13 assassins poster

Here's the poster for 13 Assassins, the latest film from cult director Takashi Miike. Set at the end of Japan's feudal era, a group of unemployed samurai are enlisted to bring down a sadistic lord to prevent him from ascending to the throne and plunging the country into a war-torn future.

My only gripe with the poster is that if the movie's called 13 Assassins, it would be kind of awesome if there were actually thirteen assassins depicted on the poster. No?

Miike is known for his delivering serious shock to his movies, but I'm told that this is actually one of his most restrained films. That said, I've also heard that this film delivers some crazy kickass violence, with the last 45 minutes basically dedicated to one insane long samurai battle in which a lot of people die.

Sounds great. 13 Assassins will be available On Demand on March 25 and in limited theatrical release on April 29 from Magnet Releasing. For more information about the movie, go to the 13 Assassins website here.
