And the movies discover MMA


After years of courting the masses, the world of the cinema and of MMA seem to finally be going steady.

The USA can now look forward to the end-of-the-year premier of full-length movie “Warrior” (with cameos from Nathan Marquardt, Yves Edwards and Roan Jucão!), where two brothers dispute a title belt (see below).

Now around here, news about MMA and Jiu-Jitsu movies are breaking every week.

There are already projects underway to produce a movie about Rickson, one on Minotauro, and recently the director of the movie “Jean Charles”, Henrique Goldman, said he is getting ready to produce “O Cara” (“The Man”), to be shot in Brazil, the USA and Japan. The movie will be a work of fiction, “but anchored in reality,” Henrique is quoted as saying in the “Gente Boa” column of O Globo newspaper. “These guys have amazing life stories – stories of overcoming hardships,” he added.

It was in Canada, though, that the first feature film of this new genre made some noise, at the documentary festival Toronto Hot Docs. “Fightville” tells the tale of the hard lives led by athletes who may never make it to stardom, but live and breathe fighting. Check it out, and for more on what goes on behind-the-scenes in the underbelly of MMA, check out the current issue of CHOKE, GRACIEMAG’s MMA supplement, now in bookstores.

E o cinema descobre o MMA

Após anos de paquera e alguns amassos, o mundo do cinema e do MMA parece que estão engatando um relacionamento firme.

Nos EUA, a expectativa é pela estreia no fim do ano do longa de ficção “Warrior” (com pontas de Nathan Marquardt, Yves Edwards e Roan Jucão!), onde dois irmãos disputam um cinturão (veja abaixo).

Já aqui, notícias de filmes sobre MMA e Jiu-Jitsu pipocam toda semana.

Já há projetos para um filme sobre Rickson, sobre Minotauro, e recentemente o diretor de “Jean Charles”, Henrique Goldman, disse estar preparando “O cara”, a ser rodado no Brasil, EUA e Japão. Será um filme de ficção, “mas ancorado na realidade”, disse Henrique na coluna Gente Boa de “O Globo”. “Esses caras têm histórias de vida maravilhosas, de superação”, completou.

Foi no Canadá, porém, que o primeiro filme dessa nova safra já fez algum barulho, no festival de documentários de Toronto Hot Docs. “Fightville” procura mostrar a vida dura dos atletas que possivelmente nunca vão chegar ao estrelato, mas que comem e respiram luta.
