From Funimation films comes an adaptation of a popular manga. I’m not overly familiar with it but this film looks like it could have some excellent fight scenes! The synopsis follows:
Orphaned by war, a young boy and his friend dream of changing their fate and becoming the world’s greatest generals. And after his friend sacrifices himself to protect the future emperor, the young boy’s path to greatness is set in motion. Helping the King reclaim the throne puts the boy’s blade to the ultimate test as they go against deadly assassins, large armies, and the dangerous mountain clan. In a country torn apart by war, only they can fight to unite the warring states! Kingdom is a live-action motion picture based on the bestselling adventure-historical manga series of the same name created by Yasuhisa Hara and presents a fictionalized account of ancient China during the Warring States Period (475-221 BC).
The battle scenes could be great, but it could also be generic. The overall film looks gorgeous, and I’m excited to see how this turns out! So what do ya’ll think? Good? Bad? Anyone read the manga let us know if this looks accurate in the comments below!
Kingdom releases in select theaters on August 16th in The United States and Canada!
