The trailer for Arnold Schwarzenegger’s first motion comedy TV collection is right here. The Netflix authentic, titled FUBAR — an acronym for “fucked up past all restore” — follows Schwarzenegger as a ready-to-retire CIA agent who will get wrapped up in a single final mission.
FUBAR’s first trailer has Schwarzenegger returning to his motion film roots, flashing between scenes of the star hopping on a bike, zipping round in a sports activities automobile, and firing off a pistol. Right here’s Netflix’s synopsis of the present:
A CIA Operative on the verge of retirement discovers a household secret. Pressured to return into the sector for one final job, the collection tackles common household dynamics set in opposition to a worldwide backdrop of spies, motion and humor.
Apart from Schwarzenegger, the eight-episode collection may even star Monica Barbaro, Jay Baruchel, Fortune Feimster, Milan Carter, Travis Van Winkle, Gabriel Luna, Andy Buckley, Aparna Brielle, Barbara Eve Harris, and Fabiana Udenio.
“In all places I am going, folks ask me after I’m going to do one other large motion comedy like True Lies. Nicely, right here it’s,” Schwarzenegger says in a press release. “FUBAR will kick your ass and make you giggle — and never only for two hours. You get a complete season.”
True Lies, directed by James Cameron and co-starring Jamie Lee Curtis and Tom Arnold, continues to be the most effective American motion movies ever made — even almost 30 years on. So FUBAR has an exceptionally excessive bar to clear. A part of what made True Lies so compelling is the evolving relationship of Schwarzenegger and Curtis’ characters, and it’s unclear if this present will characteristic as compelling a relationship.
However the trailer does give us The Terminator jokes and a punch to the groin — different ’90s motion comedy staples — so who is aware of. Toss in a Harrier jet, and this may very well be a strong follow-up.
