A new blood-soaked red-band trailer for RZA's THE MAN WITH THE IRON FISTS has slashed its way online, this time giving you a little more information on who's who in the film and spilling a lot more of the red stuff in the process. Starring RZA, Russell Crowe, Lucy Liu, Jamie Chung, Pam Grier, and Dave Bautista, the martial arts throw down is looking better and better.

Throw down:

I wasn't all that impressed with the first red-band trailer, but this one is much more promising. Nothing sells an offbeat martial arts epic like exaggerated blood spray and this one does that just fine. It's such a curious film, given that it's directed by RZA and starring Crowe, but I'm onboard as long as it delivers on the carnage it teases.

Here's the "epic" synopsis:

Quentin Tarantino presents The Man With the Iron Fists, an action-adventure inspired by kung-fu classics as interpreted by his longtime collaborators RZA and Eli Roth. Making his debut as a big-screen director and leading man, RZAalongside a stellar international cast led by Russell Crowe and Lucy Liutells the epic story of warriors, assassins and a lone outsider hero in nineteenth-century China who must unite to destroy the clan traitor who would destroy them all.

Since his arrival in Chinas Jungle Village, the towns blacksmith (RZA) has been forced by radical tribal factions to create elaboratetoolsof destruction. When the clans brewing war boils over, the stranger channels an ancient energy to transform himself into a human weapon. As he fights alongside iconic heroes and against soulless villains, one man must harness this power to become savior of his adopted people.

Blending astonishing martial-arts sequences from some of the masters of this world with the signature vision he brings as the leader of the Wu-Tang Clan and as one of hip-hops most dominant figures of the past two decades, RZA embarks upon his most ambitious, stylized and thrilling project to date.

THE MAN WITH THE IRON FISTS starts cuttin' shit up on November 2, 2012.

Extra Tidbit: Anyone else just kind of baffled that Russell Crowe is in this? Such an odd choice for him...

Other than a couple of moments with horrendous CGI (which I hope is still being worked on) this looks like it'll undoubtedly deliver in damn near ever department. The soundtrack alone will be worth the admission.

This looks cool & i'mall for any bloody kung fu epic. As for being baffled by Crowe being in this, someone has obviously not seen Virtuosity.
