The Transporter: Refueled isn’t being touted as a sequel, a prequel, or a reboot, and that’s probably because continuity has never been much of a concern for fans of the series. As long as a Transporter movie delivers an onslaught of high-speed action, what else could you possibly want? Oh, right, Jason Statham. Presumably because the actor has graduated to bigger car-based franchises, Refueled substitutes the rugged anti-hero with the more posh Ed Skrein (the artist formerly known as Game Of Thrones’ Daario Naharis). Whether or not he’ll fill Statham’s shoes remains to be seen, but there’s no doubt the latest Transporter will still be full of the series’ bonkers, physics-defying thrills. The Transporter: Refueled hits theaters on September 4, but The A.V. Club and Europa have an opportunity for you to catch it on September 2 for free.

“Frank Martin (played by newcomer Ed Skrein), a former special-ops mercenary, is now living a less perilous life - or so he thinks - transporting classified packages for questionable people. When Frank’s father (Ray Stevenson) pays him a visit in the south of France, their father-son bonding weekend takes a turn for the worse when Frank is engaged by a cunning femme-fatale, Anna (Loan Chabanol), and her three seductive sidekicks to orchestrate the bank heist of the century. Frank must use his covert expertise and knowledge of fast cars, fast driving and fast women to outrun a sinister Russian kingpin, and worse than that, he is thrust into a dangerous game of chess with a team of gorgeous women out for revenge.”
