When the RZA announced that he was going to direct his own kung fu movie, we knew that he was the right man for the job. The Wu-Tang Clan and many of his other projects would reference a number of classic samurai and kung fu films, and watching the red-band trailer for his 'The Man With The Iron Fists,' it's clear he knows his genre.
Remember that grisly promotional image from RZA’s ‘The Man With the Iron Fist’ that we shared with you? Of course you do. It actually showed a warrior getting his eyeball punched out. That’s pretty hard to forget. On the heels of that pic, we’re now seeing the film’s official poster, which we’re sharing with you below.
RZA’s a fixture in the hip-hop community, though film nerds know him from his performances in films like 'American Gangster' and 'Repo Men.' He’s making the move to the director’s chair later this year with 'The Man with the Iron Fists,' and the first promotional image from the historical thriller is eye-catching, to say the least.
