Magnet has released the official one sheet for the sequel to the cult favorite District B13 – District 13: Ultimatum.
District 13: Ultimatum takes place two years after elite police officer Damien Tomasso (Cyril Raffaelli) teamed up with reformed vigilante Leito (parkour originator David Belle) to save the notorious District 13, a racially charged ghetto populated by violent drug dealing gangs and vicious killers. Despite government promises to maintain order, the state of the district has deteriorated, and a group of corrupt cops and elected officials are conspiring to cause civil unrest in D13, looking for an excuse to raze the area and cash in on its redevelopment.
Now Damian and Leito must join forces again, and use their mastery of martial arts and their unique physical skills to bring peace to the neighborhood by any means necessary – before a proposed nuclear airstrike wipes it off the map. With bone crunching fights and death defying leaps, this adrenaline charged sequel takes the groundbreaking parkour action from District B13 to thrilling new heights.
The Luc Besson (Taken)-produced District 13: Ultimatum is the fourth film in Magnet Releasing’s Six Shooter Film Series V2, a series of six films focusing specifically on action cinema, featuring some of the most exciting action films available today from around the globe. District 13: Ultimatum will be preceded by John Woo’s Red Cliff, Tony Jaa’s Ong Bak 2: The Beginning and Bronson, with two other films to follow over the coming months including Jet Li’s The Warlords (Tau ming chong).
District 13: Ultimatum premieres on VOD, Amazon and Xbox Live on January 1st, 2010 and then in theatres on February 5th.
