The folks at Samuel Goldwyn Films were kind enough to send us over a copy of the new one-sheet poster and the first trailer for the upcoming sci-fi actioner Blood: The Last Vamire this afternoon. The film follows the story of Saya (Gianna Jun), an assassin in a government operation that hunts and destroys demons in post-WWII Japan. She is sent to a military school where the government believes that there is a demon hiding amongst the students. As she investigates the situation, she comes one step closer to finding the demon who killed her father.
First up in this buffet of assets is the film’s trailer. And to be honest I’ve been sitting on this trailer for a few days, waiting for a free moment to watch it and post about it. Having done that today, I wish that I would have downloaded it a few days ago — because it’s pretty fucking rad. In fact, had I been thinking straight, I would have remembered the awesome photo gallery we posted for this film last month and I would have opened the trailer. But I didn’t, until now. Take a look for yourself:
The poster features a close-up of the film’s star Gianna Jun as she prepares to probably cut you pretty badly with that sword. And as you just saw in the trailer above, she appears to be relatively efficient with it. Have a look and click to enlarge:
Blood: The Last Vampire is scheduled to hit theaters sometime in June 2009.
