I don’t know what happened to John Travolta, but his newest film Speed Kills feels like a bad rip-off of Tom Cruise’s film American Made. Even though Speed Kills is also based on a true story (Particularly the 2013 true crime novel Speed Kills: Who Killed the Cigarette Boat King, the Fastest Man on the Seas? by Arthur Jay Harris), the synopsis couldn’t feel more bland:
Speedboat racing champion and multimillionaire, Ben Aronoff (Played by Travolta), leads a double life that lands him in trouble with the law and drug lords.
Today, the first trailer for the film has been released. Check it out below:
Speed Kills co-stars Kathryn Winnick, Matthew Modine, Kellan Lutz, James Remar, Jennifer Esposito, Jordi Molla, Amaury Nolasco, and Michael Weston. It is co-directed by John Luessenhop and Jodi Scurfield. It is set to hit theaters and VOD on November 16th. In addition, check out the new poster for the film below:
