Magnolia Pictures has released a new red band trailer for its upcoming release of Blade of the Immortal, the 100th film by Takashi Miike. And boy does it look like fun.
Based on the Japanese manga series by Hiroaki Samura, Takuya Kimura stars as Manji, a samurai cursed with immortality. He eventually 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.
Which sounds fairly pedestrian, but the Miike flair for humor, gross-out sword fights and irreverence makes it worth checking out.
Blade of the Immortal hits theaters on November 3rd.
