Late last week, we got our first peek at Barely Lethal, starring Samuel L. Jackson as the mentor to a teen assassin played by Hailee Steinfeld. Today, we have our first peek at Kite, starring Samuel L. Jackson as mentor to a teen assassin played by India Eisley. The difference is that this time around, we’re looking at a gritty, anime-based actioner, rather than a Mean Girls-esque comedy.
Eisley leads as Sawa, a young girl left orphaned after her policeman father is killed. Under the guidance of her dad’s ex-partner Karl Aker (Jackson), she trains as a killer and sets out to avenge her parents. Callan McAuliffe (I Am Number Four) also stars. About nine minutes of footage have just been released, including the first trailer and a few clips, and you can check them out after the jump.
