ScreenCrush's E. Oliver Whitney stumbled across these badly Photoshopped posters of an upcoming Travolta project called "Speed Kills," with such winning taglines as "Big Money," "Fast Friends," and "Breaking Hearts." But are they real?
But is this real? As real as any of Nicolas Cage's recent gonzo action films.
"Speed Kills" is an upcoming feature film and the "Speed Kills VR Experience" is a 360-degree experience that was shot at the same time as the movie and is already on Oculus, the Google Play store, and Apple’s app store .
And it's all based on the true story of a guy who built the fastest speed boat ever, which was used by both the US Coast Guard and drug smugglers from the '60s through the '80s.
How did Travolta end up in this mess? Perhaps the opening line in the trailer is the key: "Sometimes it doesn't matter who you are, what you have. It's just too hard to say no."
The movie is reportedly getting a theatrical release on November 16, 2018.
