Manowar Song To Appear In "El Gringo" Movie, Trailer Available

Manowar and After Dark Films announced today that a track from the new, forthcoming Manowar album will be the theme song for the After Dark Action franchise film, "El Gringo," an action Western starring Scott Adkins (The Expendables 2, The Bourne Ultimatum), Christian Slater and Yvette Yates (Without Men).

After Dark Action will showcase "El Gringo" and four other original, adrenaline-pumping films theatrically as a commercial film festival in US markets nationwide and on Video On Demand on May 11th. The following press release was also issued:

"Directed by Eduardo Rodriguez (Stash House) and written by Jonathan W. Stokes, 'El Gringo' is about The Man who crosses into Mexico with a satchel of $2,000,000 cash, a bloody past and a plan to live out his remaining days on a beach. Instead, he gets stuck waiting for a bus in El Fronteras, a sleepy desert town that’s so uninviting that – forget about the ocean – he can hardly find a glass of water. Then, word of his money spreads to the underworld. Under sudden attack from corrupt cops, gangsters, and desperados, The Man must push back his retirement plans, lock and load and save sleepy El Fronteras through a dizzying display of spectacular gunfights."

View the trailer of the upcoming action-packed "El Gringo" featuring a segment from the new Manowar song below. "El Gringo" marks the first time Manowar has written a song specifically for a movie. The song depicts the struggle of a hero torn between his moral code and financial gain, and the challenge of being true to oneself and the real values in life.

The band recently posted a sneak preview into the song online here.

"Everyone loves action movies! Our music, along with ass-kicking visuals and a great story, are a perfect match, not to mention a chance to actually see the music come alive on screen," said Manowar bassist and composer Joey DeMaio. "El Gringo has been a great experience, the team at After Dark Films has been a pleasure to work with, and we are ready for more!" he continued.

“We are thrilled to have Manowar as a creative collaborator on El Gringo,” said Courtney Solomon, a producer on the film, as well as the company owner and CEO of After Dark Films. “The band really invested their talent and energy into the project and we can’t wait to share their work with action audiences everywhere.”
