Samuel L. Jackson is taking on another unusual look for his role in Kite, which is right up there with his strange appearances in Oldboy and The Spirit, too other comic book adaptations. We get to see him here in his yellow shades along with co-stars India Eisley and Callan McAuliffe as IGN debuts the official Comic-Con 2014 poster for this action thriller based on the cult classic anime by Yasuomi Umetsu. Samuel L. Jackson leaps into the iconic role of detective Karl Akerm, who wrangles in a couple of homeless teens and trains them to become better assassins.
Based on the cult classic by Yasuomi Umetsu, renowned for its stylistically graphic depictions of violent action and sensuality, Kite centers on a young woman named Sawa who, after the murder of her parents, is taken off the streets by a crooked, Svengali-like detective employing homeless children to do his dirty work. Trained to kill, she exacts street justice against the detective's chosen targets, until she is able to break free of the abusive and manipulative control he has over her.
