It should come as no surprise that the movie is presented by Quentin Tarantino, for whom RZA composed some music on Kill Bill. It's co-written by Donny Liebowitz himself, Eli Roth, and if memory serves, the Hostel director helped RZA find his footage as a feature helmer. The story they've cooked up centers on a humble blacksmith in feudal China who creates iron fists and kicks the asses of many people to save his village. This trailer suggests that there's more going on than that, with all manner of different factions and motives, but it also makes it abundantly clear that everything is secondary to creating a live-action mashup of chopsocky movies, cartoons, and videogame aesthetics.
This trailer debuted today at IGN, and keep in mind it features lots of blood and over the top violence. Hence the red band.
The cast includes Russell Crowe, Lucy Liu, Rick Yune, Jamie Chung, Cung Le, David Bautista, Byron Mann, and Daniel Wu.
Here's the first theatrical poster for The Man With the Iron Fists. What's not to love about a trailer and poster that baost the tagline, "You can't spell kung fu without F and U?"
