Action star Tiger Shroff has had a pretty successful breakthrough in the last few years since debuting in the 2014 film, Heropanti. He followed suit this year with his sophomore starring role in the Raid-inspired action romance, Baaghi, and now he's pivoting to the superhero genre with Remo D'Souza's latest, A Flying Jatt, which, despite some lackluster wirework and visuals, still garners something spectacular and comedic to couple with the action for all audiences.
For this, we get Shroff in the role of India's youngest superhero - a haphazard and reluctant savior who's got the hero pose down packed in this trailer, but still needs work on his overall delivery. Also starring is Dishoom co-star Jacqueline Fernandez along with the looming threat that is Nathan Jones as the film's mighty supervillain. A teaser has already gone viral but a full trailer came out this week offering plenty to sample with ahead of its August 25, so check it out below tell us what you think!

I think it's safe to say you know your movie sucks when you not only screw the rights holders whose name and content you base your unsanctioned film on, but when said rights holders join the chorus of critics panning your movie from literally every angle of the internet. That is the level of achievement you have reached if your name is George Nolfi and you've directed a film called Birth Of The Dragon, long hyped to be a hopefully legendary homage to Bruce Lee, the late founder of Jeet Kune Do and patriarch of American martial arts movie fandom.

John Stockwell's Kickboxer: Vengeance is now available wherever movies are sold in the U.S. and Canada with other screenings pending.
