Red Band ‘Blade of the Immortal’ Trailer Shows Samurai Slaughter
Films based on popular Japanese manga may not necessarily seem in our wheel house, but extremely violent films by Takashi Miike most certainly are. The prolific Japanese director is behind the unnerving horror films Audition, One Missed Call, Three…Extremes, and so much more. So. Much. More. In fact, this manga adaptation marks the director’s 100th film. that’s right, one hundred. He’s a work horse, and since the bulk of his work revolves around the violent and gory, well, we’re pumped.
With just under a month to go before Blade of the Immortal makes its North American premiere at Fantastic Fest, the newly dropped trailer has us salivating. Stylish, extremely bloody, with that wry sense of humor that’s trademark for the director, you can bet we’ll report back on this one from Fantastic Fest.
Written and directed by Takashi Miike, the film stars Takuya Kimura, Hana Sugisaki, Sôta Fukushi, Ebizô Ichikawa, Min Tanaka and Tsutomu Yamazaki.
Blade of the Immortal will slash its way into theaters on November 3, 2017.
