Legendary Japanese filmmaker Takashi Miike has graced the world with his one hundredth film and the red-band trailer for Blade of the Immortal does not disappoint.
The description of the film is as follows: Samurai Manji has taken a lot of lives, both innocent and guilty, and now lives life in feudal Japan as a criminal. After being cursed with immortality until he kills enough evil men, Manji meets a young girl who enlists him to be her body-guard. Swearing loyalty, protection and vengeance against the group of sword fighters who slaughtered her family, the unlikely duo set on a remarkable quest to make right against those who did them wrong.
Having already played at this year’s Cannes, Blade of the Immortal is set to open in the US on November 3rd, but will first screen at Fantastic Fest in Austin, TX in September.
Enjoy the deliciously bloody trailer below and check back for more news on the film as it breaks.
Stay gory my friends.
