“I’ve been chasing their boss forever … this can go south.” Lionsgate has released the official trailer for another cheap, cheesy action thriller called Survive the game. Not to be confused with any of the other “Survive” movies recently, including Survive the night (who also has Bruce Willis funny enough). This is yet another one of those movies that makes you wonder “why does Bruce Willis make such crap movies all over again and again these days ?!” There’s not much about this: a man’s life on his farm is interrupted when an officer and a couple of dangerous criminals show up. In the minority, three heroes must use stealth, smarts and good shooting to eliminate that drug trade. Cast Chad Michael Murray, Bruce Willis, Swen Temmel, Donna D’Errico, Zack Ward, Sean Kanan, and Sarah Roemer. You can easily refer to this as “Bruce Willis on a farm action movie” if you want to invite friends over to a movie night. Or not.
Here is the official trailer (+ poster) for James Cullen Bressacks Survive the game, directly from YouTube:
Bruce Willis and Chad Michael Murray star in this wild, rolling crime story. When police officer David (Willis) is injured in a drug bust that goes wrong, his partner Cal chases the two criminals who shot him. They all land on a remote farm owned by the troubled vet Eric (Murray), and as Cal and Eric plan their defense, several of the gang arrive – along with a wounded David. In the minority, the three heroes must use stealth, smarts and good shooting to eliminate that drug trade. Survive the game, formerly known as Killing Field, is directed by American producer / filmmaker James Cullen Bressack, director of many films, including My pure joy, To Jennifer, Pernicious, The apartment, Spotlight, Blood Craft, Deadly reunion, Alone, and In addition to the law former. The script is written by Ross Peacock (director of Section 3 former). Lionsgate debuts Survive the game in selected American theaters + on VOD starting October 8, 2021 this fall. Anyone?
