Footage From the Live-Action Kite Adaptation Surfaces Online

I haven’t followed director Ralph Ziman’s live-action adaptation of “Kite” as closely as others, but I gotta say I like what I’m seeing. Not only is 2014 shaping up to be a fantastic year for action cinema — check out the latest “Raid 2″ trailer if you doubt these words — there’s apparently plenty of Samuel L. Jackson to go around. I can’t say that’s necessarily a bad thing.

“Kite” tells the story of a young woman who tracks down her murdered father’s killer with a little help from the cop’s ex-partner. Judging from the trailer and clip embedded below, there’s tons of nastiness on-tap for those who’ve been patiently awaiting this film’s arrival.

If this Jackson flick doesn’t do it for you, then check out “Big Game,” “Barely Lethal,” “Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” and the upcoming “RoboCop” remake to get your fix. Like I said, there’s certainly no shortage of movies featuring the guy on the horizon this year.

“Kite” also stars ndia Eisley, Callan McAuliffe, and Cleo Rinkwes. Look for this thing to arrive at some point during 2014. The clip and trailer are hanging out below.

Todd was raised on a steady diet of Hollywood blockbusters, late-night Cinemax programming, and USA’s “Up All Night,” which may explain why his taste in movies is more than a little questionable. When he isn’t providing news and reviews for Beyond Hollywood, he can be found lounging lazily on his couch, perched in front of his television, or dwelling in places where direct sunlight can be easily avoided. He's happily married, in his 30's, and totally badass. If you'd like to reach Todd, you can follow him on Twitter or send him email/scoops to todd (at)

    will there be x-rated version too? And that intro by samuel jackson wasn’t very believable.

      I’m all for an NC-17 rating for violence but pretty sure they’ll save that for the home video release. As for the sex, hope the movie incorporates the abuse as part of the manipulation but stays away from showing it. Those scenes in the uncensored anime were completely unnecessary
