Exclusive: The trailer and poster for After Dark Action's The Philly Kid!

Today we have an exclusive look at the trailer for After Dark Action's THE PHILLY KID, following on the heels of the production company's recently teased TRANSIT with Jim Caviezel and DRAGON EYES with Jean Claude Van Damme, co-starring his glasses.

THE PHILLY KID stars Wes Chatham (as The Philly Kid), Neal McDonough, Devon Sawa and Sarah Butler and is part of After Dark Action's line-up of five all-new action films to hit theaters and on demand.

Get your fight on:

Here's the synopsis:

On the same night that he was crowned an NCAA wrestling champion, Dillon McCabe (Wes Chatham) was involved in the killing of a cop and then sentenced to fifteen years of prison.  Ten years later, Dillon is paroled back onto the streets of his run-down Baton Rouge neighborhood.  Before he can pick up the pieces of his life, his best friend gets in trouble with a vicious loan shark.  To get the money to free him, Dillon must return to fighting – this time, mixed martial arts.  But his quick, brutal success gets him into more trouble than ever.  And after three vicious triumphs, he discovers that his real opponent is a corrupt system that requires him to do the impossible: lose.

I'm not sure what the upside is to releasing all five films at once, but the idea is to release the films in a limited theatrical run, while simultaneously releasing them On Demand at the same time.  It's an interesting move with some interesting-looking films.  They're all chock full of cheese, fistfights, explosions, car crashes, and stereotypical characters, almost like a trip back to the action-in-a-can movies of the 90's. 

You can check these out yourself on May 11, 2012 in limited theatrical release or On Demand.

Extra Tidbit: Philly Kid is directed by none other than Jason Connery, son of Sean.
