“Yes, she still has something.” Netflix has unveiled another trailer The wind, an exciting new sports drama that is also directorial debut for actress Halle berries. This opens on Netflix in November, despite not appearing at festivals or anywhere else yet. A disgraced MMA fighter finds redemption in the cage and the courage to face her demons as the son she had abandoned as an infant unexpectedly resumes her life. She left the sport on poor terms years earlier, but gets a chance to start a new life back in the octagon. Halle Berry also plays the lead role as Jackie Justice, with, among other things, a cast Adriane Lenox, Sheila Atim, Valentina Shevchenko, and Stephen McKinley Henderson. It’s a “triumphant story of a fighter regaining her power, in and out of the ring, after everyone has spoken her out.” This looks pretty good, even though it seems to be the same underdog-return-the-ring story we’ve seen in lots of boxing / fighter movies before.
Here is the first official trailer (+ poster) for Halle Berry’s The wind, directly from Netflix YouTube:
Jackie Justice (Halle Berry) is a mixed martial arts fighter who leaves the sport in disgrace. Down on her luck and smoldering with rage and regret years after her fight, she has lured into a brutal underground fight by her manager and boyfriend Desi (Adan Canto) and catches the attention of a fight league promoter (Shamier Anderson) who Jackie promises a life back in the octagon. But the road to redemption becomes unexpectedly personal when Manny (Danny Boyd, Jr.) – the son she gave up as an infant – shows up at her doorstep. The wind is directed by American actor-turned-filmmaker Halle berries, who debuted as a director with this film, after also producing the films Frankie & Alice and Kidnap former. The script is written by Michelle Rosenfarb. Produced by Basil Iwanyk, Brad Feinstein, Guymon Casady, Linda Gottlieb, Erica Lee, Gillian G. Hormel, Paris Kassidokostas-Latsis and Terry Douglas. This has not premiered at any festivals or anywhere else as far as we know. Netflix opens Berrys The wind in selected American theaters at November 17, 2021, then streaming on Netflix starting November 24 this fall. Who’s down for this? Looks good?
