Opening on November 25th is director James McTeigue’s Ninja Assassin. The film stars Asian superstar Rain in the title role and as you can easily put together from the title, it’s about Ninja’s. And assassin’s. Also, the film is loaded with action and blood so if you’re into either of those things, this is pretty much a must see movie. Finally, it’s produced by the Wachowski Brothers and Joel Silver (The Matrix Trilogy, V for Vendetta), and they’ve done a few things you might have liked….
Anyway, if you’d like a taste of the movie, after the jump you can watch six clips. In the coming weeks check back for interviews with the cast and filmmakers. Until then….
Raizo is one of the deadliest assassins in the world. Taken from the streets as a child, he was transformed into a trained killer by the Ozunu Clan, a secret society whose very existence is considered a myth. But haunted by the merciless execution of his friend by the Clan, Raizo breaks free from them…and vanishes. Now he waits, preparing to exact his revenge. In Berlin, Europol agent Mika Coretti has stumbled upon a money trail linking several political murders to an underground network of untraceable assassins from the Far East. Defying the orders of her superior, Ryan Maslow, Mika digs into top secret agency files to learn the truth behind the murders. Her investigation makes her a target, and the Ozunu Clan sends a team of killers, led by the lethal Takeshi, to silence her forever. Raizo saves Mika from her attackers, but he knows that the Clan will not rest until they are both eliminated. Now, entangled in a deadly game of cat and mouse through the streets of Europe, Raizo and Mika must trust one another if they hope to survive…and finally bring down the elusive Ozunu Clan. The film also stars Naomie Harris, Ben Miles, Sho Kosugi, Rick Yune
