I’m not a wrestling fan, but I’ve learned that in the WWE John Cena is a big deal. So in the tradition of Dwayne Johnson, Hulk Hogan and others it looks like he’s working on making the transition to movie action hero. If you’re a fan of Cena, you’ll be interested in the DVD/Blu-ray release of his upcoming film 12 Rounds, and we have a few copies of the DVD to give away.
Here’s the official description of the film/DVD:
WWE® SUPERSTAR JOHN CENA FACES THE ULTIMATE CHALLENGE IN THE HARDCORE ACTION-PACKED THRILLER
The Explosive Unrated “Extreme Cut” of 12 Rounds Too Intense For Theaters Brings The Smackdown On Blu-ray With Digital Copy And DVD June 30 From Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment
Loaded With Exclusive Making-Of Featurettes, Deleted Scenes, A Gag Reel, Commentaries And More!
A brilliant killer with a score to settle is putting Detective Danny Fisher to the ultimate test when 12 Rounds explodes with an unrated “Extreme Cut” on Blu-ray with Digital Copy and DVD June 30 from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment. WWE Superstar John Cena (The Marine) stars as Fisher, a New Orleans police officer playing a vicious game of cat and mouse after spoiling the multi-million dollar heist plan of an Irish arms dealer. When the thief’s girlfriend is accidentally killed in the melee he vows revenge, breaking out of prison and putting Fisher through a series of mental and physical challenges in order to save his kidnapped fiancée. With the clock ticking, Danny struggles to keep his focus as he races through The Big Easy completing each dangerous game and hoping he is still standing at the end of 12 Rounds.
