Teaser: Takashi Miike's Shield of Straw

2:00 PM on 11.16.2012

Well, for those of us who still haven't seen Phoenix Wright there's at least solace in knowing that director Takashi Miike will always have something new to offer. Here's a quick (subtitle-less) teaser for the upcoming Shield of Straw, starring Fujiwara Tatsuya (Battle Royale)  as a confessed child killer on his way to stand trial for his crimes. So where's the crazy Miike twist, I hear you ask? The murdered child's grandfather is a very wealthy and resourceful man who offers a table stacked with money to anyone willing to take out Fujiwara's character before the justice system can have its way with him. Based on the novel by Kuichi Kazuhiro, Shield of Straw is scheduled to release in Japan this coming spring, so it will probably be a while before we get a chance to see it localized. Until then, you can check out the teaser above and the clip below.
