"13, are you ready… to die?!" Get ready for some sweet Japanese action from master filmmaker Takashi Miike in his newest samurai action epic 13 Assassins. I know I use the word epic a lot, but I think this deserves it, especially once the trailer gets going and the 13 assassins start getting crazy. Magnet recently debuted the official US trailer on Apple, and the film is now available VOD. Cult director Takeshi Miike delivers a bravado period action film set at the end of Japan's feudal era in which a group of unemployed samurai are enlisted to bring down a sadistic lord and prevent him from ascending to the throne. Kick ass!
