It seems like just yesterday I was wearing oversized basketball vests, talking in a faux American accent and checking out the RZA’s Gravel Pit (that last of the sentence sounded a lot better in my head). Now we’re just under a month away from the rap maestro debuting his own hip-hop infused brand of kung fu mayhem in the form of The Man With the Iron Fists.
We’ve already seen some eye-popping pics and a trailer that looked like an LSD induced fever dream. But awesome and with fewer dragons. And now you get 16, yes count ’em, 16 new posters for the film, so everybody can pick their favourite.
Along with those rather amazing posters, the first few songs from the bangin’ soundtrack have also been released and you can check them out below:
Ghostface Killah / M.O.P / Pharoahe Monch – “Black Out”
RZA / Flatbush Zombies “- Just Blowin’ In The Wind”
The Revelations feat. Tre Williams – “I Forgot To Be Your Lover”
Pusha T / Raekwon – “Tick Tock”
Mabel John – “Your Good Thing Is About To End”
Here’s the synopsis for the film:
Quentin Tarantino presents “The Man With the Iron Fists,” an action-adventure inspired by kung-fu classics as interpreted by his longtime collaborators RZA and Eli Roth. Making his debut as a big-screen director and leading man, RZA-alongside a stellar international cast led by Russell Crowe and Lucy Liu-tells the epic story of warriors, assassins and a lone outsider hero in nineteenth-century China who must unite to destroy the clan traitor who would destroy them all.
Since his arrival in China’s Jungle Village, the town’s blacksmith (RZA) has been forced by radical tribal factions to create elaborate tools of destruction. When the clans’ brewing war boils over, the stranger channels an ancient energy to transform himself into a human weapon. As he fights alongside iconic heroes and against soulless villains, one man must harness this power to become savior of his adopted people.
Blending astonishing martial-arts sequences from some of the masters of this world with the signature vision he brings as the leader of the Wu-Tang Clan and as one of hip-hop’s most dominant figures of the past two decades, RZA embarks upon his most ambitious, stylized and thrilling project to date.
