Anime fans are pretty hardcore when it comes to their most beloved properties, and in any subgenre it would be difficult to translate animated material into live-action. However, The Weinstein Company is backing an upcoming live-action feature film version of 's controversial anime Kite, and IGN has unveiled the film's first trailer.

It...looks...interesting. I'm a big fan of , who headlines here, and I quite liked Kite star in Underworld Awakening, but having no knowledge of the anime, I could only scratch my head at the overall tone and look of the movie. Is it just me or does this look like the trailer for a movie that would have been released over a decade ago? Oddly dated.

Anywho, have a look and tell us what you think.
