úrsula Corberó (Snake Eyes), Billy Magnussen (No Time to Die), Jacob Batalon (Spider-Man trilogy), Jean Reno (The Professional), Sam Worthington (Avatar), and Burn Gorman (Pacific Rim) co-star.

Behind the camera is another guy with a ton of experience with action flicks, F. Gary Gray, who directed The Fate of the Furious, The Italian Job, and more.

The synopsis is appropriately light: An international heist crew led by Cyrus Whitaker (Kevin Hart) races to lift $500 million in gold from a passenger plane at 40,000 feet.

You know Netflix is dying for there to be sequels. We’ll see if it’s possible when Lift hits the streamer on January 12th 2024.
