The upcoming dark comedy The Art of Self-Defense will be in select theaters July 12 and nationwide starting next Friday, July 19.

The movie stars Jesse Eisenberg, Alessandro Nivola, and Imogen Poots. And there is a new clip from the movie now available!


The movie’s synopsis is described as follows:

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.

Watch the official trailer for The Art of Self-Defense below, and follow the movie on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. Go see the movie in theaters on July 19th!
