Vehicle 19 Trailers

Paul Walker goes fast; is furious

Car rental companies, eh? If they’re not trying to charge you for unnecessary extras, fobbing you off with a wonky GPS or landing you with a lemon, they’re giving you the wrong car, one tied to a massive criminal conspiracy. All right, so perhaps not so much with that last one usually. But that’s the situation Paul Walker finds himself in in the trailer for Vehicle 19.

Walker plays a man who arrives in South Africa after being paroled, intent on working things out with his ex-wife. When he realises he’s been given a minivan instead of the sedan he reserved, he decides to just go with it. But then a mobile phone stashed in the vehicle sends him a text. And he finds a gun. And a young woman tied up behind the back seats…

Turns out our hero has unknowingly stumbled into a plot by corrupt cops to kill the woman (Naima McLean) who has found evidence of their dirty dealings. Now, framed for crimes he didn’t commit, he’s alone in an unfamiliar city and must fight against the forces of law…

Given that Walker has spent years in the Fast & Furious franchise, we’d imagine he feels comfortable behind the wheel. Though this does look a little generic, the other trailer (aimed at Japanese audiences and embedded below), promised much vehicular mayhem.

With Mukunda Michael Dewil directing and writing, Vehicle 19 will hit Japan in February, and should be with us later in the year.
