After Dark Action's The Philly Kid - New Trailer, Poster and Stills

The latest film in the After Dark Action series to get coverage here at the Lair is The Philly Kid. The film stars Wes Chatham, Neal McDonough and Devon Sawa and joins Dragon Eyes, Transit, Stash House and El Gringo in opening at theaters on May 11th. Below, I have the full synopsis, as well as stills and the trailer for you to peruse.

On the same night that he was crowned an NCAA wrestling champion, Dillon McCabe (Wes Chatham) was involved in the killing of a cop and then sentenced to fifteen years of prison.  Ten years later, Dillon is paroled back onto the streets of his run-down Baton Rouge neighborhood.  Before he can pick up the pieces of his life, his best friend gets in trouble with a vicious loan shark.  To get the money to free him, Dillon must return to fighting – this time, mixed martial arts.  But his quick, brutal success gets him into more trouble than ever.  And after three vicious triumphs, he discovers that his real opponent is a corrupt system that requires him to do the impossible: lose.
