I’m pretty skeptical of live-action adaptations of animation, more specifically anime. There is a certain balance between the animation and the high-octane violence or over the top craziness that works, but when translated to live-action it has a tendency to be lost and look absurd. Now I’m not saying that the anime OVA adaptation of A Kite is exactly that, but it could be. Hard to tell from just this trailer and clip.
The clip features an introduction by Samuel L. Jackson who stars in the movie, followed by a trailer and five-minute or so clip from the movie. Not sure if this was legitimately posted or if it will be disappearing soon, so if you are interested, I would give a watch now.
Kite is directed by Ralph Ziman, starring Samuel L. Jackson, India Eisley, Callan McAuliffe, Cleo Rinkwest, Russel Savadier, Keci Eatock, Matthew Van Leeve and Jaco Muller, is due to arrive in theaters some time in 2014. (Via Blooding Disgusting)
