Steve Austin’s Action Family Film Knockout Gets Release Date

Phase 4 Films is pleased to announce the BLU-RAY, DVD & VOD release of KNOCKOUT on April 26, 2011. KNOCKOUT stars wrestler turned movie star Steve Austin (The Expendables, Damage, The Longest Yard), a pop culture icon with a huge fan following from his vital role in the World Wrestling Entertainment arena. The direct-to-DVD and VOD film brings Steve Austin back to the ring to train a rising boxing star, played by Daniel Magder (“Life with Derek”). KNOCKOUT is an inspiring story in the vein of under-dog classics such as The Karate Kid and Rocky.

Outsider and new kid Matthew (Daniel Magder) desperately wants to join his high school’s boxing team, but resident bully and boxing champion Hector stands in his way. Facing constant torment, Matthew finds an unlikely ally in Dan (Steve Austin), the school’s janitor and one-time amateur boxer. Despite Matthew’s overprotective parents and unimposing size, Dan sees potential in him. Together, they train for the biggest boxing match of Matthew’s life and discover what it truly means to be a winner.

Phase 4 Films will release KNOCKOUT on April 26, 2011. The Blu-ray and DVD are available for $29.99 SRP at all major retailers.
