Hong Kong/Japan/France/Argentina 2009, 91 minutes
In English and some Japanese (with English subtitles)

Blood: The Last Vampire is set to open in theaters in the U.S. on July 10th, 2009. It's an English language live-action version of the original 2000 Japanese anime feature film. Gianna Jun (My Sassy Girl, Il Mare) stars as Saya, a 400-year-old demon-hunting vampire slayer working undercover in Japan for a secret organization, on a mission in the Vietnam War era.

The cast also includes Koyuki (The Last Samurai, Always: Sunset on Third Street), Michael Byrne (Beyond the Sea, Gangs of New York), Colin Salmon (Resident Evil, Punisher: War Zone, Clubbed), and Allison Miller (Kings).

The film features stunts choreographed by Cory Yuen (Transporter 3, Red Cliff), is produced by Bill Kong and Abel Nahmias, with screenplay by Chris Chow.
I'll have more on this one before the release date. In the meanwhile, here are some links well worth checking out:
