Exploding Bullets, Exploding Heads And More In New Footage From KITE!


Actor Samuel L. Jackson's latest role after Spike Lee's Oldboy remake reverts back once more to the cinematic live-action rendering of Japanese manga/anime storytelling, this time in filmmaker Ralph Ziman's upcoming mystery science fiction action crime thriller, Kite.

Based on Yasuomi Umetsu's 1998 original video anime, Ziman's revisionist adaptation takes you into a not-too-distant future where terrorism and financial collapse have turned society into a state run by a corrupt police force that also benefits from the trafficking of young homeless girls. And here, we are introduced to actress India Eisley's portrayal of a vengeful young female assassin on a drug-infused, bloodthirsty, self-destructive journey as she is forced to kill specific targets for her late-father's ex-partner, while the defining lines between who she can and should not trust may become too blurred that she can't break free.

This week, we now have a brand new trailer and five-minute clip montage of the film featuring Jackson, Eisley, and actor Callan McAuliffe, granting viewers a blood-splattered, uber-violent look into just what awaits fans this year, courtesy of The Weinstein Company. Take a look below and stay tuned for more info.
