Lift (2024)

After behind-the-scenes conflict marred the final cut of 2019’s Men In Black: International, director F. Gary Gray returns with a simpler premise for Lift. The story initially begins at an auction in Venice, where international thief Cyrus Whitaker (Kevin Hart) arrives to bid on an item. Keeping an eye on Cyrus is Interpol agent Abby Gladwell (Gugu Mbatha-Raw), although it becomes clear that this is part of the plan when Cyrus’ team evades the agents to simultaneously kidnap an NFT artist and steal a Van Gogh painting.
