Wild fantasy Old West martial arts in the trailer for The Warrior's Way

Sep. 30, 2010by: Dave Davis

Years ago there was a bizarro Western project in the works called LAUNDRY WARRIOR, set to co-star Zhang Ziyi.

That has since become THE WARRIOR'S WAY, and now features a grungy Kate Bosworth, a nearly unrecognizable Geoffrey Rush and Danny Huston, and plenty of high-flying martial arts and inconsistent green-screen.

The movie stars popular South Korean actor Jang Dong-Kun (TAE GUK GI: BROTHERHOOD OF WAR, 2009 LOST MEMORIES) as a wandering swordsman defending a lost town of circus performers from a gang of evil bandits.

Seems like a mashup of spaghetti westerns, wuxia and LONE WOLF AND CUB, with a splash of SUKIYAKI WESTERN DJANGO and a heaping of 300 style. Check out the trailer below or in HD at Apple.

Extra Tidbit: Where has Bosworth been hiding since the movie 21?

Looks great!

This movie has been on hold for almost two years now. I've seen some sort of trailer then, it looked better put together than this one.

I'm so over Kate Bosworth but I liked that they used a Family Force 5 song.

The settings especially the western town looks very fake. Also looks like they stoled some concepts from the "Lone Wolf and the Cub" series.

This looks pretty entertaining. But the plot is mehh. Just Once I would like to see an assasin/warrior movie where the main character isn't hunted down by his old friends for betraying them...done to death (batman begins, wanted, ninja assasin, azumi,......etc

Cool. Looks kind of related to Suckerpunch with all that wild kitchensink imagery. Hope there's some coherence to the story but it should be a fun waterpipe film anyway.
