Excelsis Movie Challenges Movie Genre To A Fight For Everything

Producers of the movie "Excelsis", a female Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) based feature film, made a unique announcement through a series of tweets that sent ripples waves through an entire movie genre. The movie Producers challenged the entire Drama Sport movie genre to an unconventional fight for everything.

In the movie "Excelsis", Cassady Jones battles through the amateur MMA ranks awaiting her big break. Suddenly, Marcus Moretti, a nefarious fight promoter offers Cassady a chance to enter a tournament in which the winner is offered a professional contract with Excelsis FC. Meanwhile Cassady’s sister, Scarlett Jones, a former Excelsis FC women’s champion becomes suspicious of Marcus’s intentions and quickly uncovers a devious plot that could change the entire women’s MMA sport.

Understanding that her big break is finally at hand, Cassady decides to take advantage of the opportunity and embarks on an epic journey towards the professional MMA ranks. However, while Cassady is down for the count she realizes that she’s not just in another fight; she’s in the fight for everything!

To continue, the Drama Sport movie genre is home to blockbuster movies such as "Rocky" 1976 and the entire "Rocky" franchise starring Sylvester Stallone. Moreover, the genre has seen its top 100 movies over the past thirty years gross in excess of three billion ($3,000,000,000) dollars in theatrical releases alone, according to Box Office Mojo. The genre is also home to other blockbuster movies such as "The Fighter" in 2010 starring Mark Wahlberg which currently ranks as #10 in the genre’s top 100 and "Warrior" in 2011 starring Tom Hardy which currently ranks as #64 in the genre’s top 100.

While the genre has played a critical role in the history of modern cinema, there has only been one other movie title in the genre’s top 100 over the past thirty years that has featured a female-led cast in a combat sport or mixed martial arts feature film, which was "Million Dollar Baby" 2004 starring Hilary Swank. "Million Dollar Baby" currently ranks as #8 in the genre’s top 100. As a result, "Excelsis" is now on pace to become the first female Mixed Martial Arts based feature film in the history of the Drama Sport movie genre.

Executive Producer Jaze Bordeaux was quoted as saying; "with a female led cast, a win for Excelsis could redefine the role of women in film by collapsing stagnant mindsets. This isn’t just another fight; this is the fight for everything". The challenge creates a potential super fight that would pit one movie against an entire movie genre.

While this potential David versus Goliath-like super fight takes its form, "Excelsis" is set to move into production later this summer and will feature dynamic performances from Karlee Rose who stars as Cassady Jones and Avaah Blackwell starring as Scarlett Jones while showcasing surreal mixed martial arts fight scenes, original music score and an inspiring story to create a movie for the ages.
