Must Watch: First Insanely Awesome Ninja Assassin Trailer!
Awesome! The first official trailer for James McTeigue's Ninja Assassin has finally debuted today on MTV. You need to drop everything and watch this - it's one of those kind of trailers. Yes it's stylized and probably not for everyone, but if you love ninjas at all, you'll love this. Let me remind you this is from the same guy who brought us the brilliant V for Vendetta. It stars Korean pop star Rain and also co-stars Naomie Harris and Rick Yune. From the looks of this trailer, the story may be the weakest element, but considering we don't often seen awesome ninja action like this, I think I'll forget that and just enjoy it!

Ninja Assassin is directed by Australian filmmaker James McTeigue, who previously worked as the first assistant director for all three Matrix movies and Speed Racer and also directed V for Vendetta himself.

Michael Straczynski, of the "Babylon 5" TV show and the script for Clint Eastwood's Changeling previously as well as the Silver Surfer movie. Warner Brothers is finally bringing Ninja Assassin to theaters on November 25th this year.
