The sci-fi action film, Battle of the Damned, has just been picked up by Anchor Bay who will distribute the film in the US, Australia and New Zealand.
The film is the latest project from Expendables star Dolph Lundgren and also features David Field, Matt Doran and Melanie Zanetti. Battle of the Damned was written and directed by Christopher Hatton who previously worked on Robotropolis.
Alright, I’ve been biting my tongue on this part. The movie features humans battling zombies… AND ROBOTS!
In the near future on the outskirts of civilization a remote test facility lays in ruin following a catastrophic security breach. The breach led to a viral outbreak that left thousands dead or mutated. All that remains are a handful of survivors, their small armory of weapons and a fleet of the infected. Led by private military operative Max Gatling (Lundgren), they fight the infected and soon learn there are bands of malfunctioning prototype robots also on the march and they are armed and incredibly dangerous.
You know what? Fine, sure. I’ll take it. Give me Dolph Lundgren spin kicking a robot’s head off and using it to bash a zombie to death. I want this more than you can know.
There’s no official trailer out for this yet, but the footage below is from a concept video that was released a year ago. Check it out.
