Set for a limited release in theaters this Friday is Funimation‘s live action manga adaptation Kingdom, offering a fictionalized account of ancient China during the Warring States Period (475-221 BC). Check out the trailer in the player below!

Orphaned by war, a young boy and his friend dream of changing their fate and becoming the world’s greatest generals. And after his friend sacrifices himself to protect the future emperor, the young boy’s path to greatness is set in motion.
