The Weinstein Company is set to release Scott Mann’s indie actioner THE TOURNAMENT on DVD in the U.S. and U.K. on October 20th. Now available is cover art and a new trailer depicting stars Kelly Hu, Robert Carlyle, Ving Rhames, Scott Adkins, and Ian Somerhalder in a deadly contest pitting the world’s top 30 assassins against one another.

DVD cover for UK release of THE TOURNAMENT (2009).

A longer video promo had been leaked online over a year ago but has been pulled from Youtube since. That video showed a bit more of martial arts star Scott Adkins (X-MEN ORIGINS: WOLVERINE) in action as one of the assassins.

The promo had me excited about this film last year and this new trailer has me equally stoked as it shows more of the plot with Carlyle as a priest seemingly caught up in the mayhem after he accidentally ingests an implant used to track the assassins.

I’m not seeing any current information or promotional build up on this DVD release yet so I hope TWC has something planned. THE TOURNAMENT has been kicking around for a couple years despite brisk international sales in 2007. It has a solid cast and looks to have a lot of gritty, intense action set pieces.
