Ready to set aside the horror that is the live-action Chun-Li flick? Feast your eyes on the UK trailer for the upcoming Blood: The Last Vampire live-action flick-- which, in case you're confused, IS called Blood: The Last Vampire-- Last Blood is the Japanese title, presumably different to avoid confusion...but since we're anime fans too, I figure having a second name might help.


Anyway! The trailer comes courtesy of Active Anime and isn't embeddable, so I'm afraid you'll have to go there to watch it. And on top of that hassle, it's a tiny video! But it's the best we've got so far, so do check it out.


On a more critical standpoint...it's a very classic over-the-top martial arts flick so far, and of course they've changed a lot of the canon. Unlike so many franchises, however, one of the “rules” of the Blood franchise is that every creator needs to make their own mark on the basic concept, which is why Blood+ is so incredibly different from Blood: The Last Vampire, etc. In this version, Saya isn't even a full-blooded vampire-- she's half. (Go ahead. Make the Blade reference. You know you want to.)


So. What do you think? Do you want to see it?

o_o I have to see it... all the blood and the decapitations... YES! XD

But on a more serious note xP

To me It does look kinda like a generic crazy Japanese fighting movie, only thing is that it has o_O really creepy monsters... and the one who's killing them is a little girl rather than some hot hero Asian man xD

BUT from the trailer, it does look awesome. I've read some of the manga and watched the anime as well as the movie and I enjoyed all of them, so shrugs I'm sure I'll enjoy this one too.

Amuck: Yeah, it does look a little generic if you're not familiar with the story-- which is why I'm extra curious as to how it turns out. :)

Yeah, hopefully they wont ruin the movie with a generic ending -_- I want something that goes... BOOM and um... and all crazy xP For this, I want a super ultra crazily insane ending leaving me like this O.O but... I doubt I'll get it xD

Any idea when its suppose to come out? O_o or did I just miss the date on the page where the trailer is? xD

Aww, man. That wire-work at the end was pretty silly; Jeon Ji-hyun looked like she was being thrown into the air kicking and screaming against her will. Maybe that's exactly what it was suppose to be, I dunno.

I want to have high hopes for this film, but every day that goes by with Universal keeping a lid on it has me thinking otherwise. That Twilight movie is about to drop on DVD. More and more young adult "vampire" books hit the shelves every month. Why isn't Universal going around and trying to play up the "broody, teenage vampire" angle? Isn't that a license to print money nowadays?
