First Official Ninja Assassin Poster

Published 6 years ago by , Updated March 3rd, 2014 at 6:27 am,

The first officially released promotional item for the upcoming action movie Ninja Assassin has finally been made available online. In the poster we see the protagonist, Raizo (played by Korean pop star, Rain) sporting two nifty weapons that we’ll no doubt see plenty of in the film.

Ninja Assassin is the story of one of the world’s best assassins, Raizo,  who was trained to kill by a secret organization that later executes his best friend. Naturally, Raizo must avenge his friend’s death and the blood bath ensues.

Check it out and see what you think:

There has been little released on this movie thus far, so if you want to see what the movie will really be about, check out the Ninja Assassin fight choreography video that was put online back in January. The video features the infamous 87 Eleven stunt performing/coordination and martial arts training group who also worked on hit action movies 300, the Bourne films and this year’s Watchmen.

Ninja Assassin is directed by James McTeigue and currently scheduled to hit theaters November 25, 2009.

I loved what I saw from the choreography video and this poster looks cool. Does this movie interest you?

  1. thats a badass poster

  2. it was badass. Is this movie going to be in english.

  3. cant wait

  4. I have not seen a good ninja movie yet. I suppose one could reason that TDK was a ninja movie where the protagonist decided not to be part of the assassin organization, which would make one good ninja movie out of the many I have seen. The video I saw of them training was cool, so hopefully this will break the streak of sorry ninja films.

  5. what about teenage mutant ninja turtles(the first one)

  6. @hud
    Well, I was really referring to human ninjas, not mutants. :-)

  7. John, the reason you never seen a good ninja movie is because the term ninja is clouded in gimmick. People think they can attach the word ninja or the supposed look of a ninja and it will automatically be “cool.” When movie makers rely on gimmicks such as these, it often means they are not doing much with the story. And not to knock this movie since I don’t know anything about it, but another one of these terms that is often used as a gimmick is assassin. This title has both… but maybe they are not relying on the gimmick this time, who knows… Keep your fingers crossed.

  8. Meh looks ok.

  9. Is “rain” really gonna play the Ninja? Can he act? why don’t they pick someone else :(

  10. I’ve had the opportunity to sit in on 2 separate screenings of “Ninja Assassins” early this year. Both times I signed a confidentiality agreement not talk about the actual film. But from what I saw – I have to say its the best mainstream Ninja flick i’ve seen since the 80s. Hats off to James McTeigue – very well done !

    If you want to see a good ninja vs samurai movie, check out “The Hunted” with Christopher Lambert.

  12. I just need to know how I can get my hands on this poster.
