Hulu has just released a trailer for their forthcoming original film, Onyx Collective’s Bruiser.
The film marks Miles Warren’s feature debut, telling a story about fathers, families, and the effects of toxic masculinity. Till’s Jalyn Hall stars as Darious, a 14-year-old kid who explores his own boundaries through a string of interactions with Malcolm, his strict father, and Porter, a drifter.
Eloquent and simplistic in nature, the trailer adopts Warren’s artistic poignancy, allowing the characters to tell their own story. Though it does give away quite a bit of the ultimate narrative, it’s a testament to Warren’s vision, fully adopting his stylistic approach to a story that is both personal and universal.
Co-starring 2023 Independent Spirit Award Nominee Trevante Rhodes, Shamier Anderson, and Shingle Azoroh, Bruiser hits the streamer on February 24.
About Stephen Davis
I owe this hobby/career to the one and only Stephanie Peterman who, while interning at Fox, told me that I had too many opinions and irrelevant information to keep it all bottled up inside. I survived my first rated R film, Alive, at the ripe age of 8, it took me months to grasp the fact that Julia Roberts actually died at the end of Steel Magnolias, and I might be the only person alive who actually enjoyed Sorority Row…for its comedic value of course. While my friends can drink you under the table, I can outwatch you when it comes iconic, yet horrid 80s films like Adventures in Babysitting and Troop Beverly Hills. I have no shame when it comes to what I like, and if you have a problem with that, then we’ll settle it on the racquetball court. I see too many movies to actually win any film trivia contest, so don’t waste your first pick on me. My friends rent movies from my bookcase shelves, and one day I do plan to start charging. I long to live in LA, where my movie obsession will actually help me fit in, but for now I am content with my home in Austin. I prefer indies to blockbusters, Longhorns to Sooners and Halloween to Friday the 13th. I miss the classics, as well as John Ritter, and I hope to one day sit down and interview the amazing Kate Winslet.
