Prolific filmmaker Takashi Miike returns with his 100th movie, a live-action adaptation of the acclaimed manga series “Blade of the Immortal”. Today a red-band trailer for the project has been released.
In the film, 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” opens in cinemas on November 3rd.
