When the going gets tough, the police get S.W.A.T., but this time even S.W.A.T. is under siege.

The latest film in the action franchise arrives on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital on August 1, and it brings with it a new tale of good guys and bad guys, and folks in between. The new film stars Michael Jai White (Black Dynamite), Adrianne Palicki (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.) and Sam Jaeger (American Sniper), and we’ve got the premiere of the movie’s first trailer.

Here’s the rundown:

When a D.E.A. and S.W.A.T. cartel takedown ends in a shootout, S.W.A.T. Agent Travis Hall (Jaeger) seizes a mysterious prisoner and takes him into custody. Before long, the S.W.A.T. compound is under siege by wave after wave of assault teams attempting to recover the prisoner known as “The Scorpion” for the tattoo emblazoned across his back. When Travis discovers that his prisoner is a black ops specialist with the goods on both U.S. intelligence agencies and international criminals, it’s up to Travis and the expert S.W.A.T. team to keep The Scorpion and his billion-dollar secrets safe.   

Of course, the Special Weapons And Tactics division has been the subject of lots of movies and TV shows already, including the classic 1970s series S.W.A.T., the hit 2003 movie adaptation, the 2011 sequel S.W.A.T. Firefight and soon the upcoming TV reboot S.W.A.T., which is scheduled to premiere in November.

Watch the preview below, and check out S.W.A.T.: Under Siege on August 1!
