"The only thing more dangerous than the mission is this team of Renegades."
The official trailer for EuropaCorp's upcoming Navy SEAL action flick, Renegades, has been released and it looks like a thrill ride of epic proportions. In the two minute clip, there's a slew of explosions, tanks wreaking havoc on the European terrain, and heavy gunfire.
"Do you have any idea the storm you created?" J.K. Simmons' character barks at the beginning of the trailer.
The group of five Navy SEALS likely do not have any idea kind of idea of the storm they are about to create because as the trailer goes on, the action gets extremely intense in what looks like a film that promises an edge of your seat heist.
The plot for the film follows a team of Navy SEALS on assignment in a war-stricken country in Europe in 1995. The group discovers the location of buried treasure at the bottom of a lake, which they explain is worth hundreds of millions of dollars. The SEALS go rogue in an effort to orchestrate a heist and then return the gold to its rightful owners. The plan goes awry when an enemy receives word of their plans and the boys only have 10 hours to successfully complete the mission.
"5 Navy SEALS. 1 impossible heist," the graphics on the trailer read.
