New ‘Ambulance’ Trailer: Michael Bay Takes Jake Gyllenhaal & Yahya Abdul-Mateen II on a High-Speed Chase

Universal Pictures

A new trailer has arrived for Ambulance, the latest action extravaganza from director Michael Bay (Transformers, Armaggedon, The Rock).

A remake of the 2005 Danish film of the same name, Ambulance stars Jake Gyllenhaal and Yahya Abdul-Mateen II as two brothers who find themselves in a high-speed pursuit after a bank heist goes wrong. You see, desperate for cash, decorated veteran Will sharp (Abdul-Matten II) made the mistake of asking his career criminal adoptive bro, Danny (Gyllenhaal), for help. One thing leads to another, and they’re soon speeding across L.A. in an effort to evade law enforcement, in an ambulance, with a wounded cop, and a medic (Eiza González).

More of the expected “Bayhem” shown off in the trailer below, with big practical stunts and plenty of drama with our two fugitives. The trailer also features one of the film’s more chilled moments: Will and Danny vibing out to Christopher Cross track “Sailing”. Or, at least, they’re trying to. “It’s not chilling me out!” an exasperated Danny says. Yeah… guess the situation is a little tense.

Ambulance will be in Australian cinemas on April 7th and U.S. cinemas on April 8th. Take a look at the new trailer, as well as the film’s U.S. IMAX poster beneath it.

Official synopsis and rundown for Ambulance:

Over one day across the streets of L.A., three lives will change forever.


In this breakneck thriller from director-producer Michael Bay, decorated veteran Will Sharp (Emmy winner Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Candyman, The Matrix Resurrections), desperate for money to cover his wife’s medical bills, asks for help from the one person he knows he shouldn’t””his adoptive brother Danny (Oscar® nominee Jake Gyllenhaal, Zodiac, Spider-Man: Far From Home). A charismatic career criminal, Danny instead offers him a score: the biggest bank heist in Los Angeles history: $32 million. With his wife’s survival on the line, Will can’t say no.


But when their getaway goes spectacularly wrong, the desperate brothers hijack an ambulance with a wounded cop clinging to life and ace EMT Cam Thompson (Eiza González, Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw, Baby Driver) onboard. In a high-speed pursuit that never stops, Will and Danny must evade a massive, city-wide law enforcement response, keep their hostages alive, and somehow try not to kill each other, all while executing the most insane escape L.A. has ever seen.


Ambulance is produced by Michael Bay, p.g.a., Bradley J. Fischer, p.g.a.
