What happens when a soldier returns home only to find out that his wife has been taken hostage by terrorists? All out war, that’s what. This is the premise of a new action-thriller hitting theaters and Digital in January. Gary Dourdan, best known for the hit TV series CSI, stars in the film which boasts a sensational cast that includes Andy Garcia and Ernie Hudson.
Due to hit on January 8th, check out the official key art, trailer and images below!
Having just returned home, decorated U.S. Marine Captain Brad Paxton’s (Gary Dourdan) wife, Kate, is kidnapped by a terrorist group while working in Morocco. He is forced back into action for a daring and deadly operation to save the woman he loves.
Helmed by Hicham Hajji who also co-wrote the film with Sam Chouia, the cast also includes Serinda Swan (“Ballers”, “Coroner”), and Martin Donovan (Tenet, “Big Little Lies”) and Samy Naceri.
Once again, indie action is certainly filling the void these days as big budget blockbusters have been delayed and this one looks like it will fill the gap for genre fans. Dourdan definitely looks good in the macho soldier role with enough firepower and fisticuffs to thrill on a Saturday night.
Redemption Day hits theaters on January 8th followed by a Digital release a few days later on the 12th. Watch the explosive trailer below courtesy of Saban Films!
