A new red-band trailer for RZA’s The Man with the Iron Fists has landed online. Though it’s not wildly different from the film’s first red-band trailer, this one does show a bit more of the supporting cast of characters and some other scenes of stylishly impressive violence. Most importantly, though, The Man with the Iron Fists still looks absolutely batshit crazy. The film was directed by RZA based on a script he wrote with Eli Roth, with Quentin Tarantino onboard as the film’s producer. The story takes place in feudal China and centers on a small village’s weapon-maker who must defend its peoples.
Hit the jump to watch the new trailer. The film also stars Russell Crowe, Lucy Liu, Cung Le, Byron Mann, Rick Yune, David Bautista, Pam Grier and Jamie Chung. The Man with the Iron Fists opens on November 2nd.

Here’s the official synopsis:
Quentin Tarantino presents The Man With the Iron Fists, an action-adventure inspired by kung-fu classics as interpreted by his longtime collaborators RZA and Eli Roth. Making his debut as a big-screen director and leading man, RZA—alongside a stellar international cast led by Russell Crowe and Lucy Liu—tells the epic story of warriors, assassins and a lone outsider hero in nineteenth-century China who must unite to destroy the clan traitor who would destroy them all.
Since his arrival in China’s Jungle Village, the town’s blacksmith (RZA) has been forced by radical tribal factions to create elaborate tools of destruction. When the clans’ brewing war boils over, the stranger channels an ancient energy to transform himself into a human weapon. As he fights alongside iconic heroes and against soulless villains, one man must harness this power to become savior of his adopted people.
Blending astonishing martial-arts sequences from some of the masters of this world with the signature vision he brings as the leader of the Wu-Tang Clan and as one of hip-hop’s most dominant figures of the past two decades, RZA embarks upon his most ambitious, stylized and thrilling project to date.
