In stills from the movie he shows off her arm muscles in a leather vest as he throws a right hook.
Last year, the actor travelled to Malta with his American girlfriend Britney Theriot to film the movie.
They were also joined by former South Sydney Rabbitohs player Sam Burgess, who acted as an assistant to the Hollywood star on the set.
Meanwhile, Russell and Britney touched down in Sydney via private jet on Sunday.
Russell owns an expansive regional property in Nana Glen, just outside of Coffs Harbour. He typically splits his time between Sydney and Coffs Harbour.

The couple confirmed their long-rumoured romance with a kiss on the tennis court back in November 2020.
The Oscar winner is believed to have first met the (now former) actress on the set of his 2013 film Broken City.
Britney, who is the spitting image of Russell’s ex-wife Danielle Spencer, has since become a real estate agent.

The couple haven’t publicly spoken about their romance, despite being pictured together on numerous occasions.
Danielle and Russell married in April 2003 at his farm in Nana Glen. They separated in 2012 and finalised their divorce six years later.
Russell, meanwhile, will soon be building a major film studio in Coffs Harbour.
