KITE: New Trailer And Images From The Anime Adaptation Starring Samuel L. Jackson
This one has pretty much flown under our radar, but a decent trailer and a new batch of stills from the upcoming movie adaptation of Yasuomi Umetsu's popular comic might go some way to muster up a bit of anticipation. Click on to see what you tink..
A cult classic, by Yasuomi Umetsu, renowned for its stylistically graphic depictions of violent action and sensuality, concerns a young woman named Sawa who, after the murder of her parents, is taken off the streets by a crooked, Svengali-like detective employing homeless children to do his dirty work. Trained to kill, she exacts street justice against the detective’s chosen targets, until she is able to break free of the abusive and manipulative control he has over her.
Kite stars Samuel L. Jackson as Karl Aker, India Eisley as Sawa, Callan McAuliffe as Oburi, Russel Savadier as Old Boy, Jaco Muller as Kratsov, Liam J. Stratton as Sawa's Father and Keci Eatock as Young Sawa. The movie hits DirecTV on August 28th, and VOD and theatres on October 10th.
