"Falcon Rising" starring Michael Jai White and featuring music by Neal Acree is set for a theatrical release date on September 5. Directed by Assassination Games director Ernie Barbarash, "Falcon Rising" is the first installment in the "Codename: Falcon" franchise of movies that will also start White.
The Moonstone Entertainment produced franchise revolves around a former marine named John "Falcon" Chapman, described as a "dark anti-hero driven by guilt, who will destroy himself unless given something else to destroy," making him "a useful weapon-of-last-resort for the foreign ministry."
In the first film in the franchise, our man Chapman travels to Brazil to hunt down his sister's killers, and, in the process, discovers an underground world of drugs, prostitution, and police corruption ruled by the Japanese mafia.
As one might expect from the films locales, Neal's music features a blend of brazilian instruments and rhythms and Japanese colors and plenty of action.
White himself previously shared that the Falcon movies are the type of projects he's "waited to do" his "entire career," adding, "Get ready folks cause this [is the] first of what's to come."
With the film's release announcement comes its first trailer:
