Standoff Premieres Exclusively on DIRECTV CINEMA™
DIRECTV customers are getting an exclusive first look at the new action thriller Standoff.
Standoff, starring Thomas Jane and Laurence Fishburne, is currently available for 72-hour rental on DIRECTV CINEMA™.1
The film tells the story of Carter (Jane), a psychologically troubled veteran who finds himself guarding the life of a 12-year-old murder witness named Bird (played by Ella Ballentine). They’re being targeted by the brutal assassin Sade (Fishburne).
Armed with only a shotgun and a single shell, Carter must prevail over Sade in a deadly game of cat-and-mouse that will push him to the physical and emotional brink.
Standoff is the directorial debut of Adam Alleca, who also wrote the screenplay. The film is Rated R for strong violence.
Standoff opens in theaters, and will be available through DIRECTV On Demand2, beginning Feb. 12. Until then, the only place to see it is DIRECTV CINEMA™.
