Marina Antunes [Celluloid 02.10.11] movie trailer action fantasy

It's finally here and it's as cheesy as I expected - and that's not a bad thing. What else was anyone expecting from a hyperstylzed movie starring Josh Hartnett and which takes place in an alternate universe?

By this point, we've all seen the tidbits of information that have drifted in over the years since Bunraku was first announced in 2008 and heck, some have even seen it, but darned if this production hasn't been playing their cards close. Well, one way or another this was going to break out and now it's here though for how long, I don't know.

The trailer is pretty badass and yes, as pulpy and gleefully cheesy as I expected. Thank goodness they're not taking themselves too seriously here or we could have another The Spirit on our hands.

Trailer after the break.

Hmmmmm.... feels like a play. Great cast, but not convinced.

You lost me at "Josh Hartnett". Plus, it looks like a really bad Kill Bill rip-off.

Great article as always Marina! But this is not the movie trailer but a 'Sales' trailer according to producer Keith Calder. See his twitt here:

All I can say is I do hope that trail was made from un-finished footage. Its ROUGH around the edges.
