Over at 24fps is an exclusive look at the UK trailer for the live action adaption of Blood: The Last Vampire. Compare to the Japanese teaser, this is loaded with more scenes of ass kickery as the fearless vampire hunter Sawa, played by Jeon Ji Hyun (english screen name: Gianna Jun), unleash her sword and start taking names against a horde of blood suckers like there is no tomorrow. Bring on the action!
On the surface, Saya is a stunning 16-year old, but that youthful exterior hides the tormented soul of a 400 year-old halfling. Born to a human father and a vampire mother, she has for centuries been a loner obsessed with using her samurai skills to rid the world of vampires, all the while knowing that she herself can survive only on blood like those she hunts.
When she is sent onto an American military base in Tokyo by the clandestine organization she works for, Saya immediately senses that this may be her opportunity to finally destroy Onigen, the evil patriarch of all vampires. Using her superhuman strength and her sword, she begins to rid the base of its evil infestation in a series of spectacular and elaborate showdowns. However, it is not until she forms her first human friendship in centuries with the young daughter of the bases general that Saya learns her greatest power over Onigen may well be her ability for human connection.
For readers in the UK, you'll be glad to know that Blood: The Last Vampire has been confirmed as the opening night film of the SciFi London Film Festival, where it will hit the screen on April 29th. Check out the trailer below the break.
