Watch: Red Band Trailer for Takeshi Kitano's Violent 'Beyond Outrage'
A couple years ago, we had our eyes on the Cannes Film Festival selected action thriller Outrage from director Takeshi "Beat" Kitano, and now the director is back with a sequel called Beyond Outrage that ups the ante. This one premiered at the Venice Film Festival last year, and now a red band trailer has arrived to show off the film following a manipulative police crackdown on organized crime which has ignited a power struggle in the Yakuza underworld. Kitano also stars in the film as an intimidating crime boss fresh out of prison. This looks violent as hell and bad ass, so you should watch Outrage on Netflix Instant now.
Here's the red band trailer for Takeshi Kitano's Beyond Outrage, originally from Yahoo:
Beyond Outrage is the sequel to the 2010 film outrage, written and directed by Takeshi "Beat" Kitano, who directed his first feature in 1989, called Violent Cop, and has gone on to direct numerous other films including Boiling Point and Achilles and the Tortoise. Detective Kataoka (Fumiyo Kohinata) wants to start a war between the Sanno crime family, dominated by young executives, and the neighboring Hanabishi family, in the hopes that they destroy each other. His trump card is Otomo (Kitano) – the rumored-dead boss of a defunct family destroyed by the Sanno, who has just been released from prison. Otomo wants to retire from a life of crime, but finds himself drawn into the fray as the Sanno and Hanabishi clans teeter on the brink of an all-out war. The film hits VOD November 28th and limited theaters January 4th, 2014.
