IFC Films has delivered a brand new trailer for their upcoming MMA drama Embattled which stars Stephen Dorff as an abusive father who heads towards a confrontation with his own son in the Octagon. The film which was helmed by Nick Sarkisov is set to hit select theaters and VOD this November.
Raised by an abusive father, Cash (Stephen Dorff) channels his aggression to become a World Champion MMA fighter. Now accustomed to wealth, adulation, and global popularity, he faces a new challenge when his second son is born with Williams Syndrome. But this time, rather than stand and fight, he runs. While Cash continues to make his fortune in the ring, his eldest son Jett (Darren Mann) becomes the caregiver to his younger brother Quinn (Colin McKenna). When Jett decides to follow his father’s fighting footsteps and take to the fight game, he faces his past head on, embarking on a course inevitably pitting father versus son in a battle which, no matter the outcome, neither can win.
Embattled also stars Darren Mann (Chilling Adventures of Sabrina), Elizabeth Reaser (The Twilight Saga), Colin McKenna, Karrueche Tran (Claws), Donald Faison (Scrubs), Saïd Taghmaoui (John Wick 3), and Ava Capri.
Opening in select theaters and VOD ON November 20th so watch the family drama come to a head in the new trailer below!
