In case you needed more reason to see Rza's directorial debut, The Man with the Iron Fists, below are seven new glossy images to get pumped for it.
Capturing the effortless cool of old school martial arts movies and combining it with the slickness of new school action flicks (such as, most recently, Immortals), Rza (who also stars in the movie) looks like he did his homework before he just handed anything to an audience that's been inundated with the same formula. He looks like he's adding something new here to the genre, which is respectful.
Here's a reminder of of what the film (which also stars Lucy Liu, Russell Crowe and Pam Grier), is about:
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-hop's most dominant figures of the past two decades, RZA embarks upon his most ambitious, stylized and thrilling project to date.
Joining Crowe, RZA and Liu in the cast are Rick Yune, Jamie Chung, Cung Le, Dave Bautista, Byron Mann, Daniel Wu and Pam Grier.
The Man with the Iron Fists hits theaters November 2nd.
