Movies In Focus has been around the block a few times, so it takes an awful lot leave me speechless – and boy, does this trailer for Nicolas Cage‘s latest movie, Jiu Jitsu leave me lost for words.
It looks like some crazy Predator rip-off meets The Guyver meets Mortal Kombat. I watched this trailer three times and I still don’t know what’s going on.
Whatever it is, sign me up.
Here’s the synopsis from Dark Horizons:
Every six years an ancient order of expert Jiu Jitsu fighters faces a fearsome alien invader in a battle for Earth. For thousands of years, the fighters that protect Earth have played by the rules…until now.
When Jake Barnes (Moussi), a celebrated war hero and master Jiu Jitsu fighter, refuses to face Brax, the indomitable leader of the invaders, the future of humanity hangs in the balance. Injured and suffering from severe amnesia, Jake is captured by a military squad unequipped to fight the merciless intruder who have descended upon the planet.
After a brutal alien attack on the military squad, Jake is rescued by Wylie (Nicolas Cage), and a team of fellow Jiu Jitsu fighters who must help him recover his memory and regain his strength in order to band together and defeat Brax in an epic battle that will once again determine the fate of mankind.
Co-written and directed by Dimitri Logothetis, Jiu Jitsu hits cinemas, on-demand, and digital on 20 November 2020.
