New images from the upcoming live action adapation of Blood: The Last Vampire have it the Intardwebz, and they look pretty good.  Not sure how well the movie is going to capture the anime source material, but if it is even close to that feature, then we’re going to see something pretty awesome play out on the big screen.

“Blood:The Last Vampire,” stars Gianna Jun as Saya, as a 400-year-old, half-vampire assassin on a covert mission in Vietnam-era Japan. Tasked with infiltrating a military school to discover the identity of a hidden demon, Saya has to find out which one of her classmates is the deadly creature preying on humans.

The film opens July 10, 2009.

    One of my fav’s and it has the potential to be done well even!! I really hope they do the story justice!! This move needs to a solid R!!

    The Graphic novel, Book’s and original move are not only dark but VERY VERY bloody.

    My anime juices are flowing now!!

    HELL TO THE YES! As John above me has said, this is one of my favorites, and these scenes look pretty good.

    The anime movie is 48 minutes long and ends rather unresolved, so it should be interesting to see this on the big screen in a (presumably?) longer film.

    Quick question: That July 10th release date-which countries(y?) is that for?

    I JUST saw the movie today here in the theater the Philippines, so it was cool to see this post. As a fan of the original OAV, I can honestly say that the movie was GREAT, lots of gory action and killer martial arts sequences. The camera absolutely adores the actress Saya. They naturaly added a few more characters and some subplots, fleshing out Saya’s story.

    It’s not a perfect movie; The CGI was primitive by today’s standards and the monster costumes were a little rubbery-looking. And there’s a scene near the end where the choice of language spoken by the characters involved was a little silly (you’ll know it when you see it) but overall, I was very happy with it, DRAGONBALL this wasn’t. It was very, very faithful to the source material, and considering the budget they probably had to work with, they conducted themselves rather well. Kudos!!
