Blade of the Immortal RED BAND Trailer

For those of you that might not be familiar with the title of this new movie, it is actually based of an anime series of the same name. Blade of the Immortal is about a violent samurai named Manji who is a skilled swordsman, and has one extra special ability; he can not be killed. Cursed with immortality by the nun Yobikuni as punishment for his ruthless deeds, he has grown weary of his ageless life. The only way to lift the curse is to slay 1,000 evil men. So Manji wanders Japan, shedding the blood of the wicked on his quest to finally die. Now as cool as that is, there is something else that makes this live action adaptation even more awesome. It happens to be director Takashi Miike’s 100th feature film!


Takashi Miike is a popular Japanese film director who is known for his stylistic cinematography and violent gore that he likes to put in his movies. As you can tell from the trailer there is definitely plenty of both in this movie. Some people have criticized the director for putting such disturbing visuals in his movies, but I definitely think it works for Blade of the Immortal, especially if you have seen the anime. Honestly, I think this trailer looks exciting and entertaining, and I can’t wait to watch the actual movie. No, it probably won’t receive any Oscar nominations, but it looks like a bloody good time to me! Takashi Miike’s Blade of the Immortal releases on November 3.
