Here is an advance Promo Reel I got from a rare source.

It comes from Franchise/Phoenician Entertainement's line-up VHS tape given to distributors at the late Milan Film Market (MIFED) 1998.

It was made before production, with all but stock footage, including COVER-UP, JOSHUA TREE, UNIVERSAL SOLDIER and JOHNNY MNEMONIC! :mrgreen:

Composers Eric and David Wurst had done the score (and paid for a 50 musicians orchestra recording session from their own pocket) for the infamously unreleased FANTASTIC FOUR (1994) from Roger Corman.

I seem to vaguely recall this one playing on HBO/Cinemax back in the day but I will say that while Anthony Hickox is way too distracted with playing a minor yet not truly relevant character in this film, he handles the action scenes truly well and the actors, silly dialogue aside, aren't half bad either.

I dig how main villain actor Robert Miano would later reunite with Dolph on Blood of Redemption.

Miano went to the same acting class as Dolph at some point. He was also to co-star in the aborted project THE CONTROLLER (replaced by THE MECHANIK).

Thanks for that trivia. I could sort of tell during the DVD special features for BLOOD OF REDEMPTION that they had a working history together. Sorry that other film went kapoot though.

The Wurst brothers are rather talented and it's a shame that beyond just Corman's SyFy Channel productions and Wynorski skin flicks that they have yet to find bigger work.

Spacesuit nerdism

Not seen this but from what I've read I think these are high altitude flight suits as featured in this Dolph Lundgren film; Storm Catcher. Later on though, they intermingle with the spacesuits from Soldier (1998) for varied Firefly (2002) appearances and then and go on to appear in Start Trek Voyager in their new hybrid form. I do like it when a couple of different suits come together to make a 3rd variant, although it does make it hard to catalogue. It happened with the Moon Zero Two and the Doppelganger spacesuits

Yes, a high altitude suit, known a an s-1030, although he is wearing an s-1035 ACES helmet.
They are all pressure suits, just some make there way in to space....

Speaking of reused suits, did Dolph reuse any military uniforms from The Peacekeeper for this?

That video is better than the actual movie.
