Lift Plot: What Will be the Plot of the Movie?
The official synopsis of Lift is as follows:
"An international heist crew is recruited to prevent a terrorist attack, and must pull off the heist on a plane mid-flight."
Kevin Hart is expected to play the main character of Lift as a master thief who has been tapped by his ex-girlfriend, presumably Gugu Mbatha-Raw, along with the FBI, to pull off a near-impossible heist that would be testing his skills.
How is this heist near-impossible? Well, aside from the difficulties of pulling off a heist on its own, it is set on a 777 plane while in the middle of a flight from London to Zurich.
This would require an international heist team that would have to prepare all its aspects to be able to pull it off. After all, doing a wrong to stop another wrong, kind of, makes it right, right? The heist is set up to stop a terrorist attack, making a heist team perfect for the job.
Where to Watch Lift?
The movie, Lift, will have an exclusive release on Netflix this August 25, 2023.
Netflix plans offers subscriptions depending on the inclusions, the number of people that could share the account, and the ads that comes with it. The Basic Plan costs $9.99 per month, the Standard Plan costs $15.99 per month, and the Premium Plan costs $19.99 per month.
Is There a Trailer for Lift?
Unfortunately, it is still too early to have a trailer of its own but the great news is that a preview for Lift has been included in the "Save The Date" video of Netflix for their 2023 roster which is enough to tease the audience of what is to come for the movie.
In the preview, a shot of a speedboat going through a canal starts the teaser of Lift, then it cuts to Kevin Hart talking to someone, then to a shot where he is fighting someone on a plane with a luggage versus a gun.
Then, there's Gugu Mbatha-Raw running to the canal, then it ends with Kevin Hart with a guy wearing a gold mask and a black cloak while on a boat.
While those are the only scenes revealed, Lift is already on the radar, especially for the heist lovers out there. As it comes out on August 25th this year, be sure to mark your calendars for its release!
