Blade Of The Immortal trailer Takashi Miike’s 100th film promises gory samurai madness

The 100th film from the director of Ichi The Killer and Audition looks bloody brilliant

The trailer for the 100th film from the incredibly prolific and frequently brilliant Takashi Miike (Audition, Ichi The Killer, 13 Assassins) has arrived, and we absolutely cannot wait for Blade Of The Immortal.

“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.”

We caught Blade Of The Immortal at Cannes and you can read our review here. It will be released by Arrow Films in the UK and we are very, very excited.
