Check This Out: Sweet Illustrated Poster for Miike's '13 Assassins'!
Hell yea, this looks frickin' sweet! I totally have to feature this awesome new illustrated poster that just hit on Cinematical for Japanese director Takashi Miike's latest crazy martial arts film 13 Assassins, which is getting a limited release this spring. I'm pretty sure we've featured a trailer for this before, but haven't seen an official US trailer for it at all, unless we missed it somewhere. Anyway, Film School Rejects also recently debuted a cool poster for the upcoming US release of Miike's remake of Eiichi Kudo's 1963 film, but I think this poster is actually making me interested in seeing it again. Can't go wrong with Takashi Miike, right?!
Check out the awesome new illustrated poster for Takashi Miike's 13 Assassins as debuted by Cinematical:
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 Audition and other features like Dr. Akagi, Waiting in the Dark and The Most Beautiful Night in the World. This premiered at the Venice and Toronto Film Festivals and is being distributed by Magnet. Miike's 13 Assassins hits theaters April 29th and VOD on March 25th. Sweet!
