Trailer for Takashi Miike's Thirteen Assassins

TakashiMiike.jpgTakashi Miike is indeed a controversial director, his films have provoked discussion and sometimes upset critics, but they've definitely not followed the standard fare, and he's always provoked reaction. So I'm keen to see what Thirteen Assassins will deliver.

This trailer for the film is actually rather surprising, because I'm really not thinking Miike when I watch this, there's a lot less violence and weirdness.

If you didn't know some of Takashi Miike's previous films, you'll probably watch this trailer and be thinking this looks like a great epic samurai film, and I'm thinking that too, but I've seen a few of his previous films and I'm wondering what's to come.

There's a blurb to go with the trailer for Thirteen Assassins which Wild Grounds through Quiet Earth have pulled together, and they describe the film as...

"...his own horror vision of a samurai tale"

Here's the blurb:

"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."

Then straight into the trailer.
