Upcoming: The Man With The Iron Fists

I’m not a huge fan of Lucy Liu and she’s one of the leading ladies in this upcoming movie, but I am a HUGE fan of both Eli Roth, who wrote and produced this, and Tarantino, who lent his name to the movie –  “presented by”.

Some of the action/fighting scenes in the trailer remind me of Kill Bill, which is cool because I liked both of Tarantino’s KB films.

And honestly? Check out the trailer. Who cares it’s Liu, visually, this movie is orgasm-inducing. *drools and watches trailer again*

 

Scheduled for release on November 2. Uhm, yes, please! o.O

The Last Exorcism tells the story of minister Cotton Marcus (Patrick Fabian), a man who lost his faith in God.
