“He looks determined… without being ruthless. There’s something heroic about him. He doesn’t look like a killer. He comes across so calm… acts like he has a dream… eyes full of passion.”
Those classic lines are headlining this Thursday as Supreme drops a capsule honoring John Woo’s 1989 cult classic, The Killer.
For those who still haven’t seen it, The Killer has it all: an assassin, a troubled detective, Triads, action, explosions, and shootout scenes that changed the way directors film shootouts.
Supreme even enlisted RZA for today’s IG post about the capsule. As a huge fan of Woo and martial arts films, RZA sampled The Killer on Raekwon’s “Incarcerated Scarfaces”.
Check out that teaser video for a brief interview with Woo where you’ll hear some of his thoughts on the film.
The collection drops at 11 a.m. Eastern, October 25th in NY, Brooklyn, LA, Paris, London and online. The Japan launch is scheduled for October 27th. Included in the drop are photo tees, hoodies, an M-65 jacket and a deck – take a look below.
