KITES is a unique ‘Bollywood’ film in a number of ways, not the least of which is the fact that a reworked English language version, designed to extend the reach of the original, will be launched in select engagements one week later. Entitled KITES: THE REMIX, it is being presented by Brett Ratner, who oversaw its creation. KITES: THE REMIX will be released in several major Canadian markets on May 28th. Officially billed as "A Brett Ratner Presentation," Ratner’s version of KITES is, as its title suggests, a true "remix," in that it is the same film, played to a different rhythm, running a swift 90 minutes as opposed to the 130-minute original. One of the leading action directors working in the industry today, Ratner is credited with taking Asian action star Jackie Chan and crossing him over into American superstardom with his spectacularly successful "Rush Hour" series. In much the same way, KITES: THE REMIX will target younger, hipper, more action-oriented crowd than the original. Besides playing different theatres and neighbourhoods, it will also take on additional screens at many of the same multiplexes that will be playing the original version as of May, 21, an unprecedented strategy that will present an alternative to fans who want to see more, and less, of the film at the same time.
