Scott Mann's The Tournament Opening Screamfest LA

The opening film for one of the Los Angeles area's most well respected horror film festivals, Screamfest LA 2009, has been announced; and it looks like the games are just about ready to begin ... or should I say tournaments?

Director Scott Mann’s high octane, blood-bathed, British action thriller The Tournament, starring Ving Rhames, Robert Carlyle, Kelly Hu, Ian Somerhalder, Liam Cunningham, Scott Adkins, and Sebastien Foucan, will open this year’s Screamfest in the prestigious Grauman’s Theatre on October 16th.

Written by Gray Young, Jonathan Frank, and Nick Rowntree and produced by Keith Bell, Glenn M. Stewart, Gina Fegan, The Tournament is an explosive, action-loaded thriller where the winner takes all. Every seven years, thirty of the world’s most deadly assassins face off against one another for an outrageous cash prize. There’s only one rule: kill or die. As dozens of wealthy gamblers watch via closed-circuit TV, a city is overrun by brutal assassins - all aiming to be the last one standing.

The 9th annual festival will be held October 16th-25th at the Mann Chinese Theaters in Hollywood, California. Check out the trailer for The Tournament by clicking the image below, and while you're on the site get yourself some tickets like yesterday!
