She who wields the sword

The previously announced film adaptation of the hack-and-slash PlayStation 3 game Heavenly Sword now has a new trailer. The last promotional video highlighted the narrative of the movie, while this one cuts that in favour of a focus on heroine Nariko.

There is lots of action in this clip, with the narrator exclaiming: "You'll want to be on her good side." Some of the new footage includes the protagonist fighting alongside her trusted partner Kai. The whole trailer also has an action vibe to it, pushing the idea that the star is a "badass". The straight-to-video Blockade Entertainment production is coming soon, with a June 2014 release window.
