Ready to see actor and acclaimed auteur "Beat" Kitano Takeshi dump the live-action anime hairdo? If so, you may be pleased to learn that his award-winning two-part Outrage series of gangster thrillers now has a third in tow with Outrage: Final Chapter.
Kitano, no less, sits at the helm as well as reprises in the role of Otomo, a once disavowed Yakuza subordinate who wages vengeance against those who had him imprisoned between the events of the first two films. This one sees our saga extending from Japan to Korea with a cast both new and returning, although what remains to be known in detail is what lies ahead for ensuing finale.
That said, with so many dead Yakuza, courrpt officials and manipulative police in its wake, the first official teaser arrived on Monday and it's safe to say that the likelihood of this one being any less violent than its predecessors is just about nil. Outrage: Final Chapter opens on October 7 this year from Warner Bros. Japan and on that note, peep the footage below along with the first two bits of promo art!

I think it's safe to say you know your movie sucks when you not only screw the rights holders whose name and content you base your unsanctioned film on, but when said rights holders join the chorus of critics panning your movie from literally every angle of the internet. That is the level of achievement you have reached if your name is George Nolfi and you've directed a film called Birth Of The Dragon, long hyped to be a hopefully legendary homage to Bruce Lee, the late founder of Jeet Kune Do and patriarch of American martial arts movie fandom.

John Stockwell's Kickboxer: Vengeance is now available wherever movies are sold in the U.S. and Canada with other screenings pending.
