Brawler Trailer: Boot To The Head!

By Jay Stevens, Jr. | Trade News | August 10, 2012 | Comments ()


Brawler's plot focuses around an underground MMA fighter named Charlie Fontaine who has been forced out of the bloodsport since he sustained injuries while defending his younger brother and fellow fighter, Bobby. Said brother in turn shows his gratitude for the sacrifice by boffing Charlie's wife, Kat and all over his couch to boot! Enraged by his brother's wandering one-eyed nomad and the ruined upholstery, Charlie takes a Balboa-esque journey to regain his fighting shape. His ultimate goal is to get back into the illegal ring to take on his brother in a vengeance-fueled, grudge match...to the death! The trailer has some rather strong language that might be NSFW.

Brawler was written and directed by Chris Sivertson whose most recognizable work was the Lindsay Lohan clunker, I Know Who Killed Me. It was filmed in New Orleans in late 2010 and has been making the rounds in film festival circuit since then. It finally gets a wide release on September 14th.

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

    The studio obviously isn't named GFY for nothing.

  • luckypete

    The only good thing about this movie is Salvatore (Bryan Batt from Mad Men) getting to play a (presumably) bad ass mob man

    I'm starting to think Marc Senter (aka Bobby Fontaine) is a cokehead for real, as every movie he's ever appeared in has him blowing gaggers like he's in Studio 54 circa 1985. In "The Lost" he's an oddball, coke sniffing serial killer (which is honestly one of the weirdest performances you will ever see any actor turn in EVER). In "Red, White, and Blue" he's an HIV contracting, garage band-playing coke head. I haven't seen "I Know Who Killed Me" (nor will I ever), but I can guarantee at one point he's riding the White Pony, and I'm not talking about Lohan.

    Please tell me the title is referencing Tai Quon Leap!

  • I can't wait to visit my folks next time, let my bags drop with a thud, and then say that tag line.

    How is this not titled Warriorz?

  • blacksred

    why do fight movies Now have to be "based on true events"?

  • TK

    Sooo... it's Warrior, but stupid.

  • Maguita NYC

    On that particular note, some wishful thinking on my part: If only we got to see some silently intense Tom Hardy/Jennifer Morrison action on a couch...

  • zeke_the_pig

    Intercourse is too human and too normal an act for Tom Hardy.
