Ironfist Anime

It's more like a motion-comic than your traditional work of animation.

As was announced at the end of September, ahead of the film's theatrical opening, RZA would release a short animated version of the film on Machinima's YouTube channel, which he worked on with Eric Calderon (writer/producer of Afro Samurai).

The short film was to be released this month, and it has. Watch it below.

The Man With The Iron Fists will see a USA theatrical release on November 2.

It stars RZA himself, Russell CrowePam GrierLucy Liu and others; Quentin Tarantino and Eli Roth served as producers on this $20 million project. 

In feudal China, a blacksmith (played by RZA) who makes weapons for a small village is put in the position where he must defend himself and his fellow villagers.

Here's the animated short prequel:
