Man With the Iron Fists Trailer

"We'll see who's left standing… and who's on their knees." Universal has unveiled the first bloody, badass, kick ass red band trailer for RZA's new kung fu spaghetti western The Man with the Iron Fists, which he stars in and directs, learning from Tarantino over the years. This looks incredibly big and badass, I'm impressed, I've got really high hopes for it now. The cast includes Russell Crowe, Cung Le, Lucy Liu, Jamie Chung, Rick Yune, David Bautista, with appearances from Grace Huang, Pam Grier, Gordon Liu and many more. This looks awesome, you've got to see what RZA has cooked up here. Let the battle begin!

Watch the first red band (NSFW) trailer for RZA's The Man with the Iron Fists, from IGN:

RZA's Man With the Iron Fists is to be a "bloody R rated martial arts extravaganza" that he developed after studying Quentin Tarantino for a few years. The film mixes kung fu with a spaghetti western mindset and a hip hop influence. The screenplay was written by Eli Roth and RZA. "I'm going to tell you that we put a lot of time into the script, a lot of energy into it, a lot of people were supporting me on it, and if the energy comes out right, it should be a classic film to have in your library," RZA stated before. Universal funded and is opening Fists in theaters sometime in 2012, we'll update you with more info. Here's the first official poster:

Thanks to Twitch for that first impressive vintage poster above. Universal has not set an actual 2012 release date for The Man with the Iron Fists yet, so we'll let you know as soon as they do. Excited to watch this?

Aaaaand Chinese people collectively cringe...

Riki on Jun 28, 2012


As a Chinese this film deeply offends me.

Bruce Lee on Jun 29, 2012


how did he get Russell Crowe into this?

truong18 on Jun 28, 2012


him and RZA are friends from American Gangster days

WUTANG!!! This is sick! Great poster, awesome trailer, I can't wait! I hear the test screening they had in LA was pretty awesome too! I hear Russell Crowe steals the movie.

jah p on Jun 28, 2012


Russel Completely surprised me. LOL.

Daniel Vu Tran on Jun 28, 2012


I think this trailer would have been great if not for the fact that he put his own song in it. Also, they put the F-U in Kung Fu was pretty lame as well.

Brian Ricci on Jun 28, 2012


Hell yeah!! Looks delightfully violent!

grimjob on Jun 28, 2012


Saw this at a test screening. I was really disappointed by it. RZA was not very good, russel crowe gained at least 30-40 pounds for no other reason than to try to be funny and on top of all that Pam Grier wasn't even in the fucking movie! Idk if she was edited out or what but that was a huge let down. Not to ment RZA is not the best screenwriter so be prepared to be talked down to like a 3rd grader while watching it

Crazy4movies on Jun 28, 2012


well, it WAS a "Test Screening"... perhaps it has improved... just sayin..

LosZombies on Jun 28, 2012


Improved? As in what? Adding Wolverine, Gambit and the rest of the X-Men to go along with Colossus?????

Lowrider83 on Jun 29, 2012


I never said that this movie needed X-Men to be "Improved". I meant "Improved" as in the quality of the overall film. All I'm saying is, you guys should know where this movie is coming from, so that being said, you guys know better than going in and expecting Oscar nominated Shakespearean art.

LosZombies on Jul 5, 2012


two words: Fuck and yes!!!!!!!!

Rob Viens on Jun 28, 2012


what to the see the inspiration for this? Go see Ninja Scrolls ...

Severian on Jun 28, 2012


This looks insane, in a good way.

Nielsen700 on Jun 28, 2012


Nice!! Sick as hell, and Dave Batista? He's like a badass golden Colossus! Totally in!

LosZombies on Jun 28, 2012


Total rubbish

Steven on Jun 29, 2012


Best trailer in ages! I'm psyched for this!! The question is are you? 🙂

Davide Coppola on Jun 29, 2012


What is Russell Crowe doing in this

Andrew on Jun 29, 2012


What a pile of shit.

na on Jun 29, 2012


This looks great! All you haters should stop masturbating with sandpaper.

David Banner on Jun 29, 2012


Awesome Marsha Arts Its violence is shocking , plausible. Stunt Work Worth Watching without Doubt But Difference between Ridly & RZA in casting EVEN is Obvious : Crowe is Gladiator / Not Ip Man Statham was more fit for the role Definitely 47Ronin & Man of TaiChi beat it I am still bloodhound for 18 Dec : THE GRANDMASTERS

Ehsan Davodi on Jun 29, 2012


I might check it out if it doesn't have a complete rap, I probably won't.

kitano0 on Jun 29, 2012


I love how everyone knows this looks stupid yet for some reason they say its awesome...

dgeet on Jun 29, 2012


It seems like a movie where I would just skip to the fight scenes.

mooreworthy on Jun 29, 2012


The Man with the Iron Fists, but yet 95% of the video was centered around Asian women.

Josh Loves Sean on Jun 29, 2012


Well, he's certainly learnt well from (later) Tarantino - he's got that lousy 'style over content' thing down. Maybe the acting is supposed to be bad, to emulate the genre but I'm not convinced. Looks terrible.

Chris on Jul 1, 2012


Tarantino'sKillBill was Colorful & Artful. Very adorable & attractive Either. Uma Thurman was Unforgettable as Bride. Precise choise from Tarantino . Moreover , Story in kill bill was simple & straight but Storytelling was Extraordinary. But anyway I think this worth watching definitely. My argument is with Crowe too. Statham had more charisma as martial arts man.

Ehsan Davodi on Jul 1, 2012


Yay, a Kung fu movie accessible to 13 year olds and wanna be thugs. Cannot believe Crowe and Lucy Liu are in this trash.

James Alexander Peters on Jul 1, 2012


I couldn't help but think about Kill Bill throughout the entire trailer. Gotta give it credit for having a nice cast though.
