See a new movie trailer for samurai drama called Hara-Kiri: Death of a Samurai, a remake of Masaki Kobayashi’s 1962 film called “Harakiri”.
The film is directed by Takashi Miike who recently directed the film “13 Assassins”.
A mysterious samurai arrives at the doorstep of his feudal lord, requesting an honorable death by ritual suicide in his courtyard. The lord threatens him with the brutal tale of Motome, a desperate young ronin who made a similar request with ulterior motives, only to meet a grisly end. Undaunted, the samurai begins to tell a story of his own, with an ending no one could see coming. The latest film from visionary auteur Takashi Miike (13 ASSASSINS), HARA-KIRI: DEATH OF A SAMURAI is a thrilling exploration of revenge, honor, and individuality in the face of oppressive power.
Hara-Kiri: Death of a Samurai will be released to theaters on July 20th, 2012.
