Are you ready for Megan Fox the action star? Better yet, are you ready for Megan Fox as a battle hardened Merc who takes on a lion? Absolutely! In this day and age with Digital movies being our only constant source of entertainment, I’m up for anything. Hell, I was up for anything before this all started so I say bring it!
The film is called Rogue which is a seller right there because that’s the kind of SUV I have but the new trailer courtesy of Lionsgate looks like a good time so I’ll show up.
Official Synopsis: Megan Fox tackles a thrilling new role as a battle-hardened mercenary in this explosive action saga. As team leader O’Hara, she leads a lively squad of soldiers on a daring mission: rescue hostages from their captors in remote Africa. But as the mission goes awry and the team is stranded, O’Hara’s squad must face a bloody, brutal encounter with a gang of rebels — and the horde of ravenous, enraged lions they encounter.
M.J. Bassett (Silent Hill: Revelation) helms the pic and speaking to EW, the director talked about the film. Rogue is the story of a small mercenary unit of soldiers who have been engaged by the governor of an African country to rescue his daughter who has been kidnapped by an Al-Shabaab-type organization. This unit go in, there’s more than one girl so their plan is immediately compromised, and their extraction goes wrong. So, suddenly they find themselves on the run from the bad guys, looking for refuge in Africa, and come across an abandoned farm, or they think it’s abandoned. While they’re hunkering down they realize that the farm was used as a poachers’ stronghold and a breeding place for lions for the hunting industry and the East Asian medicinal market. And though the lions seem to have escaped, there’s clearly one still around. So, suddenly they realize they have no ammunition and they are very much the bottom of the food chain, and they have to survive the night before the bad guys arrive, the lion gets them, and the extraction can happen.”
Sounds like a winner to me. Thank God for streaming is all I have to say and the trailer looks good. I know it’s not gonna win awards but hey, it’s what we got right now. The film also stars one of my favorite actors in Philip Winchester who starred in a little TV show called Strike Back so that right there wants to make me watch it even more.
The film is due to hit Digital and VOD on August 28th and you may now feat your eyes on the new trailer below!
