Blade of the Immortal is a Japanese manga by Hiroaki Samura. It has always been one of my favorites and it is coming to the big screen as a live action feature from the legendary Takashi Miike (Detective Story, 13 Assassins).
The red band trailer for the film contains all of the elements of an action packed, blood bath of violence and vengeance. It also looks to add some humor to the dense and often morose storyline. Check it out and let me know what you think.
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.
Blade of the Immortal will slash its way into theaters November 3, 2017.
