If there’s anything specifically worth noting about actor and producer Dolph Lundgren‘s new action thriller, Skin Trade, much of it lies in its etymology. The film is well over seven years in the making, having mainly begun as the first step into a more personal journey for the veteran action hero upon doing his own research on the disturbing reality of human trafficking.
As such, while Skin Trade certainly is not the first film to utilize this particular type of story setup in serving its purpose like many action movies in history, there has always been a much larger agenda at hand. At any rate though, as we now move into 2015 for the film’s hopeful release, Beautiful Boxer helmer Ekachai Uekrongtham‘s latest foray into storytelling now welcomes willing observers with a full trailer for Lundgren‘s latest labor of love which promises plenty of stylish action entertainment to equal in substance.
