Sony Pictures Home Entertainment has released a trailer for the upcoming Jean-Claude Van Damme / Dolph Lundgren movie Universal Soldier: Regeneration.
With stolen top-secret technology, terrorists have created a next-generation Universal Soldier – an elite fighter genetically altered into a programmable killing machine. With this “UniSol” (Former UFC Heavyweight Champion Andrei “The Pit Bull” Arlovski) leading the way, they seize the crippled Chernobyl nuclear reactor, threatening to unleash a lethal radioactive cloud. The only one who can stop them is Luc Deveraux (Jean-Claude Van Damme), a UniSol who’s been decommissioned for years. Reactivated and retrained, Deveraux must make a full-out assault on the heavily armed fortress. But inside, he’ll discover not one but two of these virtually indestructible warriors. Andrew Scott (Dolph Lundgren), Deveraux’s vicious UniSol enemy from the original Universal Soldier, has been secretly reanimated and upgraded. Now, these elite fighters are locked, loaded and programmed to kill; and the fate of millions hinges on this high-action showdown.
Directed by John Hyams (NYPD Blue), filmed for $15 million and going direct-to-dvd. The movie premiered at Fantastic Fest 2009, and was met mostly with positive reviews from the genre crowd. Watch the trailer after the jump, and leave your thoughts in the comments below.

We usually don’t report on the real life going-ons of actors, but I found this story to be somewhat amusing.
Masked burglers broke into a home near Marbella, Spain, where they tied up and terrorized the woman of the house. But when the attackers noticed a family photo featuring 80′s action star Dolph Lundgren in one of the bedrooms, they decided to make a run for it. According to the Daily Mail, Lundgren’s wife was unharmed but emotionally traumatized by the incident. Police are still looking for the three attackers.
Lundgren is probably most famous for playing the Russian boxer Ivan Drago in Rocky IV, playing He-Man in the 1987 live-action Masters of the Universe movie, and as the star of Universal Soldier. He’s definitely a scary dude who you don’t want to mess with, even at the age of 52.
