"Mercenaries" will be enjoying it's Premiere Screening tonight at San Diego Comic-Con.

"Mercenaries" is an upcoming action film starring Kristanna Loken, Brigitte Nielsen, Vivica A. Fox, Cynthia Rothrock, Zoë Bell and Nicole Bilderback.

Directed by Christopher Ray and produced by David Michael Latt, David Rimawi and Paul Bales, "Mercenaries" is a "mockbuster" of "Expendables 3", in the tradition of The Asylum's recent film catalog. It is written by Edward DeRuiter.

In the film, a diplomatic official is captured and imprisoned while touring a war zone, so a team of elite female commandos is assembled to infiltrate a women's prison for a daring rescue.

While early glimpses of the film look fun, the only question I have is why these kick-ass ladies - particularly, Rothrock, Loken and Bell - don't merit slots in high-profile franchises like "The Expendables" or a bigger-budget film of their own?

"Mercenaries" is in theaters and VOD August 8.
