Végtelen erőfeszítés, végtelen kitartás, végtelen szerénység. (Rain vezérelve)

Tudtam, hogy ránézésre nem tűnök valami nagy számnak, a megjelenésem sem túl vonzó, de a bensőm elég rendkívüli. Minden színpadra lépés előtt azt mondom magamnak, hogy én vagyok a legjobb, és minden előadás után ugyanúgy azt, hogy nem én vagyok. Ezért minden fellépés előtt 120 százalékosan kell felkészülnöm, hogy az előadáson 100 százalékos teljesítményt tudjak nyújtani. Ennek érdekében minden álló nap folyamatosan képzem magam. Már nagyon hosszú ideje alváshiányban szenvedek, mert ha éppen nem dolgozom, akkor vagy edzek, vagy a koreográfiákat és a dalokat próbálom. Éppen úgy, mint a filmfelvételek idején, ha valamit nem csináltam jól, képtelen vagyok aludni. Akár színészként, akár énekesként, a legjobbat kell tudnom kihozni magamból. De nem kell aggódni, hogy most nincs elegendő időm az alvásra, jut arra majd bőven a halálom után. (Rain)

Ez a fiatalság, ez az egészség... és a túlcsorduló önbizalom... az erőfeszítés, amit az oly hihetetlen előadásai sikeres megvalósításáért tett... és a tehetség, amit felmutat, ezek töltenek el spontán tisztelettel engem. Azt gondolom, hogy a történelem a fontos személyiségek között fogja jegyezni. Úgy, mint aki színészként és zenészként egyaránt sikeres lett. ...
Ami igazán meglepő Ji-hoonban, az az, hogy egyfajta düh, bosszúvágy és szomorúság, az összes efféle sötét, komor negatív motiváció az ő esetében rendkívül optimista és derűs módon ölt testet.
(Park Chan-wook rendező)

비, 1200 日팬 운집, 나리타공항 마비…2009년 첫 공식활동


 

[마이데일리 = 박영웅 기자] 가수 비가 일본 팬미팅을 시작으로 2009년 공식활동을 시작했다.

비의 소속사 제이튠엔터테인먼트는 12일 "비가 지난 11일 '레이니즘(Rainism)'의 아시아판 앨범 발매를 기념하는 일본 팬미팅과 기자회견을 위해 일본 도쿄에 도착했다"고 밝혔다.

늦은 밤 일본 나리타 공항을 통해 입국한 비는 도착 후 여장을 풀고 곧바로 공연 준비에 돌입했다. 비의 입국 소식을 뒤늦게 접한 현지 팬 1천 200여 명이 공항으로 한꺼번에 몰려들면서 공항 업무가 일시 마비되는 진풍경이 벌어지기도 했다.

단시간 내 팬미팅 티켓 매진에 이어 팬미팅 일정 1회 추가, 또다시 추가 공연 분 티켓 매진 등 현지 팬들의 폭발적인 관심을 모은 비의 일본 팬미팅은 12일 도쿄와 14일 오사카에서 각각 2회에 걸쳐 열린다. 비는 12일 도쿄 공연에 앞서 오전 11시부터 도쿄의 한 호텔에서 '레이니즘' 아시아판 앨범 발매에 대한 기자회견을 개최한다.

일본에 아시아 판 앨범이 발매된 지난 7일, 오리콘 차트 5위를 하기도 했던 비는 이번 공연을 통해 '레이니즘'의 일본어 버전을 최초 공개하는 등 다수의 5집 수록곡을 총 90분 간의 공연을 통해 팬들에게 선보일 예정이다.

[filmschoolrejects]Ninja Assassin-The 25 most Anticipated Movies of 2009


*닌자어새신 무술연습영상의 유투브 공개 이후로 외국 영화 사이트에 많은 글들이 쏟아져 나왔는데
 그 중에서 몇 개 추려 봤어요..(filmschoolrejects/themovieblog/screenrant)


The 25 most Anticipated Movies of 2009
Posted by FSR Staff (editors@filmschoolrejects.com) on January 7, 2009Ninja Assassin (TBA 2009)
The movie is called Ninja Assassin, do I even have to say why we’re excited about this film? Hell, the film’s star is so badass his name is just Rain. Like Madonna, but if she were a ninja. And a dude. And Korean. But seriously, this film follows a super bad ass assassin out for revenge against those who trained him, but then made the mistake of killing his best friend. The stunt work and fights are coming to you courtesy of 87 Eleven, the same guys who did 300, The Bourne Films, and The Matrix. Expect this movie to have the most slice-and-dice sword action of the year as well as be a strong contender for a Best Fight nod at the end of the year, even against a lot of stiff competition. Sharpen your blades and hone your shuriken, because this is going to be bloody awesome.

Ninja Assassin Behind scenes Fight Choreography.
Wednesday, January 7th, 2009 at 6:57 am.By Rodney
Korean Popstar Rain caught the eye of the Brothers Wachowski while producing Speed Racer and is staring in their next action flick bringing us more of Korea’s hottest star. Check out this video of some of the fight scenes being practiced for their upcoming Ninja Assassin. ScreenRant calls it: Ninja Assassin is the story of one of the world’s best assassins, Raizo (played by Korean pop star, Rain) 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. You can’t really go wrong with a movie called Ninja Assassin, and this Rain guy looks like he is more than capable in the physical aspect of the movie. The action looks incredible, and this just might be what Rain needs to establish himself in the North American market. Then we can finally see what all the fuss is about.

Fight like a 'Ninja Assassin'
January 6, 2009 | by Rob Keyes
I caught this while reading some news with my morning coffee, and thought it was way cool! It's a quick training video showing some work by stunt team 87eleven (they worked on 300, Watchmen, Matrix, and the Bourne Films). They were training for the upcoming release produced by the Wachowski Brothers and directed by James McTeigue called Ninja Assassin - very cool. This is a must watch if you have any interest at all in action films, martial arts, sword combat or parkour. Film got a hold of a behind-the-scenes video of the fight choreography training for the upcoming Ninja Assassin movie. 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 (hopefully this year). They do amazing work and are becoming more and more involved in some of the biggest action films around. Ninja Assassin is the story of one of the world’s best assassins, Raizo (played by Korean pop star, Rain) 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. Take a look at some of the action sequences you can expect to see in the film:And that’s just the fight training! This movie is going to be bad ass and I’m definitely going to see it just based on this. The action sequences look incredible and they’re obviously putting tons of work into it to make it flow and look real – "real" as in based on earth’s gravity and people actually performing these moves naturally and not like in Romeo Must Die or Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon where a person can jump and kick multiple people while changing and reversing his direction in midair. You know what I Mean! Does this make you want to see the film? Ninja Assassin does not have a confirm!ed release date as of yet but is expected to hit theaters in the second half of 2009. It is directed by James McTeigue (Speed Racer, V for Vendetta).



2009년 가장 기대되는 영화 25편 중의 하나

닌자 어새신이라는 영화다, 왜 기대가 되는 지 굳이 말을 해야 하나?
얼마나 화끈한가 하면, 영화 주연 이름이 그냥 비다. 마치 마돈나처럼..
만약 그녀가 닌자였다면. 그리고 남자였다면. 그리고 한국인이었다면

그런데 정말로, 이 영화는 그를 훈련시켰으나 실수로 가장 친한 친구를 죽게 한 사람들에게
복수를 꿈꾸는 어새신에 대한 내용이다.

스턴트와 싸움 신은 87 Eleven의 작품이다, 300, Bourne 시리즈 그리고 매트릭스로도 유명한.
이 영화에서 많은 칼싸움을 예상하여라, 아마도 올해 Best Fight 상을 받을 가장 유력한 작품이다.
칼을 갈고 수리검을 갈아라, 피 튀게 멋질 것이다. (filmschoolrejects)

닌자 어새신 무대 뒤 싸움 안무

워쇼스키 형제가 스피드레이서를 찍을 당시 한국 팝스타 비가 눈에 띄었고,
덕분에 우리에게 한국의 가장 섹시한 스타를 더 볼 수 있게 되었다.
닌자 어새신에서 볼 수 있을 싸움 장면을 연습하는 동영상을 확인해 보아라.

ScreenRant에 의하면:
닌자 어새신은 자신의 친구를 죽이게 되는 비밀 조직에 의해 길러진
세계 최고의 어새신 Raizo(한국 팝스타 비 역)에 대한 이야기다.
자연스레 Raizo는 친구의 죽음에 대해 복수를 맹세하고, 혈전이 예상된다.

닌자 어새신이라는 영화를 보고 실망할 수가 없고,
이 비라는 친구는 이 영화적 측면에서 보았을 때 충분히 유능해 보인다.
액션은 엄청날 것으로 기대되고, 아마 비가 북미 시장에서 통하기 위해서는
이런 이미지를 쌓아야 할 것이다. 그런 후에 논란을 지켜 보도록 하자.(themovieblog)

닌자 어새신처럼 싸워라

모닝 커피를 마시며 뉴스를 읽다가 본건데 상당히 괜찮은 것 같다!
스턴트 팀 87eleven의 짧은 훈련 비디오다.
(그들은 300, Watchmen, Matrix 그리고 Bourne 시리즈에도 참여했다).

그들은 곧 개봉될 워쇼스키 형제와 James McTeigue의 영화 닌자 어새신에 대비해 훈련을 했다.
만약 액션 영화, 무술, 칼싸움 등에 흥미가 있다면 반드시 봐야 할 영화다.
영상에는 무대 뒤에서 닌자 어새신 영화를 위해 싸움 안무를 짜는 영상이 담겨 있다.

또한 영상에는 액션 영화 300, Bourne 시리즈 그리고 올해 개봉 될 Watchmen을 맡은
스턴트 및 무술 훈련 그룹으로 유명한 87 Eleven의 모습이 담겨 있다.
그들은 그저 놀라울 따름이고, 점점 더 화려한 액션 영화들도 맡고 있다.

닌자 어새신은 자신의 친구를 죽이게 되는 비밀 조직에 의해 길러진
세계 최고의 어새신 Raizo (한국 팝스타 비 역)에 대한 이야기다.
Raizo는 친구의 죽음에 대해 복수를 맹세하고, 혈전을 예상할 수 있다.

이 영화에서 볼 수 있는 액션들을 한번 보라:
이것은 싸움 훈련에 불과하다! 이 영화는 화끈할 것이고
단지 이것만 보고도 나는 영화를 볼 것이다.
액션 장면은 정말 놀랍고 최대한 실제처럼 만들려고 많은 노력을 쏟아 붓고 있을 것이다
– “실제라 하면 지구의 중력이 유효한, , Romeo Must Die나 와호장룡처럼
공중에서 사람들에게 발차기를 날리면서 방향을 틀어 바꾸는 그러한 것이 아니다.

무슨 말인지 이해하겠는가! 이제 영화를 보고 싶어지는가?
아직은 닌자 어새신의 공식 개봉 날짜가 잡혀 있지 않지만
2009년 하반기에 개봉 될 것으로 예상된다.
James McTeigue 감독 작품이다 (스피드 레이서, V for Vendetta)(screenrant)

09.01.10 Fan Acct - Exhibition of Rain pictures taken by Back Sung-Hyun alias Baecka at COEX.
Today I went to COEX, and Rain's pictures at the entrance jumped to my eye.
Sure enough, I found him at the first sign of Malling magazine made by COEX.
It was the fourth issue of the magazine (December26~January14)
His appearance was found even at an information booth inside the building.

英譯中﹕Rain-Asia

我今天去了COEX﹐在門口一眼就看到Rain的照片﹐照片是出現在COEX購物中心的目錄雜誌上。
這是第四期的雜誌(12月26號 - 1月14號)。甚至在COEX的客戶服務台也可以看見Rain的照片。
 





 And Baecka, Rain's old friend, was holding a picture exhibition in commemoration of his publication in Lake Street next to Bandi&Ludis book store, there were a few entertainers pictures.

But above all things, there were 2 pictures entitled "Jung Ji-Hoon" (Rain), Ji-Hoon to play a keyboard and Ji-Hoon to take off his coat.(I couldn't take a photograph of Rain because the people's cosplay was in process there.)

This exhibit will allegedly open till January31.

Rain的老朋友﹐Baecka﹐在Bandi & Ludis 的書店旁舉行了為紀念他在 Lake Street 出版的作品的圖片展﹐還包括了其他幾個藝人的照片。

有兩張名為"Jung Ji-Hoon" (Rain)的照片﹕一張是Rain在彈鋼琴﹐另一張是Rain脫了衣服。(因太多人的關係我拍不到照片。)

據說展覽到1月31號止。


 


這是其中一張展出的照片﹐我從benamoo的照片貼拿來的。(因拍不到現場的)

Rain at mini fan meeting on December 27, 2008*The video was making so much noise that I couldn't hear well, so the only heard part was written down.

The part Rain spoke
:

I'm happy that you've believed my effort and I've won recognition from all of you,
while I'm put to inconvenience of my short activity.
Please give my CD to your boy friend as an anniversary gift.
Singapore concert is not yet definitely settled, but it'll be scheduled before long.
Love Story's music video will be released soon, I've kept it for a later time.
Thank you for your taking care of me during my activity.
I'm not sure of my film releasing, Ninja Assassin, due to the complicated computer graphic working of it.
I'd like to form a music band when I become over 40 years old.
When I get angry, I scream.
My lips are what I like best in my body.
I've ever had an affinity for some fans.
When I see a woman, her body shape is first noticed.
I'll keep my finger crossed for you all even in 2009.Thank you, and I love all of you.

MBC "Section ENT News" announced an unconfirmed report about various ranking of the song and film world to put the year's affairs straight last month 19th that Rain ranked the 5th as the most disappointed singer, the reason why his Rainism song had engendered a lot of controversy with its sensation in spite of his splendid comeback, and had never been ranked as the first, also, even the audience's response to his following song had not been particularly good.
But, his fans made an objection to it. Actually Rain had awarded SBS's "Mutizen Song Prize" as the first in two weeks since his comeback in spite of his short activity period.
For this reason, their protest statements have been appearing in MBC notice board everyday, like that, "Correct the false report", "Apologize to Rain about the unconfirmed report".
No wonder MBC "Section ENT News" rating has continuously decreased in recent weeks. Its yesterday rating was 4~5% percent down the show's average.

09 Jan 10 [Chosun] Past Incident of Rain Whipping His High School Teacher RevealedA past incident was revealed a few days ago when singer Rain (given name Jung Ji-hoon) whipped his teacher with his own teaching cane (or stick) back in high school. Rain's high school acting teacher Mr. Kim (don't know how to translate his full name) participated in the OBS TV program "Unique Performance News" (this is also a rough translation, don't know the actual name of the program). Mr Kim said, "There is a reason why Rain has not forgotten me. At that time there was a small performing group set up with 18 people, but afterwards only 5 were left, and at that time I thought even with this few people I must teach them well, so I used the whip. As long as I was carrying the whip they were able to produce unimaginable results, but I thought I should let them come to realize the truth themselves, so I enable the 5 of them to take turns holding the whip, and each of them hit me 5 times."

Mr. Kim smiled and said, "Besides Rain, the other 4 just put on a show and hit me gently, but Rain used a lot of force hitting me those 5 times, they hurt so much."

 The 25 most Anticipated Movie of 2008







The 25 most Anticipated Movies of 2009
The movie is called Ninja Assassin, do I even have to say why we’re excited about this film? Hell, the film’s star is so badass his name is just Rain. Like Madonna, but if she were a ninja. And a dude. And Korean.
But seriously, this film follows a super bad ass assassin out for revenge against those who trained him, but then made the mistake of killing his best friend. The stunt work and fights are coming to you courtesy of 87 Eleven, the same guys who did 300, The Bourne Films, and The Matrix.
Expect this movie to have the most slice-and-dice sword action of the year as well as be a strong contender for a Best Fight nod at the end of the year, even against a lot of stiff competition. Sharpen your blades and hone your shuriken, because this is going to be bloody awesome.
Ninja Assassin looks like it'll be ninja action by the tones.

Hey folks, Harry here - a Facebook friend named David had the following up on his Facebook page from YouTube and I'll be damned if I've seen it before.

It's basically 5+ minutes of Training and Stunt Choreography for the next Wachowski produced James McTeague flick called NINJA ASSASSIN... Which sounds like a movie I'd want to see. I've yet to figure out why I should hate Rain yet, other than when he beat Colbert in a dance dance revolution challenge...

But I'm still convinced he new the programmer and made the most badass dancer lose by default. Thus dooming Colbert. But in the below footage, I have to say... He looks real john teshing good doing some really insane moves. Same as the other stunt folk.

The other thing that you can take from this footage is that it looks like they were practicing for long, Bruce Lee style tracking shots of massive sword fu chopping and kung fu. Beautiful work in the training phase, unless it gets all chopped to john tesh in editing. Let's hope not. Anyway - check this out. Very cool.... back to my DVD column I go...

Nija Assassin Behind scenes Fight Choreography.

Korean Popstar Rain caught the eye of the Brothers Wachowski while producing Speed Racer and is staring in their next action flick bringing us more of Korea’s hottest star. Check out this video of some of the fight scenes being practiced for their upcoming Ninja Assassin.

ScreenRant calls it: Ninja Assassin is the story of one of the world’s best assassins, Raizo (played by Korean pop star, Rain) 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.

You can’t really go wrong with a movie called Ninja Assassin, and this Rain guy looks like he is more than capable in the physical aspect of the movie. The action looks incredible, and this just might be what Rain needs to establish himself in the North American market. Then we can finally see what all the fuss is about.

Could I interest you in some ninja fighting?

I’ve been suspicious of those Wachowski brothers ever since they dropped the ball with those Matrix sequels. What a load of mini cooper. Oh yeah, "we have a trilogy of scripts". My ass, you do. You two were clearly making it up as you went along. And what’s was that Speed Racer business all about?

True, you’re only producing Ninja Assassin just like you only produced V For Vendetta, but your name on any project still seems to sell scripts. Also, based on this stunt/martial arts training reel for James McTeague’s upcoming Ninja Assassin, I’m willing to cut you a little slack. This is really, really cool.

Be sure to stick around for the whole thing. The money shot features a chain weapon around the neck that is exceptionally sweet. Ninja Assassin stars Korean pop sensation, Rain, who also starred in Chan Wook Park’s last feature, I’m A Cyborg But That’s Okay as a deadly ninja who turns on his clan when his friend is killed by the very same clan.

Paths cross with a Europol agent trying to track down the ninjas and stop them. Sounds like fairly standard ninja revenge fare but it’s nice to see it set in a contemporary setting and not srar Michael Dudikoff. I usually frown on all flash and no substance kinds of movies but if you can maintain a solid action pace throughout and deliver exciting stunts, I’m usually very forgiving. Don’t let me down, Ninja Assassin.

Ninja Assassin Fight Choreography

I caught this while reading some news with my morning coffee, and thought it was way cool! It's a quick training video showing some work by stunt team 87eleven (they worked on 300, Watchmen, Matrix, and the Bourne Films). They were training for the upcoming release produced by the Wachowski Brothers and directed by James McTeigue called Ninja Assassin - very cool.

Ninja Assassin follows Raizo (Rain), one of the deadliest assassins in the world. Taken from the streets as a child, he was transformed into a trained killer by the Ozunu Clan, a secret society whose very existence is considered a myth.

But haunted by the merciless execution of his friend by the Clan, Raizo breaks free from them and vanishes. Now he waits, preparing to exact his revenge.In Berlin, Europol agent Mika Coretti (Naomie Harris) has stumbled upon a money trail linking several political murders to an underground network of untraceable assassins from the Far East. Defying the orders of her superior, Ryan Maslow (Ben Miles), Mika digs into top secret agency files to learn the truth behind the murders.

Her investigation makes her a target, and the Ozunu Clan sends a team of killers, led by the lethal Takeshi (Rick Yune), to silence her forever. Raizo saves Mika from her attackers, but he knows that the Clan will not rest until they are both eliminated. Now, entangled in a deadly game of cat and mouse through the streets of Europe, Raizo and Mika must trust one another if they hope to survive and finally bring down the elusive Ozunu Clan.

Fight like a 'Ninja Assassin'

This is a must watch if you have any interest at all in action films, martial arts, sword combat or parkour. Film got a hold of a behind-the-scenes video of the fight choreography training for the upcoming Ninja Assassin movie.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 (hopefully this year).

They do amazing work and are becoming more and more involved in some of the biggest action films around.Ninja Assassin is the story of one of the world’s best assassins, Raizo (played by Korean pop star, Rain) 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.

Take a look at some of the action sequences you can expect to see in the film:And that’s just the fight training! This movie is going to be bad ass and I’m definitely going to see it just based on this.The action sequences look incredible and they’re obviously putting tons of work into it to make it flow and look real – "real" as in based on earth’s gravity and people actually performing these moves naturally and not like in Romeo Must Die or Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon where a person can jump and kick multiple people while changing and reversing his direction in midair.

You know what I Mean!Does this make you want to see the film?Ninja Assassin does not have a confirmed release date as of yet but is expected to hit theaters in the second half of 2009. It is directed by James McTeigue (Speed Racer, V for Vendetta).

As we enter into a new year 2009, we see the Big 3 Entertainment companies SM-JYP-YG take their turns to venture into overseas market.
But who will be the big winner at the end of the day?
In 2009, we will continue to see SM Entertainment sending his singers like BoA, Dong Bang Shin Ki and Super Junior out of Korea to promote in other countries.
But with YG Entertainment and JYP Entertainment announcing their plans for entering into overseas market at the same time, fans are interested in how all these adventures out of Korea will turn out.
SM Entertainment
For one, it is pretty obvious that Lee Soo Man is aiming at all singers’ dream stage - America, and also the world’s 2nd largets music market Japan.

More anticipation into the more breakthroughs they will achieve in the new year.
YG Entertainment And for YG Entertainment, singer Se7en will be also be working on his American debut album the first half of the year with the producer of singers like TLC and Beyonce. Anticipation to how Se7en, who was introduced by the American media as ‘Korea’s Justin Timberlake’ will do in the American market after more than 2 years of preparation for it.
Big Bang is also another group who will be working towards the title of the ‘Asian Star’. They will be releasing and promoting a full Japanese album coming summer after their previous promotion in Japan for single ‘With U’ released last November.

Ninja Assassin's Rain training

Who could imagine a western actor, never mind pop star, learning martial arts and most of their own stunts for a martial arts film? Well I can't, but Rain is doing just that for the upcoming film Ninja Assassin, and the stunt reel showing online tells us just how hard he's training.
Not only that but it shows how great the stunts are going to be and how practical they are.
The showreel of stunt training has the Korean pop star Rain training hard for his role, not only working out but also performing some superb practical stunts with a few by wire as well. These aren't just isolated stunts either, these are the full fight sequences all carefully choreographed, and they look superb.
There's a great blurb for Ninja Assassin from Twitch, who also had the link to the You Tube video of the stunt training.
"Raizo is one of the deadliest assassins in the world. Taken from the streets as a child, he was transformed into a trained killer by the Ozunu Clan, a secret society whose very existence is considered a myth. But haunted by the merciless execution of his friend by the Clan, Raizo breaks free from them...and vanishes. Now he waits, preparing to exact his revenge. In Berlin, Europol agent Mika Coretti has stumbled upon a money trail linking several political murders to an underground network of untraceable assassins from the Far East. Defying the orders of her superior, Ryan Maslow, Mika digs into top secret agency files to learn the truth behind the murders. Her investigation makes her a target, and the Ozunu Clan sends a team of killers, led by the lethal Takeshi, to silence her forever. Raizo saves Mika from her attackers, but he knows that the Clan will not rest until they are both eliminated. Now, entangled in a deadly game of cat and mouse through the streets of Europe, Raizo and Mika must trust one another if they hope to survive...and finally bring down the elusive Ozunu Clan."
I'm really impressed by the work he's doing and what we're going to get to see on Ninja Assassin when it finally gets released. It looks like Rain is going to be propelled forward with this film too, and his existing fans are going to love it.
Take a look at the showreel for some stunning fight work as well as some physical training for Rain and the rest of the stunt team showing just what they're capable of.

Could you see a western pop star or popular actor going to these lengths in film training? The last time we saw this was with the Wachowski Brothers and the team on the Matrix films.

[2009-01-09] Anticipating Ninja Assassin (compilation of blog articles)


ReelzChannel: The 10 Breakout Stars of 2009
The epic demise of Speed Racer couldn't diminish Hollywood's appetite for Japanese imports. Movies based on manga/anime titles slated for release in '09 include Dragonball, Astro Boy, and Ninja Assassin, all of which stand to fare better at the box office than the Wachowskis' much-maligned CGI acid trip.

10)Ninja Assassin however looks positively delicious for those that enjoy a healthy diet of bloody Hong Kong cinema. A modern day Ninja, Raizo, hunts down and battles his own ruthless Ninjitsu clan, to save a girl, (Naomi Harris) in the streets and tenements of present day Europe.
Count me in.

If this video is any kind of sample as to what we can expect when the movie comes along, then we’re in for some sort of treat here, folks. Especially if this gets a hard R-rating as it looks to be getting.


Rama’s SCREEN: NINJA ASSASSIN Fight Choreography

The footage/trailer I saw at the Comic-Con was hella tight, very violent but stylish. Why they still have yet to release any of that online is beyond me, maybe it’s just a matter of time since the movie itself is expected to hit theaters everywhere sometime this year.
I did laugh at how Rain tried to speak English and chose not to use his translator who was sitting right next to him. But after seeing this video above, I got respect for his discipline.


SlashFilm: Check This Out: Awesome Fight Training Video for Ninja Assassin

Considering I'm one of the few supporters of this movie, I'm excited to feature this today. This video shows Korean actor Rain training with 87 Eleven, the stunt team behind Matrix, 300, Watchmen, and the Bourne movies. I also love watching this because it shows me why I admire actors like Rain so much - they can do something I could never do, no matter how much training I had. Just watch!

Rain is really working hard for his role as Raizo in the Ninja Assassin movie. I don't know if he had any skills in martial arts before the movie, but I am quite impressed by his spectacular performance in this training video!
I bet Ninja Assassin can contend for the best action movie of 2009! Take your ninjato sword, check your shuriken and get ready for the Ninja Assassin!
