Above is the trailer for an upcoming film, “Venger,” co-presented by the G Brothers Mercedes-Benz dealership in Sydney and Petronas Lubricants International. It features a race car driver who seeks payback when his fiancee is murdered. Here’s the synopsis in full:
Following the murder of his fiancé, racecar driver Anthony McCullough becomes hellbent on revenge. Set loose by a ruthless detective, McCullough begins to follow a trail of clues. As he gets closer to finding the men responsible, he is drawn into a web of secrecy and betrayal that threatens to destroy his entire family.
The film is episode one in a planned three-part series, and it is going to feature a quartet of Mercedes-Benz vehicles as part of the promotion: the ML-Class SUV and Cabrio, the S-Class Saloon, and the E-Class. Things are bound to heat up in the sequel, what with all AMG models seeing screen time—even the SLS!

Venger was created as a branded content film for the G Brothers Mercedes-Benz dealership and Petronas Lubricants International by executive producers Marc Windon & Jesse Press of The Filmmakers Factory and writer/director Marc Furmie of FG Entertainment. The project was designed to merge strong storytelling and brand awareness with a concept that resonates with online audiences – eventually becoming the first episode in a web series. The screenplay was written by Marc Furmie, Shiyan Zheng and Vincent Andriano and follows a racecar driver’s mission for revenge following the death of his fiancé. Influenced by the classic action-revenge thrillers of the 70’s such as Bullitt, Death Wish and Dirty Harry, Venger showcases several current model Mercedes-Benz in an edgy and stylish framework.
The film was made possible by A-list crew, suppliers and facilities ranging from FG Entertainment, Tiger Tale Productions, Red Apple Camera Rentals, Cinoptix, The Lab Sydney, RedDot Sound Design, Steve Morris stunts and many, many more.
