In the distant future, mankind has forsaken global wars for battles of single combat. The world has been divided into two opposing super powers, with each side represented by trained champions. Their weapons are huge robotic machines, capable of battle on land, sea and in the air. From celebrated director Stuart Gordon (Re-Animator, From Beyond) and executive producer Charles Band comes ROBOT JOX, a riveting sci-fi action adventure. Directed by Stuart Gordon, the film stars Gary Graham (TV’s Alien Nation), Anne-Marie Johnson (TV’s In The Heat of the Night, JAG), Paul Koslo (Voyage of the Damned), Robert Sampson (Re-Animator, The Dark Side of the Moon), Danny Kamekona (Hawaii Five-O, The Karate Kid, Part II), Hilary Mason (Dolls) and Michael Alldredge (Scarface) as Tex.
On July 7, 2015, SCREAM FACTORY™ is proud to present ROBOT JOX Blu-ray™ on home entertainment shelves everywhere. Arriving for the first time on Blu-ray, this highly-anticipated release contains insightful bonus content, including new interview with actor Paul Koslo, audio commentary, behind-the-scene footage and much more.

ROBOT JOX reveals a world where nations settle their territorial disputes by a single combat between two giant machines. Piloted by national heroes Achilles (Gary Graham) and Alexander (Paul Koslo), the robots meet in Death Valley to fight for the greatest prize of all: Alaska. But when Achilles’ machine crushes 300 spectators, the match ends in a draw. Refusing to face Alexander in a rematch, Achilles is replaced by Athena (Anne-Marie Johnson), a genetically-engineered combat fighter. So when the GenJox is nearly killed and the game is forfeited, Achilles avenges their honor by challenging Alexander to a winner-take-all death match, in this heavy-metal, sci-fi adventure.
