Sony Pictures Home Entertainment has released the first trailer for the upcoming Jean-Claude Van Damme, Dolph Lundgren movie Universal Soldier: Regeneration today, leaving us caught in a web of awesome. Our own Brian Salisbury reviewed this film at Fantastic Fest in early October, calling it a “stupendously entertaining reunion of Lundgren and Van Damme that packs the proverbial punch.” Similarly, the trailer is like a punch to the chest, packed with sweet ‘splosions.
With stolen top-secret technology, terrorists have created a next-generation Universal Soldier – an elite fighter genetically altered into a programmable killing machine. With this “UniSol” (Former UFC Heavyweight Champion Andrei “The Pit Bull” Arlovski) leading the way, they seize the crippled Chernobyl nuclear reactor, threatening to unleash a lethal radioactive cloud. The only one who can stop them is Luc Deveraux (Jean-Claude Van Damme), a UniSol who’s been decommissioned for years. Reactivated and retrained, Deveraux must make a full-out assault on the heavily armed fortress. But inside, he’ll discover not one but two of these virtually indestructible warriors. Andrew Scott (Dolph Lundgren), Deveraux’s vicious UniSol enemy from the original Universal Soldier, has been secretly reanimated and upgraded. Now, these elite fighters are locked, loaded and programmed to kill; and the fate of millions hinges on this high-action showdown.
Have a gander at the trailer below. Universal Soldier: Regeneration hits DVD and Blu-ray February 2, 2010.
