Atrocious Official Trailer for Death Match Film 'Arena' with Kellan Lutz
Last year you may remember hearing about a project called Deathsport (not related to the David Carradine classic), set to star Kellan Lutz as some "modern gladiator" and Samuel L. Jackson as the evil overlord making sure the battles are broadcast "for the entertainment of the online masses." Well it's finally here, thanks to YouTube (via Movieline) we have the first trailer for Arena, the new title for a film that might as well already be called one of the worst of the year. Remember how much you laughed watching Sam Jackson in Frank Miller's The Spirit? This is even worse. I suggest staying away, but you might have fun watching it.
Watch the newest official trailer for Jonah Loop's Arena, embedded via YouTube:
"There's no greater battle than the fight for your life." David Lord (Kellan Lutz) is forced into the savage world of a modern gladiator arena, where men fight to the death for entertainment of the online masses.
Arena is directed by first-time director Jonah Loop, a former visual effects supervisor making his feature debut. The script was written by Tony Giglio, based on an original screenplay by Michael Hultquist & Robert Martinez. This was produced by Motion Picture Corporation of America and shot down in Baton Rouge, Louisiana last year. As of right now, we have no idea when this is going to be released, if at all, and I'm honestly not sure if we really care to hear about when it will hit theaters anyway. Looks fun, doesn't it?
