She spent months learning Pekiti-Tirsia Kali, a Filipino martial art that teaches how to use improvised weapons for self-defense.
And the result is an Anne Curtis that is decidedly badass in her role as a ruthless drug enforcement agent in Erik Matti's "Buy Bust."
She plays a woman sent to snuff out a drug den, but finds herself and her team trapped inside it after being set-up and betrayed.
In the new mini-trailer, Curtis beats the living daylights out of several men inside a cramped room in a skillfully directed sequence.
"YOU become the WEAPON," Curtis wrote as she explains to her fans the advantages of learning Pekiti-Tirsia Kali.
There's no release date yet for "Buy Bust" but it is slated for this year.
