Here's the trailer for The Bronx Bull, the unofficial sequel to Raging Bull

Two years after it began production as RAGING BULL II and being forced to change it's title to THE BRONX BULL, the sequel/prequel/remake to Martin Scorsese's classic boxing drama has released a trailer.

With a pretty good cast including William Forsythe, Joe Mantegna, Paul Sorvino, Penelope Ann Miller, and Natasha Henstridge, THE BRONX BULL looks every bit the low budget affair that it is. Shot in color, this version of Jake LaMotta's story ventures back to before he became a boxer and had to endure physical abuse from his father. Less a new chapter and more of a remake, THE BRONX BULL looks like an interesting film but a wholly unnecessary one.

"[A]lthough RAGING BULL gave us the adult version of Jake LaMotta, it did not provide the rare look into Jake's childhood nor the impact of the after effects of his violent life. THE BRONX BULL provides this much desired insight into the real-life struggle of a down-and-out pugilist who turns his anger, abusive childhood into a boxing career. Although his brute force turned him into a middleweight champion, it also created challenges in his life.

Overall, this looks better than I expected, but I was also expecting a heaping pile of shit, so that isn't saying much. When all is said and done, I may check this movie out someday, but not because it looks like anything more than as if The Asylum made a mockbuster of RAGING BULL.

THE BRONX BULL currently has no release date.
