The madness of Japanese auteur Sion Sono continues as his action-packed rap musical Tokyo Tribe will unleash in the United States on October 23, 2015 from XLRator Media in theaters, iTunes, and Video on Demand.

In a futuristic Japan, territorial street gangs form opposing factions collectively known as the Tokyo Tribes. When one of the gang leaders breaks the fragile peace, it triggers a brutal street war for supremacy. Based on a popular Manga series and told almost entirely in rap verse, TOKYO TRIBE is an ingenious mash-up of Yakuza gang violence, martial arts action and hip-hop musical.

The film stars Ryohei Suzuki (Gatchaman), Yosuke Kubozuka (Ping Pong), Riki Takeuchi (Battle Royale II), and Young Dais. Check out the trailer below and watch out for the madness of Tokyo Tribe on October 23.
