After the unofficial Raging Bull sequel/prequel The Bronx Bull was slapped with a lawsuit by MGM in 2012, many fans thought the movie would never see the light of day. The lawsuit was eventually settled, with the movie changing its title from Raging Bull II to The Bronx Bull, and now we have our first look at this controversial film with the new trailer. William Forsythe stars as boxer Jake LaMotta, portrayed by Robert De Niro in Raging Bull, in what is described as both a prequel and a sequel to the 1980 classic, offering new insight into the boxer's turbulent life. Natasha Henstridge, Alicia Witt, Penelope Ann Miller, Joe Mantegna, Ray Wise and Paul Sorvino round out the supporting cast for director Martin Guigui's drama, which doesn't have a release date set at this time.
A combination prequel and sequel that explores before the rage and after the rage of world middleweight boxing champ Jake LaMotta's tumultuous life and times.
