Lionsgate today revealed the official trailer for the upcoming action thriller, 5lbs of Pressure, which will be released in theaters, on digital and on demand in the US and Canada on March 8th, 2024. 5lbs of Pressure stars Luke Evans (Good Grief, Nine Perfect Strangers), Rudy Pankow (Outer Banks, Uncharted), Rory Culkin (Under the Banner of Heaven, Columbus), and Alex Pettyfer (Echo Boomers, Magic Mike).

Written and directed by Phil Allocco (The Truth About Lies), the synopsis reads: “In this gripping action-thriller, Adam (Luke Evans), an ex-con back in his old neighborhood after serving a 16-year stretch for murder, walks a rocky path of forgiveness toward the son who grew up without him, while the bitter, volatile brother of the youth he killed looms in the background. Meanwhile, Mike (Rory Culkin), sick of doing the bidding of his drug-dealing uncle (Alex Pettyfer), is desperate to leave his sordid life behind. When Adam and Mike’s paths converge, inescapable destiny will give way to violence…and a final, fleeting shot at redemption.”
