The new Jiu Jitsu trailer sees Nicolas Cage lead a bunch of fighters against an alien invader in a battle of wits and martial arts. The first look at the upcoming action film has B-grade vibes all around but it still does boast a somewhat impressive list of talent.
Joining Cage in this sci-fi meets martial arts meets fantasy actioner are Tony Jaa, Frank Grillo, Alain Moussi, and Juju Chan. The film is directed Dimitri Logothetis, who previously helmed Kickboxer: Retaliation.
The film centres on a group of fighters who have to contend against sword-wielding martial arts trained aliens. Every six years, an ancient order of expert Jiu Jitsu fighters faces a vicious race of alien invaders in a battle for Earth.
For thousands of years, the fighters that protect Earth have won…until now. When celebrated war hero Jake Barnes (Moussi) is defeated by Brax, the indomitable leader of the invaders, the future of humanity hangs in the balance.
Injured and suffering from amnesia, Jake is rescued by Wylie (Cage), Keung and his team of fellow Jiu Jitsu fighters. They must help Jake to regain his strength in order to band together and defeat Brax in an epic battle that will once again determine the fate of mankind.
Jiu Jitsu releases in selected theatres and on digital on 20 November.
