‘Perfect Addiction’ Trailer: Revenge And A Bruising Love Triangle In The World Of Combat Sports

Combat sports lend themselves to a number of intense emotions, which is why boxing and cage fighting movies are so damn dramatic. So what happens when you add two already-intense emotions, like love and revenge, into the mix? Well, you get Perfect Addiction, a new thriller headed to Prime Video next month.

Based on Claudia Tan’s bestselling YA book, Perfect Addiction stars Kiana Madeira as Sienna Lane, a boxing trainer who is the driving force behind her boyfriend Jax’s championship reign as an MMA fighter. Everything seems perfect…until she catches Jax cheating on her with her little sister!

“Sleeping with my little sister is an act of war,” she says.

What’s that they say about a woman scorned? Sienna’s plot is pretty deep, as she hooks up with the one guy she knows can dethrone Jax and bring his empire down, his rival Kayden. While Sienna’s scheme seems to be going well at first, it eventually turns into a complex love triangle that threatens to leave everyone battered and bruised.

The film also stars Matthew Noszka, Ross Butler, Poppy Gilbert, Manu Bennett, Nicholas Duvernay, Bree Winslow, and Ryan Bown.  Castille Landon directs from a script by Stephanie Sanditz.

Perfect Addiction  is being released for a special two-night Fathom Event on Monday, March 27th and Wednesday, March 29th. If interested, a link for tickets can be found here.

MMA trainer Sienna Lane thought she had finally got her life together: A nice apartment, her dream job, and Jax, the love of her life. Jax and Sienna seemed to be the unbreakable couple, moving from strength to strength, as Sienna trained Jax to become the ultimate MMA underground champion. Everything felt perfect … until it wasn’t, when she catches Jax cheating on her with her younger sister.

Facing the ultimate betrayal from those closest to her, Sienna sets out for revenge, and intends to hit Jax where it hurts the most—in the ring. The perfect opportunity presents itself in the form of underdog Kayden Williams. Kayden and Sienna soon realize that, to achieve their goals, they are going to have to work together to bring down Jax in the ring. But when Sienna and Kayden get closer outside the ring, the path to the champion’s title gets a little more complicated.
