BEVERLY HILLS, CA – On November 12, Anchor Bay Films will release Ambushed: a hard-hitting thriller about the law’s battle to keep order, bringing back together hard-hitting Expendables I and II ex-pats Dolph Lundgren and Randy Couture, with Vinnie Jones (Snatch, X-Men: The Last Stand, Swordfish) completing a holy trinity of action and thrills! Directed by Giorgio Serafini, written by Agustin, and from the producers of Maximum Conviction, Seal Team Six: The Raid on Osama Bin Laden and The Devil’s in the Details, Ambushed packs a punch full of fists and thrills, and will be available for an SRP of $29.99 for the Blu-ray™/DVD Combo Pack and $24.98 for the DVD.

Ambushed charts the dark, seductive underbelly of Los Angeles, told from the point of view of two of its seedier denizens, mid-level drug pushers Eddie (Gianni Capaldi) and Frank (Daniel Bonjour). They want a chance to hit the big time. Unfortunately, they decide to achieve their goal by ripping off their middleman in a murderous bid for greatness, setting off a dangerous chain of events involving a ruthless crime boss, a dirty cop and the Federal agent chasing them all.
Agent Maxwell (Dolph Lundgren, One in the Chamber, The Package) is about to close in on an international cocaine smuggling operation run by criminal mastermind Vincent Camastra (Jones). When Agent Beverly Royce (Carly Pope, “24,” “Californication,” Concrete Blondes) goes undercover with the drug dealers, she finds herself in deeper than she can handle. Up against ruthless killers as well as dirty cop Jack Reiley (Randy Couture, UFC Hall of Fame, Hijacked, “The Unit”), Frank and Eddie will soon find that dreams built on corruption sometimes exact a heavy toll…
