Today is a day for crazy trailers. We just showed you the batshit insane sneak peek at acclaimed Japanese cult director Takashi Miike's Yakuza Apocalypse. If you've recovered from that blistering bit of action cinema centering around kung fu, vampires, and killer frogs, then we have something else that might be right up your alley. It involves the Living Dead, an 80s action icon and a former NBA All-Star. I see your face. You're more than intrigued! And we know you want to watch the first trailer for Navy Seals Vs. Zombies.
After losing all contact with the Vice President during a routine campaign stop in Louisiana, the U.S. Government sends in a team of Navy SEALs for the rescue. Dropped into a warzone, the SEALs quickly discover that they aren't dealing with a normal enemy. The city is under siege by hordes of fast moving, flesh eating undead. The infection is spreading and urban warfare has been unleashed. With no cure in sight and time running out, the elite unit has to survive their most horrific mission of all.
Rick Fox (Former NBA player) joins 80s action icon Michael Dudikoff for what will surely be the best zombie movie to come out in the last week of September. This action horror extravaganza also stars Molly Hagan, Ed Quinn, Olympian LoLo Jones and real Navy SEALs. The film arrives on Digital HD on Friday, September 25th and on Blu-ray, DVD and On Demand on Tuesday, October 6th from Anchor Bay Entertainment and is directed by Stanton Barrett (NASCAR driver and Hollywood stuntman) in his directorial debut.
Retiring from the Los Angeles Lakers in 2004, Rick Fox didn't really ever need to do anything else ever again. But he was bit by the acting bug early on in his NBA career, first appearing in the 1994 basketball drama Blue Chips opposite Lakers teammate Shaquille O'Neal. Two years later, he would appear in another basketball-themed movie, the comedy Eddie starring opposite Whoopi Goldberg. Rounding out his own personal basketball trilogy, he also appeared in Spike Lee's 1998 romantic dramedy He Got Game. Some have always felt he was a little too handsome for the court, and was more suited for the big screen. Though his greatest role would come on the small screen in the HBO prison drama Oz, where he appeared in 11 episodes between 1997 and 2003 playing Vahue, a superstar basketball player imprisoned for sexual assault. He subsequently develops and overcomes a major drug addiction.
After retiring from professional basketball, Rick Fox would give himself over to acting completely. From 2005 until 2008, he would appear in a great number of TV series, holding down guest spots and recurring story arcs. In 2008, he landed a lead role in Tyler Perry's Meet the Browns. Navy Seals Vs. Zombies marks Rick Fox's first starring role in a major motion picture. And he couldn't have been teamed up with a better partner than Michael Dudikoff. Best known for his American Ninja series, the 80s action icon has only appeared in a handful of movies over the past decade. This may be his best. Don't believe us? Just take a look at this trailer for Navy Seals Vs. Zombies!
