Check Out Two Cannes Promos For Miike Takashi's BLADE OF THE IMMORTAL
I suppose what bugs me most is that there's yet to be any decent poster art going online except for the same mobile viewing of the official home webpage for Miike Takashi's Blade Of The Immortal. The trailers and TV spots have all proven awesome though as the film looks amply solid as one might hope, and especially thanks in part to J-rocker MIYAVI's added touch.
As such, Cannes attendees can expect to catch the film next month for its forthcoming out-of-competition screening, as posed by Warner Bros. Japan with two short TV promos for the film which opens this Friday. The film is inspired by Samura Hiroaki's famed manga with Kimura Takuya and Sugisaki Hana leading the tale of a martial arts school heiress and her quest for vengeance with the help of an afflicted, immortal samurai with his own intentions.
CJ Entertainment, who was also reportedly involved in the film's early production stages, has also backed the film thus granting it releases in several territories throughout Asia via its subsidiary, CGV Cinemas. Also starring are actresses Toda Erika and Kuriyama Chiaki, and actors Fukushi Sota, Ichihara Hayato, Tanaka Min and Ichikawa Ebizo among the cast.
Check out the promos below and let's hope we're not waiting too long for some acquisition news toward Western audiences. We love these movies too!
