activeAnime has posted a theatrical trailer for a live-action adaptation of Production IG’s Blood: The Last Vampire movie about a half human-half vampire katana-wielding girl named Saya who hunts down vampires for the US government.  The movie will open in Japan on May 29, in the UK on June 12, and France on June 17.  Universal Pictures has the domestic rights but there is no word on an US release date. 

It looks better then most live-action anime adaptations but I am not thrilled with the wuxia wire-fu stuff.  The movie didn’t have that stuff, though since the producer and several of the writers have worked on films like Kiss of the Dragon, Fearless and the Once Upon a Time in China series I should not be surprised.  The actress playing Saya looks nice though, inbetween the butch movie Saya and the too petite Blood+ anime version.
