There are very few boxing films that pack much of a punch nowadays. Sure, you’ve got Creed and its progenitor Rocky fighting in their corner, but there is very little else that entices within the genre. Don’t get me wrong, there are some good boxing films out there, but there is a certain level of formulaic pacing to the affair.
The recent trailer for Jawbone (Vertical Films latest project) leaves the plot ambiguous enough to promise a different story to what we’ve seen in other recent films such as Bleed for This, but doesn’t quite extricate itself from the writhing horde.
Despite that, it is important to remember that this is only the first trailer, and as we get closer to the film’s release date, we’re likely to get more clarity into what will happen. Until then, keep your fingers crossed and your guard up.
Jawbone is out in cinemas March 17th!
