accelerationThe Movie Partnership have confirmed that the adrenaline fuelled action-thriller, Acceleration will be released across all digital platforms from 6th April.

Acceleration stars a host of action veterans including Dolph Lundgren (Rocky IV, The Expendables), Danny Trejo (Machete, From Dust Till Dawn) & Quinton ‘Rampage’ Jackson (The A-Team).

Vladik Zorich (Dolph Lundgren), a crime lord whose tentacles permeate the underbelly of a seedy Los Angeles as he deals in guns, gambling, drugs and skin trafficking, finds himself double-crossed by his most trusted operative Rhona Zyocki (Natalie Burn).

Vladik’s propensity for power, control, and violence drives him to kidnap Rhona’s young son. To ensure her son’s release, Rhona is forced to participate in a planned elimination of Vladik’s enemies and allies. As her son’s life hangs in the balance, Rhona struggles to find and eliminate Vladik’s most violent and twisted enemies and retrieve valuable goods and information, all in one fateful night.

To keep her on a short leash, Vladik sets out the “rules” to his “game” and oversees Rhona’s every move as she navigates the darkened streets of Los Angeles. However, Vladik underestimates the power of a mother’s love — and finds himself losing control as his devious plan slowly unravels.

Acceleration will be available on Digital Download from 6th April and can be Pre-Ordered.

vfwThe Movie Partnership & FANGORIA are excited to announce that their latest action-horror, VFW, will be celebrating its UK Premiere at FrightFest Glasgow 2020 on Saturday 7th March at the Glasgow Film Theatre ahead of its Digital Download release on 9th March.

Acclaimed Horror director Joe Begos (Almost Human, Bliss) & producers Amanda Presmyk (Dragged Across Concrete) & Dallas Sonnier (Bone Tomahawk) bring together this “insanely fun cast” (Bloody Disgusting) in “a gory and fun throwback to ’80s punk rock action movies” (Flickering Myth). VFW assembles cult film royalty featuring performances from Martin Kove (Karate Kid), Stephen Lang (Avatar), Fred Williamson (From Dusk Till Dawn) & William Sadler (Die Hard 2).

The film is set in the near future where the city has been reduced to a dystopian wasteland due to the scourge of “Hype,” a powerful narcotic that induces a simultaneous euphoric and aggressive state in its users. Kingpin Boz (Travis Hammer) impulsively asks a hyper to commit suicide for his own amusement; later, the girl’s teenage sister, Lizard (Sierra McCormick), slips into Boz’s lair and steals his Hype supply in revenge.

Lizard flees across the street to a decaying VFW hall, where she encounters Vietnam veteran Fred Parras (Stephen Lang) and a contingent of ageing soldiers who spend their days reminiscing about their lost youth, growing irrelevancy, and impending deaths. Presented with a final battle and opportunity to go down fighting rather than pass away ignominiously from old age, Fred and his men decide to protect Lizard and wage a final war against Boz, his henchmen, and the hypers.

VFW premiere tickets will be on sale from 12pm Monday 3rd February, via the festival website here: www.glasgowfilm.org/festival! However, don’t forget FrightFest also has weekend passes which will be on sale from Monday 20th January grab them quick to make sure you don’t miss out on any of the gore.

VFW will be celebrating its UK premiere 9pm on Saturday 7th March at the Glasgow Film Theatre & will be available on Digital Download from 9th March.

UK VOD Release: The Prey

thepreyLightbulb Film Distribution are excited to share the official trailer and poster for upcoming survival-thriller feature, The Prey.

Described as Cambodia’s first $1M-budgeted action movie, the film will be available On Demand and download across all major digital platforms from October 7th, including iTunes, Amazon, Sky Store, Virgin Media and Google Play.

Directed by Jimmy Henderson (Jailbreak), newcomer Gu Shangwei and Vithaya Pansringarm (Only God Forgives, The Last Executioner) lead an International cast, with fight choreography handled by Jean-Paul Ly (Nightshooters, Doctor Strange).

Xin (Shangwei) is an undercover Chinese detective. When the criminals that he is investigating are arrested, he is mistakenly sent with them to a remote Cambodian prison. He quickly discovers that the warden (Pansringarm) has no intention of rehabilitating the prisoners, instead offering wealthy businessmen the ultimate hunting experience; human prey. Xin has no choice but to fight for his freedom in a brutal and sadistic game of hunter verses prey.

Commenting on the release, Peter Thompson, Sales & Acquisitions Director at Lightbulb Film Distribution, said: “We are delighted to be releasing The Prey in the UK. As fans of the director’s last film, Jailbreak, we thought we knew what to expect – but Henderson delivers even more intense violence and spectacular martial arts. It’s 90 minutes of fast-paced action, which will more than satisfy genre fans.”

The Prey will be available on Digital Download from 7th October and can be pre-orderered on iTunes
