The New MMA Drama is Now Playing in Select Cinemas and VOD
Redemption and loyalty is the message behind the new mma drama from first time director J.M. Berrios as he helms the new project Blackbear which was also knon as Submission at one time. The film is hitting the VOD and Digital market as of today and we have the new poster and official tailer for you to check out below!
After Staff Sergeant Codey “Bear” Blackbear (Scott Pryor) and his best friend and fellow sniper, Cowboy (Darrin Henson), escape from an ISIS interrogation, Cowboy’s only chance for survival is an unaffordable experimental treatment program. Back on the streets, Bear finds himself alone, aimless and with a new heroin addiction, courtesy of ISIS. Years after leaving the mixed martial arts world, Bear’s motivation to help Cowboy survive leads him back to his old gym. He enlists the help of his coach (Eric Roberts) to train him for a high-dollar fight in “The Basement”, an underground fight ring. In the end, Bear goes into his last mission truly living up to the Marine’s motto, Semper Fidelis; always faithful.
Scott Pryor heads up the cast and he is joined by Darrin Henson, and Eric Roberts. This one looks like it packs an emotional punch to say the least and a tissue or two might be in demand along with the fisticuffs and action.
Blackbear is now available on Digital and VOD as well as select cinemas from Gravitas Ventures.
