Heavenly Sword: The Movie

There’s a brand new trailer for that Heavenly Sword film featuring a badass, sword-wielding Nariko, played by Fringe’s Anna Torv.

The CG animated film not only features Anna Torv voicing that flaming-red-haired Nariko, it also features Alfred Molina as King Bohan (he was voiced and mo-capped by Andy Serkis in the original video game) and Thomas Jane (The Punisher) as Loki.

Heavenly Sword: The Movie is based on the original hit 2007 PlayStation 3 Sony video game of the same name.

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.
Heavenly Sword: The Movie is set to be 
released sometime in June of 2014.
