I have to admit something: I’ve never watched a full Takashi Miike film. Audition scared the poops out of me in the first 20 minutes and plans to watch Sukiyaki Western Django with one of my friends always fell through. However, 13 Assassins is making me regret my actions thus far (as if I didn’t regret them already).
The newest trailer for the film just released, along with the poster (which you can see in full below the jump). If the trailer and poster didn’t already pique your interest, the full synopsis is after the jump, as well. What do you guys think? The film comes out in theaters April 29th.[EDIT: It turns out our very own British Bombshell Xander Markham had the opportunity to review 13 Assassins at the London Film Festival. Read the review here] [via iTunes Movie Trailers]
Cult director Takeshi Miike (Ichi the Killer, Audition) 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 and plunging the country into a wartorn future.
