Universal has been rolling out character trailers for RZA‘s upcoming kung-fu flick, The Man with the Iron Fists, and two new ones are out today. The first features Russell Crowe‘s character, Jack Knife. I’m still a bit surprised Crowe is in the movie. It looks like a lot of fun, and he rarely does light, breezy genre fare any more. If anything, The Man with the Iron Fists looks like a sillier version of The Quick and the Dead, and I’m all for it. The other trailer shines a light on David Bautista‘s Brass Body, who looks like he’s basically Colossus from X-Men.
Hit the jump to check out the trailer. The film also stars RZA, Cung Le, Byron Mann, Rick Yune, Pam Grier, and Jamie Chung. The Man with the Iron Fists opens November 2nd.
Here’s the official synopsis for The Man with the Iron Fists:
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, co-writer and leading man, RZA–alongside an exciting international cast led by Russell Crowe and Lucy Liu–tells the epic story of warriors, assassins and a lone outsider hero who all descend on one fabled village in China for a winner-takes-all battle for a fortune in gold. 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.
