Watch Jared Leto fight to join the Yakuza in dramatic and bloody trailer for ‘The Outsider’

The movie premieres on Netflix next month

The first trailer for The Outsider has been released.

The movie stars Jared Leto as Nick Lowell, an American soldier imprisoned in Japan following the end of World War II. His Yakuza cellmate helps to free him, but Lowell must then fight to join the crime group in order to pay him back.

“In life, sometimes we fight the current, and other times it’s important to flow the river,” Leto says in the trailer, which shows him being held at gunpoint by the Yakuza. Watch it below.

The Outsider will be available on Netflix from March 9, and also stars Emile Hirsch, Raymond Nicholson, Tadanobu Asano, and more. Tom Hardy was originally connected to the role of Lowell, before Leto signed on to the project.

Meanwhile, Leto is set to tour the UK next month with his band 30 Seconds To Mars. The rock trio will play a series of dates in March, kicking off in Cardiff on March 23.

30 Seconds To Mars will play:

Cardiff, Motorpoint Arena (March 23)
Manchester, Arena (24)
Glasgow, SSE Hydro (25)

London, O2 Arena (27)
Birmingham, Arena (29)

The group shared their latest single ‘Dangerous Night’ in January, following the release of ‘Walk On Water‘ last summer. Their fifth album is expected to be released sometime this year.
