MMA Action Drama TAPPED-OUT Gets A New Trailer And U.S. Release Date
Mixed martial arts still plays an important role in the action genre, and director Allan Ungar‘s most recent feature-length directorial debut looks to capitalize on it later this year with the forthcoming U.S. release of his new dramatic MMA headliner, Tapped Out (formerly known as Tapped), featuring lead actor and Karate champion Cody Hackman. The film was picked up in November last year by Lionsgate Home Entertainment who have a new press release out with all the info you need, and a new trailer just beneath it.
Enjoy the action-packed underdog story Tapped Out, arriving on DVD (plus Digital UltraViolet), Digital HD, Video on Demand and Pay-Per-View May 27 from Lionsgate Home Entertainment. Starring MMA Champion Krzysztof Soszynski (Here Comes The Boom), MMA Champion Anderson Silva (Like Water), MMA Champion Lyoto Machida, Jess Brown (TV’s “Omega”), Daniel Faraldo (Anything Goes), along with Martin Kove (The Karate Kid trilogy) and Michael Biehn (Grindhouse), Tapped Out follows a former Karate prodigy who decides to compete in an MMA tournament to avenge his family’s death. The Tapped Out DVD, including cast interviews, will be available on DVD for the suggested retail price of $26.98.
Former Karate prodigy, Michael Shaw returns to his roots when he is sentenced to community service at a rundown Karate school. When he spots the man who killed his family at a local MMA fight, he goes behind his Karate master’s back and trains harder than ever before to compete in an upcoming MMA tournament. Soon, he will go toe-to-toe in the ring with his parents’ killer and he won’t stop until the last punch knocks his opponent to the ground, leaving him Tapped Out.
