The Art of Self-Defense Trailer with Eisenberg, Nivola and Poots

Bleecker Street has provided us with the new trailer and poster for The Art of Self-Defense, opening in limited theaters on July 12th before expanding wide on July 19th.

After he’s attacked on the street at night by a roving motorcycle gang, timid bookkeeper Casey (Jesse Eisenberg) joins a neighborhood karate studio to learn how to protect himself. Under the watchful eye of a charismatic instructor, Sensei (Alessandro Nivola), and hardcore brown belt Anna (Imogen Poots), Casey gains a newfound sense of confidence for the first time in his life.

But when he attends Sensei’s mysterious night classes, he discovers a sinister world of fraternity, brutality and hyper-masculinity, presenting a journey that places him squarely in the sights of his enigmatic new mentor.

Audacious and offbeat, The Art of Self-Defense is an original dark comedy that takes toxic masculinity to absurd extremes.

The Art of Self-Defense is produced by End Cue and written and directed by Riley Stearns (Faults). The film is produced by Andrew Kortschak, Cody Ryder, Stephanie Whonsetler and Walter Kortschak. The executive producers are Andrew Karpen, Munika Lay, Kent Sanderson, David Zellner, and Nathan Zellner.
