First trailer & clips for live action adaptation of Manga ‘Kite’ arrive, starring Samuel L. Jackson




Samuel L. Jackson is a busy man, but has taken time out to introduce a trailer and a number of clips for his upcoming new movie, Kite. The film is a live action adaptation of a classic Manga anime, and also stars to sexy India Eisley (The Secret Life of an American Teenager, Underworld: Awakening) as the films main revenge seeking character.

The video below was discovered by Bloody Disgusting, and features an introduction by Jackson, followed by the trailer and a couple of clips. Be prepared for lots of fighting, a pulsing dance music soundtrack, heaps of bright lights and colours, and Eisley looking seriously hot in some very pleasing outfits.

The trailer and clips may look a bit tacky, and some of the acting is ropey, but Kite looks like a lot of fun for those who are not too fussy on quality. Kite looks destined for cult status, and I for one am looking forward to it.

Ralph Ziman (Gangster’s Paradise: Jerusalema) directs the adaptation, and the cast includes Samuel L. Jackson, India Eisley and Callan McAuliffe.

The film see’s Sawa (Eisley) hell bent on revenge for her police Father’s murder, and her Father’s partner Karl (Jackson) trains Sawa to become a deadly assassin. The anime is known for its extreme violence, and there would appear to be plenty of that in the movie adaptation too.

A keen enthusiast and collector of all horror and extreme films. I can be picky as i like quality in my horror. This doesn't necessarily mean it has to be a classic, but as long as it has something to impress me then i'm a fan. I watch films by the rule that if it doesn't bring out some kind of emotive response then it aint worth watching.
