NINJA 2: Scott Adkins Needs A Lot More Than Two Graves To Contain The Second Trailer
Action star Scott Adkins and director Isaac Florentine reunite with the upcoming Ninja 2: Shadow Of A Tear and the results are, typically, fantastic. Florentine and Adkins are jointly responsible for a handful of the finest American martial arts films released in the last decade and when Ninja 2 had its world premiere at this year's Fantastic Fest it very nearly tore the roof off the place. In terms of the current roster of international screen fighters Adkins is very clearly in the top handful while Florentine simply stages and shoots action as well as anyone in the business. Don't believe me? Check out the new trailer for the film below.

Fight everyone and trust no one: it's the code of survival practiced by martial arts master Casey Bowman (Scott Adkins) after his life of domestic bliss is shattered by a savage act of violence. With the help of his friend Nakabara (Kane Kosugi), the fearless American retrains his responses and elevates his battle skills to seek justice for his wife's murder. Casey stealthily tracks the man responsible on his mission of vengeance, but just when he has his prey cornered, an unexpected twist forces him to see even those closest to him as enemies. In the ultimate confrontation, Casey must reflect on his teachings to become an invisible warrior worthy of the title Ninja.
Ninja 2 hits US DVD and VOD platforms on December 31st. Mika Hijii, Kane Kosugi, Tim Man, and Vithaya Pansringarm also star.

You never do. They're ninjas.

Will SchusterNovember 26, 2013 9:22 PM

The first one was pretty great. This looks better!

rage72November 26, 2013 10:08 PM

Looks great!

ricksomchaiNovember 27, 2013 3:44 AM

This looks miles better then the first so does the acting :)

Man Warner Brothers should've cast him as Batman, the response would be better than Ben Affleck..

Todd BrownNovember 27, 2013 9:53 AM

Amongst the 1% of people who actually know who he is, yes.

arturoNovember 27, 2013 2:29 PM

Well they cast Henry Cavill as Superman and at the time not many people know who he is...Warner Brothers in the past have taken risks, and Scott Adkins would've been great, nothing against Ben Affleck, i'm sure he will make a good Batman?? (but not as good as the ninja himself)..

Todd BrownNovember 27, 2013 2:36 PM

Cavill had already been the lead of a VERY successful film (Immortals) before Superman and was the lead on a VERY successful TV series before that. And Superman was coming off a film widely regarded as a misfire with the studio specifically wanting to rebrand with a new face.

I totally agree that Scott could be a good Batman but a) Saying he would have gotten a good response is just not true because people don't widely know who he is, and b) There's a progression that studios generally want to see actors go through before handing them a major franchise and Scott hasn't followed that pattern, and c) There's a big difference between rebooting what is widely considered to be a failed franchise and handing over the keys to a character that has grossed BILLIONS over the last three films he has appeared in, which makes the whole Superman comparison and apples and oranges sort of thing, anyway.

Well before Ben Affleck was cast as Batman, Scott Adkins name was thrown about alot over the net, a few movie websites enthusistically hoped he would be cast as Batman, and the comment response was very positive, so if he had been cast i truly believe that the response would clearly be better than Affleck..
Remember it's the movie buffs that will make all the comments, and the ripple effect would catch on. The iconic character of Batman will always sell, famous actor or not makes no difference. (oh and Immortals in the US only made just over $83 million on a budget of over $75 million, not incluing marketing, sure it made its money back over seas, but would not say it's VERY successful) But hey i'm just saying. I do eagerly wait to see what Affleck does with Batman, and i'm sure it will be a fine movie..

Todd BrownNovember 27, 2013 4:35 PM

I have loooooooong made the point publicly that movie websites are a very false representation of the tastes of the general public. The guys running these things (and it is all guys) are an incredibly tight demographic. We pretty much all know each other, we're all white, all male, all from the same basic economic bracket, all with the same basic interests, all with remarkably similar tastes, and have all spent way too much time going down obscure rabbit holes. Studios don't (and shouldn't) take us as the marker for popular opinion.

JoeInTheBoxNovember 27, 2013 6:00 PM

On this topic I was wondering, because of his history as a stuntman if he wasn't considered for Affleck's double or actually in the suit for fight scenes. He looks similar to Affleck and since Ben's been working out, their physiques are almost the same.

Todd BrownNovember 27, 2013 9:13 PM

That would be a really good call, if they went there.

RoboticPlagueNovember 27, 2013 11:07 PM

Like I have said from day one. Affleck can be Bruce and Batman can be Adkins.

HoboNovember 28, 2013 1:04 PM

Thats one awesome trailer. This should be going to theatres.

El ChilarNovember 28, 2013 4:39 PM
