Ninja Assassin poster and trailer

It’s been a while since we’ve had info on Ninja Assassin, and now we get a look at the newly released teaser poster (above) and trailer video (below). This is the second promo poster; the first is below the cut, although you’ve probably already seen it floating around.

I don’t think the artwork looks like Rain at all, but I suppose he does look badass. A bit feral and way photoshopped, but that’s probably the point.

Ninja Assassin is directed by James McTeigue (V for Vendetta) and co-stars Naomie Harris, Rick Yune, Ben Miles, and Sho Kosugi. The film is set for a North American premiere on November 24.

Ekhh..never been a fan of Rain , don't like his look or his acting. He's definitely an overrated actor who just have a lot of money and connection to get this part in Ninja Assassin. I see Rain as a snobbish, immature young man. sorry..just not a fan and won't be watching this movie.

I totally thought this would be lame, but this movie actually looks pretty awesome. I'm a big action movie junkie, and I loved V for Vendetta.

I just saw the trailer and wow...looks really promising. I am not a fan of Rain at all but it's amazing that Hollywood can make a mediocre actor like Rain appear incredibly professional. Thanks to a big budget production and amazing visual effects. Not my type of movie but it's cool to see a Korean actor be in a huge blockbuster movie. With Hollywood, a piece of crap can look like a piece of yummy chocolate hehehe.

Well, I'm sure before he becomes "overrated" he has worked really hard. You should read about his career before you judge him. I'm sure he got the role because he is well known in Asia but before he got famous he worked really hard. I respect your opinion but I feel a tad bit sad for him when what you said seem to disregard his hard work.

:)

Looking at the trailer. I think this should be interesting. I'll probably go see it but I'm not really fond of spending a few hours sitting in the theater...

I'm not gonna lie. Rain looks bad ass in that movie. It might be a little stylized and is probably light on plot but will I see it? Yes. I can't help it. I won't pass up a chance to see Rain on the big screen in America. (I sat through the seizure known as 'Speed Racer' to watch him. This looks better.) Thanks for posting javabeans!

WOOOOOOT!

Now that's what I am talking about. Yes, it is still the stereotypical role Asian men find themselves ad nauseum in Hollywood, but it does look like a terrific action movie, and Rain looks mmm-mmmm-fine! Gorgeous man, nice enough looking movie. I watch movies in the theaters once a year, and this one might be it for 2009!

Also, Rain has got to be one of the more hard working entertainers out there. The man is a workaholic and he deserves all the good that comes his way.

The plot seems contrived but Rain does look badass in the trailer. I don't mind Asians portraying a typical kung fu or ninja expert if it's good. I'll definitely see it just out of curiosity. I hope it won't be too cheesy.

Saw this earlier today.. His English caught me off guard. Not sure if that's a good thing yet. Hahaha. But I can't help thinkingk of him as Young Jae from Full House.. This image of him is frightening and definitely hardcore badass. I'll go watch anyhow, maybe for my birthday.. Comes out a day later (:

Did we all watch the same trailer?? As a hardcore action/kung-fu movie enthusiast, I found that "Ninja Assassin" is an incredibly cheesy B-movie that's trying too hard. Rain's English is still not up to par, either, and the poster doesn't look like its true to the film. I mean really. It looks like it's got some Tarantino-type flair to it, but the movie itself isn't anywhere near what is portrayed there. Sorry, I'm with "Yikes" on this one. I'd much rather spend the money and time on "New Moon" which will hit the theaters around the same time.

Rain's less than perfect English doesn't bother me in the slightest. He's Korean, of course he's going to have an accent. I imagine I would sound quite hilarious speaking Korean in an American (and Southern, at that) accent, LOL!

I'm admittedly biased though; I think Rain is all that and then some more, so...this just my two cents. He could recite the NYC phone book in Swahili and I'd pay big bucks to watch it.

:-)

And...I don't think that IS Rain in that first poster! Something doesn't look quite right.

Rain works hard, has all his life, so while he not a great actor by any stretch of the imagination, he certainly can act. Well enough for what looks like a action Movie where the FX is the main star.
Frankly if he wants to be an Actor, just go home and learn more, appearing in Hollywood films like this and speed racer, you not going to learn much acting skills, though i sure it doing his bank balance and profile some good.

i've never been a huge rain fan - i've liked his stuff here and there but never followed his career really. however, this movie looks like fun :) i love action films and i'm curious to hear his english (more than the half a second shown in the trailer hehe). and hell, can't deny it... the boy has a fiiiiiine body :) oh ya and SUNG KANG is in this too.. hopefully more than the 10 minutes he was in fast and furious haha. :)

I think this movie is for entertainment. If it entertains, then it has fulfilled its purpose, no?

And I'm not sure about his fine acting skills but hey, it's not that easy for any actor, world-class or otherwise, to pull off an action movie like this with no prior experience. This director seems to know what he's doing (V for Vendetta), and to actually choose Rain for a role originally meant for Jet Li well...

And being over-hyped is not the product's fault but its company's/marketing. You can't really blame a person for going along with the judgment of their all-powerful management co (esp. in Korea). It's like blaming the actual car insurance plan for its stupid viral ads involving cavemen, geckos, and stacks of money with googly eyes.

Who knows, maybe when you get past all the stupid glittery packaging you'll find something of actual substance. But hey, it could also totally suck.

This movie is all about the action, the graphics, and not so much about the plot, so I hope people stop saying, "the story is so cheesy blah blah or that it's the same story blah blah".

I feel sorry for people who don't get entertained by a movie because they always ask for something.

@ no. 5.
You obviously don't know what he has gone through to get to where he is. Google it and you can find it. That's how everyone (except you, obviously) knows how he got to where he is right now. And as for this movie, he was handpicked by the producers because they saw his hard work in Speed Racer (where he has to audition). So, don't talk about these things that are happening to him like they were just given to him.
And it's funny how you call him snobbish, immature young man when people speak of him as very friendly and respectful to everyone, and very mature for his age.

Sure, he is not the best actor. I wouldn't call him mediocre, though. He is one of those people who always shows improvement. Besides, this type of movie doesn't require great acting skills.

Wow! I have heard a lot of negativity about Rain these past few months. What with all the scandal and legal issues, however, after watching the trailer I'm so psyched!

I hope that this is the reason that he kind of blew off his music career these past few months, coz I think he totally rocked this movie!

FUCK all the haters! He is NOT a mediocre actor. Go watch all of his dramas and movies before you judge Rain. Famed directors around the world have praised him and given him roles in their movies, so who the FUCK do you think you are to say that Rain is an overrated, snobbish and immature person who uses money and connection to get this part in Ninja Assassin? FUCK YOU AND ALL THE STUPID HATERS.

im also super psyched for the movie after seeing the trailer. i also think that the movie is just pure entertainment with lots of violence and blood rather than something that's meant to be deep and meaningful. i think i'll actually watch this. two reasons --> one: i love bi. two: it looks cool and tons better than speed racer. hahahah.

I don't know why but for some reason the feel of that trailer reminded me of Jet Li's The Black Mask. I'll probably go see this. It looks promising.

Well, I'm in. I've decided that this film, like GI Joe, will get no more analysis from me. I am, after all, a sucker for the "they killed your family, so now you have to train from a little boy and do some cool OST / montage training scenes and then in the end, battle hundreds of guys and get revenge" movie. I grew up on that, I dreamed of being that guy, and even though I am not guy, and I cannot help but be sucked into things like this.

Quoting the love-struck Colbert, "Raaaaaainnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn!" Hehe.

First of all, I love Rain
Second, I love Rain
Third, I love Rain
I'm a huge Rain fain! Can you tell:-) I can honestly tell you that I'm not into his music however I do enjoy his dancing. That man can dance I tell ya. I love love him as an actor. Rain is a great actor! I am really anticipating on watching his movie ninja assasin. When it comes to action movies such as ninja assasin and GI Joe, of course it will be more about the action then about the plot. For everyone that expects it to be much more than that, then go watch goodwill hunting!!
Go Rain - I hope he is having a good week!!
To all Rain fans- I hope all of you are having a great week!!

i also am not a fan of Rain... i thought he was pretty awful in A love to kill. i've not heard any of his songs, except of others have covered. but that's the biggest form or flattery, right? to cover another artist's song? so, he must be pretty damn talented in the singing field. i will give him the YUMMY body... and the trailer is badass. however, if i see this movie in the theaters, which i probably won't, it will totally be for Rick Yune!!! LOVED him in Snow falling on Cedars. (which i just re-watched last week!!!)

@36 - Samsooki LOL! Did you see the episode where Rain and Colbert did the dance off... "He is just adorable. Be strong Colbert. Be strong!"

@45 Sari - I thought he did a great job in A Love to Kill and yes, I was absolutely traumatized by the ending. But I thought he was excellent in that.

As long as there is no reference to 'Fresh Ramen' in this movie, I'll be fine. :)

@sari--that's your opinion. i actually liked the ending, but it coulda been done more... beautifully? i guess i'm not sure what word i'm looking for... it just was too abrupt. i mean, the drama shoulda ended at ep 6, but the final scene was just blah! had it been more developed... it woulda been better. i'm a sucker for lovers that die together at the end... but it just didn't seem like the rite time yet. i didn't care for Rain at all in the drama, but he did have some AWESOME crying scenes over his vegetative bro. man, those boogers were disgustingly real! i didn't like the characters, the story line... overall, i HATED the drama... there are very few dramas i HATE, ALTK is one of those few.
