This hard-hitting film stars Lutz as a man kidnapped from his ordinary life and thrust into the savage world of a modern day gladiatorial arena where men fight to the death for the entertainment of the online masses.

Jackson) has created an empire with his brutal, fight-to-the-death gladiator website.  His newest warrior is David Lord (Kellan Lutz), a kidnapped fireman, now imprisoned and forced to fight for his life. To buy his freedom, Lord agrees to do a series of lethal bouts.  But as the body count escalates, and with his most challenging battle remaining, Lord unleashes a torrent of bloody carnage and reveals a secret that threatens to tear down the entire enterprise. Also featuring Daniel Dae Kim (TV’s “Lost”) and Nina Dobrev (TV’s “Vampire Diaries”).
