Takashi Miike's Samurai Film Thirteen Assassins Gets a Trailer
"The streets will run red." Oh hell yes - Takashi Miike is back! Another trailer (via Quiet Earth) I just had to feature was this one for Takashi Miike's new samurai film Thirteen Assassins - based on Eiichi Kudo's 1963 film of the same name. This looks totally badass, just wait until you get to the final fight scene montage at the end, there's some cool shit in there. I'll use their intro for the film: "From Asia's most controversial and popular director comes Miike's horror vision of a samurai tale." Unfortunately there aren't any English subtitles, but if you just want to see a badass samurai trailer, fire this up! And let us know what you think?
Watch the Japanese trailer for Takashi Miike's Thirteen Assassins:
Thirteen assassins come together for a suicide mission to kill an evil lord. Based on Eiichi Kudo's 1963 film.
Thirteen Assassins, or Jûsan-nin no shikaku, is both written and directed by legendary Japanese filmmaker Takashi Miike, of films like New Third Gangster, Audition, Dead or Alive, Ichi the Killer, One Missed Call, 3 Extremes, Detective Story and God's Puzzle recently. The screenplay was co-written by Miike and Daisuke Tengan, another filmmaker who also wrote Miike's Audition and other films like Dr. Akagi, Waiting in the Dark and The Most Beautiful Night in the World. As far as we know, this doesn't have a US distributor yet, so we're not sure when it'll be making its way to the US. But we'll certainly keep you updated! Thoughts?
