Next month Universal Pictures will release MMA drama Embattled starring Stephen Dorff and Darren Mann. Today we get a look at a short disorientating clip.
The film follows a brash, maniacal MMA Champion(Dorff) who must confront the sins of his past when a media-firestorm forces him into the ring against his eldest son (Mann), an 18-year-old prodigy following in his father’s footsteps. For one of them, this fight might just be his last.
In this clip there no dialogue, just an intense clip in the middle of the father/Son fights. Jett is getting a look over from the cutman, he’s exhausted, disorientated getting ready for another round!
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.
The film also stars Elizabeth Reaser, Donald Faison, Saïd Taghmaoui, Karrueche Tran, and Colin McKenna.
Embattled will be released by Universal Pictures in the UK on Digital from 5th July.
