Well Go USA has premiered the official trailer and poster art for “Kickboxer: Retaliation,” a sequel to 2016’s “Kickboxer: Vengeance” which itself was a reboot of the classic Jean-Claude Van Damme action film.
Van Damme returns in a mentor role in the new films. In this entry MMA champion Kurt Sloane (Alain Moussi) finds himself back in Thailand kidnapped and imprisoned there by a powerful gangster (Christopher Lambert). His only shot at freedom is to win an underground death match against a 400lb killer (Hafþor Julius Bjornsson).
To make it out alive, he seeks training unlike anything he’s ever endured, with the help of the legendary Master Durand (Van Damme) and fellow prisoner Briggs (Mike Tyson). Sara Malakul Lane, Jessica Jann, Steven Swadling, and Sam Medina co-star in the film which opens in theaters and On Demand on January 26th.
