Signature Entertainment presents Man Down at Cinemas and on Digital from 31st March. Starring Shia LaBeouf, Gary Oldman, Kate Mara and Jai Courtney.
In a savage post-apocalyptic America, U.S. Marine Gabriel Drummer (Shia LaBeouf, Fury), searches desperately for the whereabouts of his estranged son, Jonathan and wife, Natalie (Kate Mara, The Martian).

Man Down is directed by Dito Montiel, written by Adam G. Simon and Dito Montiel with music by Clint Mansell.
