An updated trailer has been streamed for the live-action adaptation of the anime "Kite" which gets an international premiere on July 18 and an exclusive DirecTV premiere on August 28.
Last year, in 2013, it was announced that the Japanese anime movie called “Kite” was going to get a live-action anime adaptation starring Samuel L. Jackson. January of this year, the first trailer was streamed. Now, a new trailer has been streamed with is an updated version of the first trailer; but, this serves as the first “official” trailer for the movie. It is not going to get a mainstream theatrical release; it's probably due to the lack of familiarity of Kite in general along with the graphic sexual content present in the original anime.
The world premiere of Kite will be tomorrow at the Fantasia Film Festival which takes place from July 17 until August 6 in Montreal, Canada. Then, it will have an exclusive premiere on August 28 via DirecTV. Meaning, if you have DirecTV, you can catch the exclusive premiere. Then, you can catch it on iTunes come on October 10.
Like in the anime, the live-action film focuses on Sawa who goes to school; but, she is actually an assassin who got orphaned due to the death of her parents. Sawa is groomed to be a professional assassin by her father's corrupt ex-partner who is played by Jackson. India Eisley takes on the role of Sawa.
In regards of the anime, Sawa vanishes after; there is “Kite Liberator” which takes place years later. It focuses on young girl named Monaka who is called the Angel of Death. She takes on the mantle after Sawa vanishes.
Sometime later, there is “Mezzo Forte” which is called the spiritual successor to Kite. Sawa makes a cameo appearance as a police inspector. It is possible that Sawa is living a new life as a cop. This focuses on a group of freelancers known as the Danger Service Agency; it is followed by the sequel called “Mezzo DSA.”
