Dolph Lundgren’s rise back to action movie prominence, thanks in part to The Expendables series, continues with the upcoming sci-fi action-horror flick Battle of the Damned, which is being released by Anchor Bay Films.
Lundgren stars as a military operative sent to rescue a young woman from a remote city that lay in ruin, and finds a host of zombies, a rag-tag group of survivors, and a batch of malfunctioning robots who may just save the day.
Along with Lundgren, the film features Melanie Zanetti, Matt Doran and David Field, and is written and directed by Christopher Hatton. You can check out the full synopsis and the red band trailer below.
In the near future on the outskirts of civilization a remote test facility lays in ruin following a catastrophic security breach. All that remains is a handful of survivors, their small armory of weapons and a fleet of the infected.
The breach led to a viral outbreak that left thousands dead or mutated. Now the infected walk the land, stalking the few that still live. Led by private military operative Max Gatling (Lundgren), they fight the infected and soon learn there are band of malfunctioning prototype robots also on the march and they are armed and incredibly dangerous.
Battle of Damned arrives on Blu-ray and DVD February 18th, 2014.
