New Photos: Takashi Miike's Sukiyaki Western Django

We first ran the trailer for Takashi Miike's action extravaganza Sukiyaki Western Django back in late March. The film is now premiering at the Toronto Film Festival in the Midnight Madness section (where the likes of Borat have premiered previously). A new batch of photos have appeared courtesy of CinEmpire.com and damn does this look exciting. It feels like one of those rare foreign films that may hit huge here in America, especially given Quentin Tarantino has a role in it, too!
Sukiyaki Western Django is set during "The Genpei Wars" at the end of the 1100s, where the Minamoto and Taira gangs battle in a town named Yuda. The film is co-written and directed by cult favorite Takashi Miike, known for his often disgustingly-gory films like Audition and Gozu. Unfortunately it doesn't have a release date set in America at all, but that may change if there is a great response in Toronto. Stay tuned as I'll be bringing you the first review of this film in the coming weeks!
