With only a week away, the kung-fu epic — and RZA’s directorial debut — “The Man with the Iron Fists” is pulling out all the stops to get people excited about the film. The studio has dropped a new clip and a red band featurette that showcase the film’s crazy action scenes.
First up is a short EPK with brief interviews from the major cast members — Russell Crowe and Lucy Liu, among others — and co-writer/producer Eli Roth, along with RZA himself. By far the best thing about the video though is the quick glimpses of the gore and action, which seems to be built primarily around practical in-camera effects. It looks like RZA has learned well from his buddy Quentin Tarantino.
A short clip of a Lucy Liu-centric fight scene has also surfaced and while it doesn’t provide a whole of lot context, it does showcase the intensity that trailers have hinted at. “The Man with the Iron Fists” opens next week on November 2nd.
