What do you get when you cross Eli Roth, Quentin Tarantino, Wu-Tang Clan's RZA and Oscar-winning actor Russell Crowe? The cuckoo bananas trailer for "The Man With the Iron Fists," which looks like a cross between "Kill Bill: Volume 3" and the next Funny or Die video your cousin posts on Facebook.
RZA -- who worked with Tarantino on the soundtrack for "Kill Bill" and gets the director's seal of approval here -- co-wrote and directed "The Man With the Iron Fists." He also stars. Not that you should be too surprised with his Hollywood shift. RZA has appeared in films directed by Jim Jarmusch, Ridley Scott, Judd Apatow and Paul Haggis, and has a supporting role in "G.I. Joe: Retaliation." In "Fists" he's surrounded by a high-powered cast in addition to Crowe: Pam Grier, Jamie Chung and Lucy Liu -- doing her best O-Ren Ishii impersonation -- all co-star.
On Twitter, RZA (real name: Robert Fitzgerald Diggs) was positively giddy in the lead up to the trailer release. "Bong bong," he wrote in one missive.
Watch the red band trailer above. "Man With the Iron Fists," which features new music from RZA, The Black Keys and Kanye West, is in theaters this fall.
