New International Sales Art For BLADE OF THE IMMORTAL Keeps Score


I don't quite know everyone's tastes in music, but recording artist MIYAVI's title track for Miike Takashi's latest, Blade Of The Immortal, feels like music to my ears. It's only on the heels of excellent news of its forthcoming U.S. release from Magnet Releasing as well and I can't wait to share that experience in theaters provided it gets a decent rollout.

In the meantime, the film which opened theatrically in Japan at the tail end of April has an Out-Of-Competition premiere on Thursday at Cannes while sales continue to move forward with HanWay Films representing, and best believe it has some nifty sales art for buyers to take a gander at. Front and center of course are actor Kimura Takuya and actress Sugisaki Hana in roles inspired by Samura Hiroaki's hit manga of the same name.
Manji, a highly skilled samurai, becomes cursed with immortality after a legendary battle. 
Haunted by the brutal murder of his sister, Manji knows that only fighting evil will regain his soul. He promises to help a young girl named Rin avenge her parents, who were killed by a group of master swordsmen led by ruthless warrior Anotsu. 
The mission will change Manji in ways he could never imagine... the 100th film by master director Takashi Miike.
Check out the poster below and stay tuned!
