In the action-comedy Stuber (out July 12) a mild-mannered Uber driver named Stu (Kumail Nanjiani) picks up a passenger (Dave Bautista) who turns out to be a cop hot on the trail of a brutal killer.

“It’s basically a comedic Collateral,” Bautista told EW last year, while he was still shooting the film. “A surly old veteran detective holds an Uber driver hostage to help him chase around a drug dealer. The script is so funny. It’s really fresh. It’s original. It’s not slapstick. It’s got some good action, it’s got some good twists that make it not generic. It’s really a smart script. I think it’s going to be a really big hit. And Kumail’s just hysterical. He’s on fire right now.”

Stuber is directed by Michael Dowse and costars Iko Uwais, Natalie Morales, Betty Gilpin, Jimmy Tatro, Mira Sorvino, Karen Gillan.
