The first trailer for the live-action anime-based Kite film from director Ralph Ziman (Gangster's Paradise: Jerusalema) began streaming on Friday. The trailer previews the film's action sequences after an introduction by film star Samuel L. Jackson.
The film stars lead actress India Eisley (The Secret Life of the American Teenager, Underworld: Awakening, Maleficent) and and Callan McAuliffe (I am... Number Four, New Director). The Deadline website describes the project as "a character-driven action film that charts the story of Sawa (Eisley), a young woman living in a failed state after the financial collapse, where a corrupt security force profits on the trafficking of young women. When Sawa's policeman father is killed, she vows to track the murderer down with the help of his ex-partner, Karl Aker (Jackson)."
