Drafthouse Films has released the first trailer for Miami Connection, the obscure 1987 martial arts action epic that makes its return to the big screen. Y.K. Kim co-directs and stars as Mark, the leader of a martial arts rock band who battles with a deadly gang of motorcycle ninjas in control of Florida's narcotics business. The trailer was edited by Hobo with a Shotgun director Jason Eisener, with the film debuting in New York theaters November 2, and in L.A. theaters November 9. Take a look at this once-forgotten action gem.
The year is 1987. Motorcycle ninjas tighten their grip on Florida's narcotics trade, viciously annihilating anyone who dares move in on their turf. Multi-national martial arts rock band Dragon Sound have had enough, and embark on a roundhouse wreck-wave of crime-crushing justice. When not chasing beach bunnies or performing their hit song "Against the Ninja," Mark (taekwondo master/inspirational speaker Y.K. Kim) and the boys are kicking and chopping at the drug world's smelliest underbelly. It'll take every ounce of their blood and courage, but Dragon Sound can't stop until they've completely destroyed the dealers, the drunk bikers, the kill-crazy ninjas, the middle-aged thugs, the "stupid cocaine"...and the entire Miami Connection!!!
