Universal City, California, May 17, 2022 – When an ambulance is hijacked by two brothers after a bank robbery gone wrong, they must make an escape through Los Angeles in AMBULANCE, available to own on Digital May 23, 2022 and on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-rayTM and DVD June 14, 2022 from Universal Pictures Home Entertainment. Directed by Michael Bay, the action maestro behind high-octane blockbusters such as Transformers and Armageddon, comes an “over-the-top thrill ride” (Nick Schager, The Daily Beast) featuring Jake Gyllenhaal, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, and Eiza González. Ambulance is being touted as “Bay’s best” (David Sims, The Atlantic) and is now packed with never-before-seen bonus content including six behind-the-scenes featurettes.

In this action thriller directed by Michael Bay, veteran Will Sharp (Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Candyman), desperate for money, turns to his adoptive brother Danny (Jake Gyllenhaal, End of Watch) for help. A career criminal, Danny instead offers him a huge score. But when their heist goes awry, the desperate brothers hijack an ambulance with a wounded cop and paramedic (Eiza González, Fast and Furious Presents Hobbs & Shaw) onboard. Will and Danny must evade a city-wide law enforcement response, keep their hostages alive, and somehow try not to kill each other, all while executing the most insane escape LA has ever seen.
