A second trailer has been released for the CG animated feature film adaptation of the fantasy video game Heavenly Sword. The film has a talented voice cast that includes Anna Torv as Nariko, Alfred Molina as King Bohan, and Thomas Jane as Loki.
I'm not really familiar with the video game, but I've got to say that I'm not really that impressed with what I'm seeing. Maybe fans of the game will be more excited about this, but I don't think the animation is really that good. It looks worse than some of the cinematic cut sequences we see in video games these days. Maybe the story will be good though; we'll see.
Heavenly Sword is a dramatic tale of revenge that sees Nariko (Anna Torv), a fiery red-haired heroine, embark on a quest for vengeance against the invading King Bohan (Alfred Molina) and his army. Once considered the failure of a legendary prophesy, Nariko must wield a sword that was ultimately meant for another. This ancient Heavenly Sword, once belonging to a powerful deity, can never be wielded by a mortal without it slowly but inevitably killing them. For Nariko it is a race against time to avenge her clan before her life is irreparably overtaken by the omnipotent Heavenly Sword.
The movie is set to be released in the Spring of this year. Thanks to IGN.
