Trailer Watch: RZA’s The Man with the Iron Fists red band trailer

RZA’s The Man with the Iron Fists has a red band trailer out, and I’m guessing if you’ve seen the first trailer, this isn’t going to change your opinion of it.

The plot is… hahaha, who cares? Just watch the trailer.

Russell Crowe, RZA, Lucy Liu, Rick Yune, Jamie Chung, Cung Le, Dave Bautista, Byron Mann, Daniel Wu, and Pam Grier star in RZA’s directorial debut, which he co-wrote with Eli Roth (Hostel). Catch it in theaters on November 2, 2012.

Trailer Watch: RZA’s The Man with the Iron Fists

Thanks to SnoutyPig, we have the trailer for RZA’s directorial debut, The Man with the Iron Fists. Co-written by RZA and Eli Roth, the film centers around a blacksmith in feudal China (played by RZA) who reluctantly comes to the defense of his small village. Clearly, we’re not going for historical accuracy here, because China had its borders locked up tight to foreigners, and clearly, neither RZA nor Russell Crowe are Chinese… but if that’s something you think needs to be nitpicked about, how about shutting up for those of us who know how to lighten the fuck up? This shit looks sweeeeet.

The film stars Russell Crowe, Cung Le, Lucy Liu, Byron Mann, RZA, Rick Yune, David Bautista, and Jamie Chung. Corey Yuen was the fight choreographer. For whatever reason, it doesn’t have a release date yet.

Trailer Watch: Joseph Gordon-Levitt in Premium Rush

This one has kind of a goofy premise and the fact that David Koepp wrote it doesn’t carry a lot of weight with me, but Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Michael Shannon have pretty good taste in scripts lately, and the direction by John Kamps looks solid enough to keep things interesting, so who knows?

Premium Rush co-stars Dania Ramirez and Jamie Chung (Sucker Punch). It hits theaters in the former No Man’s Land of January — now the home of minor box office hits like Cloverfield and… uh… Paul Blart: Mall Cop, specifically on the 13th.

UPDATE (10/22/11): Dark Horizons is reporting that Premium Rush has been moved to an August 24, 2012, release date. No explanation was given.
