Second Trailer The Art Of Self Defense

Bleecker Street has released the official trailer for the dark comedy “The Art of Self-Defense” with Riley Stearns set to pen and direct the film which will have its theatrical release on July 12th.

Jesse Eisenberg plays Casey, a man who is attacked at random on the street and enlists in a local dojo led by a charismatic and mysterious Sensei (Alessandro Nivola), in an effort to learn how to defend himself.

What he uncovers is a sinister world of fraternity, violence and hypermasculinity and a woman (Imogen Poots) fighting for her place in it. Casey undertakes a journey, both frightening and darkly funny, that will place him squarely in the sights of his enigmatic new mentor.
