Blade Of The Immortal trailer: Takashi Miike's 100th film is bloody samurai mayhem


Way to celebrate #100

Takashi Miike is one prolific guy. At 56 years old, he's about to screen his 100th movie (!) at the Cannes Film Festival. He's like the Robert Pollard of cinema: wakes up in the morning, makes a movie before he gets the coffee going.

The 100th Miike movie in question is Blade of the Immortal, an adaptation of Hiroaki Samura's manga of the same name. The movie looks like one of the Miike-est Miike movies that ever Miike'd. Check out the trailer below.

If 13 Assassins were a fantasy samurai movie directed by Kinji Fukasaku, it would be Blade of the Immortal. Wonder how many movies Miike will make by career's end.

There is no release date for the film as of now, but the North American release rights have been picked up by Magnet, who's released many of Miike's recent films. Let us know what you think of Miike's Blade of the Immortal adaptation in the comments.
