WHAT'S THE MEANING?
'Semper Fi' is a shortcut for the Latin phrase 'Semper Fidelis' which literal translation means "always faithful". It also happens to be the motto of the United States Marine Corps.
DID YOU KNOW?
Did you know that 'Semper Fi' lead actor Jai Courtney admitted that he was once to buff for a role? The 33-year old Australian actor is known to be quite a big guy. Because of this, he once had to trim his weight down for a role in the 2015 sci-fi film Terminator: Genysis. In an interview with Elle Magazine, Jai admitted that he needed to be less physically imposing because of that role. That role wasn't about having an athletic build. The production needed Courtney to have a more unassuming or boyish look. This challenge proved to be tough for him but he eventually pulled it off. For another movie, 2016's Suicide Squad, he did a little bit more by training in three different martial arts.
Jai Courtney is a relatively new actor that popped out into the Hollywood film scene. He first entered the mainstream through 2012's Jack Reacher. From then on, he went on to become one of the most versatile actors known around the industry. He has amassed roles in different hit movies like A Good Day to Die Hard, the Divergent series. and a Captain Boomerang role in DC’s Suicide Squad. There seem to be endless possibilities for the 6'1 Australian actor. His role in the upcoming 'Semper Fi' movie is somewhat different from the ones he had previously played. Playing Callahan, a member of the United States Marine Corps, in this new film is much awaited. Judging by the film's trailer alone, the movie seems to be more than just a drama-action hybrid. Jai Courtney's acting career has just begun taking off and his best roles are probably yet to be seen.
