One of Scott Adkins’ lesser known movies which was filmed a while back is about to finally see a release as Dead Reckoning (formerly known as Alter Rock) is hitting Blu-Ray and DVD from Shout! Factory. Check out the cover art and newly released trailer below.
Tillie Gardner’s summer romance with local cab driver Niko before starting college is helping her cope with the tragic death of her parents in a private plane crash a few weeks earlier. Too bad she doesn’t know yet he is the brother of the terrorist who actually sabotaged the plane, and who is also involved with a plot to bomb the annual Fourth of July beach celebration on Nantucket Island. Can she gather herself and her wits together and discover his dark secret in time and prevent a terrible massacre?
Along with Adkins, the cast also features K.J. Apa (Riverdale), India Eisley (I Am the Night, Underworld Awakening), Apa, James Remar (Dexter, X-Men: First Class), Ellie Cornell (Femme Fatales, Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers), Sydney Park (The Walking Dead, Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionists).
Andrzej Bartkowiak, known for Doom, helms the film which was penned by Alfred Wayne Carter and Kristin Alexandre.
This one has peeked my interest as it was shot well over four years ago and it’s good to see Adkins trying something different. He isn’t a nice guy in this one so it’ll be interesting to see how it all pays off but one thing is for sure, Adkins plays just as good a bad guy as he does a good one.
Dead Reckoning will hit VOD and Digital on November 13. Watch the new trailer below.
