With the birth of a new baby brother weighing on his mind, Alexander begins to question Gregori’s overpowering influence on the children and their training to become assassins. Threatened by his increasing unwillingness to fall in line, Gregori’s behavior turns erratic and adversarial toward the child he once considered a son.

This time around we are giving away 5×2 Tickets for the Premiere Screening of the upcoming Action / Thriller “THE TRANSPORTER REFUELED” directed by Camille Delamarre and starring Ed Skrein, Ray Stevenson, Gabriella Wright courtesy of our friends at Gulf Film.

The Premiere will take place on August 31st (Monday), at 8pm at the Novo Cinemas at the Ibn Battuta Mall.

The Plot in short:  Frank Martin, played by newcomer Ed Skrein, a former special-ops mercenary, is now living a less perilous life – or so he thinks – transporting classified packages for questionable people. When Frank’s father (Ray Stevenson) pays him a visit in the south of France, their father-son bonding weekend takes a turn for the worse when Frank is engaged by a cunning femme-fatale, Anna (Loan Chabanol), and her three seductive sidekicks to orchestrate the bank heist of the century. Frank must use his covert expertise and knowledge of fast cars, fast driving and fast women to outrun a sinister Russian kingpin, and worse than that, he is thrust into a dangerous game of chess with a team of gorgeous women out for revenge. From the producers of LUCY and the TAKEN trilogy, THE TRANSPORTER REFUELED is a fresh personification of the iconic role of Frank Martin, that launches the high-octane franchise into the present-day and introduces it to the next generation of thrill-seekers. While the stakes are greater and technology is better, the same three simple rules apply: never change the deal, no names and never open the package.
