The first trailer for the upcoming movie “Traffik” was released Friday, and it’s awesome.
The plot of the film, according to the YouTube description, is:
Investigative journalist Brea Stephens goes on what is supposed to be a romantic getaway to a cabin in the woods with her boyfriend, John Wilson, but after a chance encounter with a suspicious gang at a secluded truck stop, they find themselves unknowingly in possession of a phone containing proof of the gang’s sex trafficking exploits. Caught in the crosshairs of the relentless crew, Brea and John are left with one mission: survival.
Wow, I am so in on this movie. There is literally zero chance I’m skipping a movie that involves a journalist in a fight for survival. Most of America thinks journalists are a bunch of weak jokes of human beings, and that’s a pretty fair assessment. However, I personally love guns, the wilderness and the idea of fighting off a biker game.
Hopefully, Paula Patton makes my profession look great. We definitely need to change the public perception, and Patton cracking skulls is a pretty solid start.
The other option is that I just write my own movie where I play the main character who is a sports blogger becoming the king of the internet and I fight off a bunch of bad guys. I think people would see a movie where Matthew McConaughey plays me. Sounds like money in the bank.
Until then, we’ll have to settle for “Traffik,” which will be released April 27.
