The first week of August is set to be a week destined for British martial arts ace Scott Adkins. With the announcement of Boyka: Undisputed set for an August 1 release on DVD and Blu-Ray, another of his starrers will be hitting select theaters that Friday.
On August 4, XLrator Media will release Savage Dog, directed by Jesse V. Johnson. The film co-stars Cung Le, Juju Chan, and Marko Zaror.
Indochina, 1959. A Wild West town controlled by the criminal class: Vietnamese warlords and European war criminals. Den-Dhin-Chan Labor Camp is run by four such dangerous men. The worst prison in the land, it is here that a European, former-champion boxer Martin Tilman has made a name for himself fighting tournaments, on which wealthy criminals gamble in high stakes events. When Tilman is due for release, he just wants to return home, but the corrupt forces running the jail will do everything in their power to keep him locked down. When all that Tilman holds dear is taken away in a vicious act of violence, he is forced to confront the five men responsible and take his revenge.
Johnson also wrote the film with Luke LaFontaine serving as the film’s action choreographer.
Look out for Savage Dog in select theaters on August 4, then a VOD and iTunes release on August 8. Check out the trailer below:
