    London, UK. 12/10/2011 - Rising star Kellan Lutz (Twilight series, Nightmare on Elm Street) and Oscar® nominee Samuel L. Jackson (Best Actor in a Supporting Role, Pulp Fiction,1994) face off in the action-packed, visually stunning thrill ride ARENA, available on Blu-ray™ and DVD this January 2 courtesy of Sony Pictures Home Entertainment.

    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 is "at his sinister best" (Tim Jansen, Media Entertainment) as the sadistic businessman behind the underground operation. ARENA co-stars Nina Dobrev (The Roommate, "The Vampire Diaries") and Daniel Dae Kim ("Lost," "Hawaii Five-0"). Action fans won't want to miss the life-or-death excitement when ARENA debuts on Blu-ray™ for RRP £17.99 and DVD for RRP £12.99.

    How do you make a fortune from the bloodlust of millions? One sadistically savvy businessman (Samuel L. 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").

    ARENA marks the directorial debut of visual effects supervisor Jonah Loop (Collateral, Transporter 2). It was written by Tony Giglio (Chaos, Death Race 2 & 3) based on a screenplay by Michael Hultquist & Robert Martinez (Victim) and produced by Mark Williams (Flawless, Malice in Wonderland), Brad Krevoy (Dumb and Dumber, Kingpin) and Mike Callaghan (Hardwired, Ticking Clock).
