‘Rogue’ Trailer: Megan Fox Battles Armed Rebels And Hungry CGI Lions In Action Flick From ‘Solomon Kane’ Director

Megan Fox has always gravitated towards action movies, whether it’s the Transformers or TMNT franchises. But in those films she was typically relegated to the sidelines, however, the action is all on her shoulders in the new flick, Rogue, from Solomon Kane and Silent Hill: Revelation director M.J. Bassett.

This trailer is pretty crazy, too. Fox plays mercenary Samantha O’Hara, who leads her team on a dangerous rescue mission to save the daughter of the Governor of a small African nation. Left stranded, she must battle armed rebels and ravenous lions while seeking refuge.

The film was not only directed by Bassett, but she also co-wrote the script with daughter Isabel. It was the well-received screenplay that attracted the attention of Fox, giving her the rare chance to lead her own action flick. This looks like it would’ve been the type of film that would do gangbusters on Netflix. Does it look any better or worse than Extraction? I don’t think so.

Rogue hits VOD and digital on August 28th, then Bluray/DVD on September 1st.

SYNOPSIS: Megan Fox (Transformers) tackles a thrilling new role as a battle-hardened mercenary in this explosive action saga. As team leader O’Hara, she leads a lively squad of soldiers on a daring mission: rescue hostages from their captors in remote Africa. But as the mission goes awry and the team is stranded, O’Hara’s squad must face a bloody, brutal encounter with a gang of rebels—and the horde of ravenous, enraged lions they encounter.
