“Black Butler” Trailer Serves Up Action!


A new trailer based on the fan favorite manga/anime series Kuroshitsuji has been released and a clearer look at the action and style of the film is given. Showcasing the great wealth of the privileged, grand mansions, opulent gardens, and fine apparel dot the trailer. The look is quite a lot like a comic and there is a stylistic choice to the framing and lighting. Very nice. Secondly the action looks surprisingly good as well. Having been unfamiliar with the source material, I did not realizeĀ  that the story lent itself to knife fighting, extreme gunplay, and some decent fight choreography. Certainly, this preview has peaked my interest more so than any other promo thus far. Look for Black Butler to hit Japanese cinemas mid-January.
