For former boybander Takuya Kimura, it is all about unleashing some hellacious fury in the new trailer for Blade of the Immortal.
Based on Hiroaki Samura‘s manga and anime, Kimura plays Manji, a cursed samurai warrior who due to his criminal activities, becomes immortal. To give himself penance, he makes a vow to kill 1000 evil men and until he does so, he will be kept alive by the “sacred bloodworms”. The trailer does show Kimura having to take on 300 at once!
The film co-stars Hana Sugisaka, Sota Fukushi, Hayato Ichihara, Erika Toda, Kazuki Kitamura, and Chiaki Kuriyama. Takashi Miike directed the film, which will be released in Japan on April 29 from Warner Bros.
