IGN has released a Comic-Con poster for the upcoming adaptation of the infamous anime OVA Kite, which you can see below. The film was directed by Ralph Ziman and stars India Eisley, Callan McAuliffe and Samuel L. Jackson. It will premiere on DirecTV on August 28th, followed by a theatrical/VOD release on October 10th.
In a vast, multicultural and decimated urban landscape, post-financial collapse, the beautiful but emotionally detached Sawa (Eisley) lives a secret life as a covert assassin. The daughter of a police detective involved in the investigation of human trafficking, she was orphaned at the tender age of 12 when an unknown assailant targeted both of her parents. Now 18, Sawa is a human time-bomb intent upon eliminating members of the flesh-cartels whom she presumes murdered her family—men who exploit the defenseless children of a collapsed society for the pleasure of high-paying, foreign clients.
