Dolph Lundgren in New Trailer for Zombie Action Film 'Dead Trigger'

"They're everywhere!" Saban Films has released a new trailer for a terrible-looking zombie action film titled Dead Trigger, based on the mobile game of the same name first published in 2012. The film premiered in 2017 but is only now getting a release, and it's obvious once you see this footage why no one has touched it - despite Lundgren. When an unstoppable zombie apocalypse takes over the world, the government develops a video game, called "Dead Trigger," that mirrors the terrifying events plaguing the planet. The best efforts of the gamers are monitored, and they recruit the highest rated zombie killers. The young recruits are called “Dead Triggers”. This follows a group of recruits who travel to the origin of the outbreak to find a missing team of scientists searching for a cure. This stars Dolph Lundgren, Autumn Reeser, Romeo Miller, Isaiah Washington, Chris Galya, and Justin Chon. Looks even worse than so-bad-it's-good. Stay away.
Here's the new trailer (+ poster) for Mike Cuff & Scott Windhauser's Dead Trigger, direct from YouTube:
A mysterious virus has killed billions and turned many others into bloodthirsty zombies. Unable to stop the virus, the government develops a video game, "Dead Trigger," that mirrors the terrifying events that curse the world. Dead Trigger is co-directed by filmmakers Mike Cuff (making his feature directorial debut after a short film previously) & Scott Windhauser (a screenwriter who also directed the film Cops and Robbers previously) - their first project together. The screenplay is written by Heinz Treschnitzer, and Mike Cuff, with an update by Scott Windhauser. Based on the video game created by Madfinger Games. This first premiered at the Moscow Film Festival in 2017, and landed on DVD in Europe last year. Saban Films is finally releasing Dead Trigger in select US theaters + on VOD starting May 3rd coming up soon. Anyone?
Some guys just like bad trips, I guess. I don't think it's all about money with good old Dolph ...

I feel sorry for Lundgren, but he's a grown man making his own choices and here he is embarrassing himself for a few bucks. He's not making much doing this kind of junk, I'll tell you that. Poor sod. I had and still have too much self respect to degrade myself like this. I tried for an acting career. Worked a few good films with top directors, but couldn't earn a decent living at it doing decent projects. So I quit and did other things. Why? Because I didn't want to degrade myself by having to do things like this movie. God bless him, but he never really was much of an actor and didn't have a real chance at being a successful, respected one. Myself I'd rather have been a plumber or a garbage collector. At least those are noble and needed positions that we all need the services of. I did neither of those two respectful jobs, but sure dig my guys who come around my place when needed to do those things.

If you think Dolph Lundgren is struggling or isn't respected then you are very mistaken. Not to mention there's quite a market for low budget action films like these so I'm pretty sure Dolph doesn't need or care about you calling him 'poor sod'.

Right away when I see "Saban" I say no thank you. Then why is Dolph Ziggler always an "Elite Soldier" in every movie? Then he leads a troop of high school kids. Ugh.

Yeahhhhhhh Saban doesn't have the best track record, usually some sketchy films from them...
