After almost three decades of acting, Halle Berry officially debuts with Bruised, a sports film MMA which heads to Netflix later this year. Berry revealed on Twitter that her film will be awarded the most promising day of release and that she is excited that she is finally ready to view her passion project after three years. However, before moving to Netflix, Bruised had its international premiere in September of last year at the Toronto International Film Festival.
Berry is the leading Jackie Justice at Bruised, who follows the disgraced MMA fighter, facing one of the stars rising on the field, as well as her six-year-old son’s homecoming. It feels like a classic sports drama, which acknowledges and updates the emotional poignancy of the Tropics. Moreover, very little sports drama, therefore Bruised hopes to bring another worthy and inclusive story to the canon.
Prepare to see Berry as she embodies the fighter. A woman that’s no stranger to action and contusions, gets her hands bloodied. This sports drama, in the center of which is a lady who goes back to the sport she loves and shapes herself into her mother, looks like a movie that we won’t miss.
Here is all we know and expect from the film Bruised.
Bruised Release Date
The film premieres on Netflix on Wednesday 24 November 2021. This date is official as it has been tweeted by Berry. This release date has been announced 11 months after the movie was first screened at TIFF.
Following actors will be seen in the upcoming new movie Bruised:
- Halle Berry as Jackie Justice
- Danny Boyd Jr. as Manny Lyons Jr.
- Stephen McKinley Henderson as Pops
- Shamier Anderson
- Adan Canto
- Sheila Atim Bobbi Buddhakan Berroa
- Nikolai Nikolaeff as Igor
- Denny Dillon as Crazy Esther
Rosario Dawson is the star of an MMA Fighter who is beaten by her violent ex-friend (played by Jason Bateman). She meets other mixed martial women as she seeks inner peace following her family’s incarceration. It’s hardly this year’s most uplifting series, but it’s a fantastic time. It might not be the most elevating series, but it’s excellent.
After all, the performance is good and its gloomy tones make up some great moments. A woman is confronted by a personal catastrophe and emerges from the transformed trip. Mixed martial arts are difficult for anybody, but it may be difficult for women to get past their sport’s glass ceiling.
