NSFW: Things Get Gory In First KITE Clip
In this first clip from the upcoming live-action remake of Yasuomi Umetsu's controversial 1998 Japanese anime, Sawa (India Eisley) blows the mind of a thug in an elevator. Those that worried the anime would be toned down for this adaptation needn't have! Extreme violence warning..
Never Underestimate a Girl with Nothing to Lose. Based on the groundbreaking, cult classic anime, KITE tells the story of Sawa (India Eisley, “The Secret Life of the American Teenager,” Underworld: Awakening), a young woman living in a corrupt society where crime and gangs terrorize the streets. When Sawa’s mother and policeman father are found victims of a grisly double homicide, she begins a ruthless pursuit for the man who murdered them. With the help of her father’s ex-partner, Karl Aker (Samuel L. Jackson, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, The Avengers,Django Unchained), and a mysterious friend from her past (Callan McAuliffe, The Great Gatsby, I Am Number Four), she becomes a merciless teen assassin, blasting her way through the dark world of human trafficking only to uncover a devastating truth.
Kite will premiere exclusively on DIRECTV on August 28th, followed by a theatrical/VOD release on October 10th.
