UNIVERSAL SOLDIER DAY OF RECKONING TRAILERSince it has been an extremely slow week in the film news department, the only clip I have for you today is something you might take with some nostalgia, remembering the action packed 90's: it's the trailer for
UNIVERSAL SOLDIER: DAY OF RECKONING which hits cinemas this November and brings back two of the biggest action stars of that decade Dolph Lundgren and Jean Claude Van Damme. In the film, surviving Unisols Luc Deveraux and Andrew Scott battle anarchy to build a new order ruled by Unisols without government oversight. To accomplish this, they weed out the weak and constantly test their strongest warriors in brutal, life-and-death combat. It is interesting that both stars, alongside Scott Adkins who is also in the cast, star in another film which reunites action stars from the past - EXPENDABLES 2! The trailer is so cheesy, you could put it on your pizza.
