[UPDATED] Scott Adkins Goes From Hunted To Hunter In The New HARD TARGET 2 Trailer

At first glance I would have sworn that a sequel to John Woo's 1994 thriller, Hard Target was a standalone film. It was thrilling and fun as it came at the height of action star Jean-Claude Van Damme's career in Hollywood and though it may have taken more than two decades for a sequel to happen, it finally has.

Thus, we get the delight of having actor Scott Adkins lead this latest foray into sequel territory as he nears a career milestone of his own with Marvel's Doctor Strange later this year. Here and now with The Admiral helmer Roel Reine directing and an equally stellar action-packed cast on hand, the latest trailer has arrived for the film's forthcoming release on DVD, Blu-Ray and Digital HD on September 6, and with probably one of the best action star one-liners you'll ever hear in this movie.

The trailer itself was since made available on the recent DVD and Blu-Ray release of Jarhead: The Siege, but you can now check it out below the official announcement!

But when he arrives for the fight, he learns he's been tricked into becoming the target of a human hunt. Carrying only water and a ruby-filled money belt for the last person standing, Wes must outsmart the heavily armed group that has paid to kill him. As he fights for his life in the treacherous jungle terrain, the hunters become the hunted.
