You may be surprised to learn that in-between pretending to beat people over the head with chairs in the WWE wrestling ring, John Cena also pretends to beat people over the head with chairs in movies. Okay, so you probably wouldn’t be surprised to learn that. The guy does have a couple of theatrical releases to his credit already, after all. Check out a trailer and images from Cena’s action-comedy “The Reunion”, which hits theaters October 21st.

The Cleary brothers, Sam (JOHN CENA), Leo (ETHAN EMBRY) and Douglas (BOYD HOLBROOK) take dysfunctional families to a new level: Sam and Leo have grown up hating each other and neither likes their juvenile delinquent kid brother, Douglas, to whom they’ve only recently been introduced. The sons share the same father, a womanizing drunk, but all have different mothers. Their father died a rich man and when they’re brought together by their sister Nina (AMY SMART) to learn which of them will inherit the old man’s fortune, they are handed an unpleasant surprise.

A requirement of the will is that the three estranged siblings go into business together as bail bondsmen. Their first job is to bring in a parole violator who has left Leo with a $250,000 debt. Their search will take them into the mountains of Mexico where they encounter a drug lord and uncover a kidnapping plot, masterminded by an embittered entrepreneur (MICHAEL RISPOLI) that will endanger them all.

Also starring Ethan Embry, Boyd Holbrook, Amy Smart, and directed by Michael Pavone.
