My last post on this, about a month ago, included an announcement that the film would be released on DVD, UNRATED, on September 13th, from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment.
A recap... it's Michael Jai White's directorial debut, a sequel to 2008's Never Back Down, titled Never Back Down 2: The Beatdown.
The first film co-starred Djimon Hounsou. It was poorly reviewed by critics, and managed a $41 million worldwide box office gross.
For the sequel, director White promised, a “darker installment… with a more of a ‘Dark Knight’ feel…"
Its synopsis: Four fighters from different backgrounds come together to train under an ex MMA rising star, and then ultimately have to fight each other and the traitor in heir midst.
White stars in the film too, as the above ex MMA rising star.
DVD bonus features will include: Deleted Scenes, Commentary with Director Michael Jai White.
It will retail at $26.99.
In anticipation of next Tuesday's release, here are 4 clips from the movie, released today, courtesy of Movieweb:
