new trailer: jang dong-gun in the warrior's way

"Ninjas. Damn." Apple recently launched the trailer for The Warrior's Way, directed by Sngmoo Lee and starring South Korean actor Jang Dong-gun. Judging from the trailer, it can best be described as a fantasy martial arts western action flick:

And here's the official synopsis:
The Warrior's Way, a visually-stunning modern martial arts western starring Korean actor Dong-gun Jang who plays an Asian warrior assassin forced to hide in a small town in the American Badlands. Rounding out the ensemble cast are Kate Bosworth (Superman Returns), Oscar(R)-winner Geoffrey Rush (Shine), Danny Huston (The Kingdom), and Tony Cox (The Hustle).The fantasy action film was written and directed by newcomer Sngmoo Lee, and is being produced by Barrie M. Osborne (Lord of the Rings), Jooick Lee (Seven Swords) and Michael Peyser (Hackers).
I posted something about an early leaked version of this trailer almost a year and a half ago. I remember liking it back then, and while there's a lot there that appears fairly cliched and derivative, I think it still looks kind of fun.

And it now has a release date. Very soon, you'll get to see "international superstar" Jang Dong-gun kicking ass and kissing Kate Bosworth. The Warrior's Way opens in theaters from Rogue Pictures on December 3.
