takashi miike's 13 assassins in theaters friday


Just a quick reminder for films fans who love their samurai action big, bad and epic... Takashi Miike's 13 Assassins opens in limited theatrical release this Friday in New York, Los Angeles and Austin, with more cities to follow in coming weeks. (It's also available On Demand right now.)

Here's also a recent Los Angeles Times piece on Miike's foray into the samurai movie tradition: Takashi Miike picks up a genre's sword for '13 Assassins.'

Think of it as a super-sized slash-tastic samurai flick that just won't quit. For more information about the movie, including the trailer, photos and the theatrical release schedule, go to Magnet Releasing's 13 Assassins website here.
