Halle Berry is making her directorial debut in her new film Bruised, to be released Thursday.
The Oscar-winning actress not only will be starring as the lead but is also using her talents in her first-ever directing role for a feature film.
Berry will be playing as a mixed martial arts fighter who decides to leave the sport and is currently working as a cleaner. In this role, she finds her son (Danny Boyd Jr.), whom she gave up as an infant at her doorstep in need of a parental figure after the loss of his father.
The ex-MMA fighter is later persuaded to participate in a brutal underground organized fight that grabs the attention of a promoter who wishes to get her back in the ring permanently.
Bruised is slated to release in theaters on Nov. 17 before dropping on Netflix on Nov. 24. Watch the trailer below:
