WATCH: Holy crap the trailer for Nicholas Cage’s Jiu Jitsu looks insanely great

October 14th, 2020 by Marc Comments

Holy crap, this new Predator movie looks crazy! 

Seriously though, this looks awfully brilliant, in an awfully brilliant sort of way. Nicholas Cage leading a team of mercenaries to fight an alien monster who comes to earth to hunt every six years.

Yes, it’s exactly as you’d imagine… but, in fairness, there’s some quality fight stars here including Frank Grillo, Alain Moussi and Tony Jaa and, as a result, the fight scenes look superb.

Anyway, check out the trailer and let me know your thoughts, gang!

In Jiu Jitsu 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, 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.

The movie stars Nicholas Cage (Raising Arizona, Ghostrider), Alain Moussi (Kickboxer: Retaliation, Kickboxer: Vengeance), Frank Grillo (The Purge: Election Year, Captain America: Civil War), Rick Yune (Alita: Battle Angel, Olympus Has Fallen), Marie Avgeropoulos (“The 100,” 50/50), Juju Chan (“Wu Assassins,” Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: Sword of Destiny), Tony Jaa (Ong-Bak franchise, Furious 7). Dimitri Logothetis (Kickboxer: Retaliation, Kickboxer: Vengeance) directs.

Jiu Jitsu kicks its way into theaters, on-demand, and digital on November 20, 2020.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
