Here’s a new trailer for a film that looks like it’s gonna gut punch audiences everywhere upon its release and we have the hard hitting new trailer to prove the fact in the new film Jungleland. Charlie Hunnam (Pacific Rim, Triple Frontier) stars along with Jack O’Connell (Unbroken) in a story of two brothers trying to survive in the barbaric world of underground bare knuckle fighting. Check out the new poster and trailer below!
Stan (Charlie Hunnam) and Lion (Jack O’Connell) are two brothers struggling to stay relevant in the underground world of bare-knuckle boxing. When Stan fails to pay back a dangerous crime boss (Jonathon Majors), they’re forced to deliver an unexpected traveler as they journey across the country for a high-stakes fighting tournament. While Stan trains Lion for the fight of his life, a series of events threaten to tear the brothers apart but their love for one another and belief in a better life keep them going in this gripping drama that proves family pulls no punches.
Helmed by Max Winkler, the movie also stars Jonathan Majors (Lovecraft Country, Da 5 Bloods), Jessica Barden (Hanna), and Emmy nominee John Cullum (Northern Exposure). Winkler also co-wrote the script along with Theodore B. Boseman and David Branson Smith.
This one looks emotional and uncompromising so expect a lot of drama. I get a serious Warrior vibe from the trailer and that film is one of my favorites and I get weepy at the end all the time. I’ve always had a soft spot for these types of films so I’m eagerly awaiting this one.
JUNGLELAND will hit Premium Video-On-Demand for a purchase price on Digital Platforms on November 10, 2020, from Paramount Home Entertainment, while Vertical Entertainment will release the film in over 100 theaters a few days earlier on November 6.
