The newest trailer is online for Yuji Shimomura’s new film, Crazy Samurai Musashi, starring the one and only Tak Sakaguchi and Kento Yamazaki. For both actors, the film will also mark their latest return to Fantasia Festival next month since appearing in last year’s striking premiere of Shinsuke Sato’s riveting hit manga adaptation, Kingdom.
NON-STOP ACTION AWAITS IN CRAZY SAMURAI MUSASHI!
Martial artist Tak Sakaguchi (VERSUS, WHY DON’T YOU PLAY IN HELL, YAKUZA WEAPON) is back in the spotlight with CRAZY SAMURAI MUSASHI – a long-in-the-making, unique take on swordsman Musashi Miyamoto’s most fabled battle, shot here as a single 77-minute action sequence by director Yûji Shimomura (DEATH TRANCE, RE:BORN). It’s Tak, 588 foes, and no room for error! Canadian Premiere.
A Japan release will follow suit with a date set for August 21, 2020. In the meantime, Sakaguchi’s other pairing with Death Trance helmer Shimomura in Re:Born is now available in the United States on Blu-Ray from Shudder.
Also…a tip: Shimomura directed the action on Sato’s U.S. release from Funimation, Kingdom for both actors. Indeed, it’s a damn good time to be a Tak Sakaguchi fan, and I highly recommend buying these titles before this pandemic eats up all our happiness.
