Trailer: Miami Connection

9:00 AM on 09.25.2012

Behold, the official re-release trailer for Miami Connection, the Citizen Kane of Taekwondo new wave band movies. The trailer was edited by Hobo with a Shotgun director Jason Eisener, and it makes great use of the song "Against the Ninja." It's a fine complement to François Simard's poster for Miami Connection, which evokes the feel of classic VHS box art.

I've been pretty evangelical to friends about Miami Connection as a rediscovered cult classic, especially since the 2012 New York Asian Film Festival. During our coverage, I got to interview Grandmaster Y.K. Kim, the film's star and co-director. I also saw the movie multiple times.

Look for Flixist's review of Miami Connection closer to the film's theatrical run in November.
