Blood: The Last Vampire was a very well-received - and bloody - animated film released way back in 2000. It subsequently received manga and TV anime spinoffs, but the latest incarnation is perhaps the most-anticipated: a live-action film, which will go on theatrical release in the UK on June 16th. If you've seen the anime versions, then you'll know that this should be well worth watching - but just in case you need any persuasion, here's a sneak preview to whet your appetite:

Directed by Chris Nahon (Kiss Of The Dragon) and featuring stunning action sequences choreographed by legendary action director Corey Yuen (Transporter 1 and 2; Jet Li’s The One; X-Men), Blood, The Last Vampire tells the story of a mysterious girl known as Saya (played by Gianna Jun), who is employed by a covert US government agency to eradicate a species of vampire-demons that is about to threaten mankind. Half-demon herself, and armed with just a samurai sword and a whole bunch of attitude, Saya kicks vampire ass like nobody you have ever seen before. "Forget Blade, forget Buffy - this is the hottest and gutsiest vampire slayer ever to grace the screen", it says here. And who am I to argue.
