Ninja Assassin Movie Trailer

Ninja Assassin Movie TrailerYou may watch below the action-packed movie trailer of Ninja Assassin, the upcoming movie directed by James McTeigue (who once brought us V For Vendetta) and starring Pop-singer turned actor Rain:

Hell God knows this Ninja Assassin trailer looks insanely awesome! Wow! It reminds of the best movies from Hong Kong of a few decades ago, but the whole thing boosted with the latest trick from Hollywood! The result is an explosive Ninja Assassin movie that for sure will mark the genre of its print.

I'm especially impatient to see the scene in the training room when Rain is attacked by his fellow ninjas (we have just a glimpse of it in the trailer of Ninja Assassin). Hope a preview clip of this scene of the movie Ninja Assassin will be released soon!

Ninja Assassin Movie with Rain

Rain - Ninja Assassin MovieNinja Assassin is an upcoming martial arts movie produced by Joel Silver and the Wachowski brothers. The film is directed by James McTeigue and is starring the South Korean pop star Rain (you may remember him as Taejo Togokahn in Speed Racer) and Naomie Harris. No official release date yet, but the rumor is that it will released during the first half of 2009.

Here below a clip showing Rain training for a fight choreography with the 87 Eleven crew (this stunt team worked on 300, Watchmen, Matrix and Bourne films):

Ninja Assassin Movie

Fight Choreography

"Raizo (Rain) is one of the world's deadliest assassins, having been kidnapped as a child and raised by the Ozunu Clan, believed by the world to be a myth. When Raizo's friend is executed by the clan, Raizo flees into hiding. He later reemerges, seeking revenge. Meanwhile, Mika Coretti (Naomie Harris) is a Europol agent who investigates money linked to political murders and finds that it is linked to the Ozunu Clan. She defies her superior, Ryan Maslow (Ben Miles), and retrieves secret agency files to find out more. The clan, finding out about the investigation, attempts to assassinate her, but she is rescued by Raizo. Hiding in Europe, Raizo and Mika must find a way to take down the Ozunu Clan." (Source: Wikipedia)

- Rain as Raizo, one of the world's deadliest assassins
- Naomie Harris as Mika Coretti, a Europol agent
- Rick Yune as Takeshi, the leader of a team sent by the Ozunu Clan
- Ben Miles as Ryan Maslow, Mika's Europol superior
- Sho Kosugi plays a yet unidentified role

Rain is really working hard for his role as Raizo in the Ninja Assassin movie. I don't know if he had any skills in martial arts before the movie, but I am quite impressed by his spectacular performance in this training video!

I bet Ninja Assassin can contend for the best action movie of 2009! Take your ninjato sword, check your shuriken and get ready for the Ninja Assassin!

Ninja Assassin Sneak preview

The movie Ninja Assassin was mostly filmed in Berlin in Germany. We may have a sneak preview of the film thanks to the local section of Reuters:

At the beginning of the clip, when the ninjas are chasing Raizo, all ignoring the roundabout traffic, one may recognize the base of the Victory Column, a famous monument in Berlin. Filming has actually mostly taken place on location throughout and in Berlin and in Babelsberg Studios in Postdam.

And at the end of the preview clip, the glimpse of Rain, in the ninja dojo with the flames in background, is quite impressive!

Fear not the weapon but the hand that wields it.

South Korean pop star Rain has been working out his body like hell for the movie Ninja Assassin. What you guess on the first poster is no CGI nor photoshop: that's real muscles!
