On Movie List: Thirteen Assassins

Takashi Miike sensei is back this year with a samurai movie.

Trailer for Takashi Miike’s “Thirteen Assassins” premieres on TV Asahi

On Sunday at 9:00pm, a 3-minute trailer for Takashi Miike‘s upcoming remake of Thirteen Assassins (Juusan-nin no Shikaku) premiered on TV Asahi’s “Nichiyo Yoga Gekijo” (Sunday Western Theater). The original version was directed by Eiichi Kudo and released by Toei in 1963. The new version will be released by Toho in Japan on September 25th.

Here’s the official synopsis for Thirteen Assassins from HanWay Films, the London-based company handling its international distribution:

13 – An unlucky number for 1. From Asia’s most controversial and popular director comes MIIKE’s horror vision of a samurai tale. In the era of the Shogun, an evil young lord rapes and kills, assured of immunity by law. But he didn’t count on the Thirteen Assassins. A feared secret force, each with their own deadly skill, the Assassins undertake a suicide mission to wipe out the Lord. As he embarks on a perilous journey, the Assassins close off his escape route and ambush him in a village of death. But little do they know, they are outnumbered four to one by the Lord’s crack team of bodyguards. The streets will run red.
