Gerard Butler is back with a new action thriller! In “Mayday”, signed Jean-François Richet, the actor will land his plane in the middle of a war zone. Check out the trailer above.
All Gégé, all Butler!
Gerard Butler is one of these actors that we particularly appreciate. Revealed to the general public with 300 (2007), the interpreter of Léonidas has in recent years chained series B action in a rather fun way. Indeed, if the majority of these productions are not masterpieces, the honesty with which Butler approaches them makes all the difference. One way to take on the unpretentious entertainment.
We have thus seen him as a cop oozing in Criminal Squad (2018), as a submarine commander in Hunter Killer (2018) or even as a hitman in copshop (2021) by Joe Carnahan. Also, the very good surprise came with the disaster movie Greenland (2020), alongside Morena Baccarin. Will this be the case with his next film may day ? That’s all we hope for.

The trailer of may day just revealed (in one article). This time, Gerard Butler will be a commercial pilot. But trouble pursues him since he will find himself in the middle of a storm with his plane. Fortunately, the hero will manage to land and save the passengers. Except that bad luck is in the middle of a war zone that he puts his machine down and then finds himself taken hostage with all the passengers.
In addition to the presence of Gerard Butler and his enticing plot, we are interested in may day because it marks the return of Jean-François Richet. After The Emperor of Paris (2018), the French director returns to an American production in the image of his BloodFather (2016) with Mel Gibson – another very nice B series. In the cast of the film, we also find Mike Colter, known for having played the New York superhero Luke Cage in the eponymous series.
may day will be released in theaters on January 25, 2023.
