There are a whole lot of films out there that are practically begging for a sequel. The Goonies. Indiana Jones and Last Crusade. Serenity. Hellboy II. Jumper. The list is virtually endless.

Raging Bull isn't one of them. There can't be many people who, after watching Scorsese's gritty, emotional boxing epic, turned around to their film-watching partner and said "wow, I can't wait to see the sequel."

Apparently there was, however, at least one - and so below is the trailer for the (unofficial) sequel to Raging Bull, taking its title from Jake LaMotta's other nickname - Bronx Bull. Directed by Martin Guigui, the film shows LaMotta's life before and after the events of Raging Bull.

Wait, no Joe Pesci?

The good news? It has a really quite impressive cast. Joe Mantegna, Paul Sorvino, Ray Wise, Alicia Witt, Penelope Ann Miller, Tom Sizemore, Cloris Leachman and Natasha Henstridge all join William Forsythe as LaMotta himself.

The bad news? It's a sequel to Raging Bull. That's true love-it-or-hate-it stuff right there, ladies and gents. Odds are you're already either completely intrigued, or thoroughly appalled.

Either way - this trailer is going to be an experience and a half: actually looks better than you'd think. The only real problem? It isn't in black and white...

I mean...really?

[The Bronx Bull](movie:1558254) is yet to receive a release date.

What do you guys think? Up for a Raging Bull sequel?
