Halle Berry Transforms Into MMA Fighter For New Netflix Film ‘Bruised’ (VIDEO)

Halle Berry is transforming into a mixed martial artist for an upcoming film Bruised that is set to be released in theaters and on Netflix. The film will hit the silver screen on November 17, before landing on Netflix a week later on Thanksgiving Day.

The film will be Berry’s directorial debut.

On Thursday, the official trailer for Bruised debuted and we got our first look at Berry inside of the cage.

“Jackie Justice (Halle Berry) is a mixed martial arts fighter who leaves the sport in disgrace. Down on her luck and simmering with rage and regret years after her fight, she’s coaxed into a brutal underground fight by her manager and boyfriend Desi (Adan Canto) and grabs the attention of a fight league promoter (Shamier Anderson) who promises Jackie a life back in the octagon,” the synopsis reads.

“But the road to redemption becomes unexpectedly personal when Manny (Danny Boyd, Jr.) — the son she gave up as an infant — shows up at her doorstep.”

Bruised also features branding from all-women’s MMA promotion Invicta FC and a starring role for UFC women’s flyweight champion Valentina Shevchenko in the “triumphant story of a fighter who reclaims her power, in and out of the ring, when everyone has counted her out.”

Additional information on the upcoming film can be seen below.
