First trailer for Kite live-action adaptation blows minds


In a move that has blown my mind, cult classic anime, Kite, is on its way to the big screen via live action. The cast includes Samuel L. Jackson, subbing for Akai’s character, and India Eisley as Sawa. Not only known for its hyper violence, the anime was controversial due to its large focus on child rape and graphic sex, and the initial worldwide release was heavily edited.

As for the trailer: Hollywood, your care free, YOLO lifestyle has made me very sad indeed; this trailer basically giving away the entire movie. While it is an interesting concept lets hope they don’t try to make Kite ‘s spiritual sequel Mezzo Forte into a live action movie.

Directed by South African Director Ralph Ziman, Kite should be released sometime in 2014.
