DTV Actioner Blood and Bone Trailer

Michael Jai White’s had himself a pretty funky movie career. He started out pretty well in “Spawn”, but seems to have gone into the direct-to-video route in recent years, with roles in “Undisputed 2″ and “Universal Solder: The Return”. His latest is “Blood and Bone”, and from the looks of the trailer, it looks like a bone-crunching action movie and ol Michael Jai White seems to have boned up (no pun intended) on his moves. This thing looks good despite its DTV pedigree, which is your usual “underground fighting” movie cliche.

Produced by Nick SImunek, Matthew Binns and Michael Mailer, directed by Ben Ramsey, and Starring Michael Jai White, BLOOD & BONE is the story of a mysterious drifter named Isaiah Bone who falls into a mob controlled street fighting ring in the back alleys of Los Angeles.

A post-modern Samurai movie, it blends the dangerous world of gangster controlled underground Mixed Martial Arts fighting, with a visually stunning, action packed plot that will transport audiences into the world before “Ultimate” fighting became mainstream.

Starring Michael Jai White, Julian Sands, Eamonn Walker, Dante Basco, Nona Gaye, Michelle Belegrin, Bob Sapp, Dick Anthony Williams, Kevin ‘Kimbo Slice’ Ferguson, Ron Yuan, and Gina Carano. Directed by Ben Ramsey.

The movie lands on DVD shelves September 15, 2009.

    Hey now, no mention of his role (as short as it) was in The Dark Knight? Universal Soldier: The Return was a theatrical release too :-P And also no mention of “Black Dynamite” the blaxploitation homage/spoof coming out soon (they need to hurry up and put it out already. The trailers and clips looked great and the reviews I’ve read give it nothing but props. I am glad to see him showing off his Martial arts skills, and if they ever do a Blade reboot as was being mentioned (doubtful but hey Hulk and Punisher got remakes) or continue the series (even more doubtful) I think he should be it. He has the look and the skills and is a decent actor. This movie looks pretty sick though. And RUFIOOOOOOO is in it.

    Michael jai White is a very good actor, as he shows in this film and in the tongue-in-cheek blaxploitation satire Black Dynamite that I saw a few days ago. Not only is fight scenes are credible, but his facial expression and body language (topless or in a suit) are as good as any other «White» actors, or black «Bone»-crunching fighters.
