New trailer for Sylvester Stallone’s Backtrace brings the pain to VOD
Sylvester Stallone is bracing for the release of Creed II, set to pound theaters next week, but that hasn’t stopped him from plugging another on-the-side project he filmed earlier this year titled Backtrace. Check out the trailer below!
Directed by Brian A. Miller, who directed such Bruce Willis VOD cop thriller classics as The Prince, Vice, and Reprisal. Along with Stallone, the film stars Ryan Guzman (Armed), Matthew Modine (The Dark Knight Rises), Meadow Williams (Den of Thieves), Christopher McDonald (Happy Gilmore), and Colin Egglesfield (The Space Between Us).
After suffering a brain injury from a bank heist gone wrong, MacDonald (Matthew Modine) develops amnesia and is put into a prison psychiatric ward. Following his seventh year in evaluation, he is coerced by an inmate and a ward doctor (Ryan Guzman and Meadow Williams) to break out of prison and injected with a serum that forces him to relive the life he’s forgotten. MacDonald must now elude a local detective (Sylvester Stallone), a toughened FBI agent (Christopher McDonald) and the drug’s dangerous side effects in order to recover the stolen money all while confronting his past.
Backtrace will be in theaters and on demand by Lionsgate Premiere on December 14, 2018.
