… Immortal' Gets a NSFW Trailer.

"Hold onto your limbs folks, because the red-band trailer for Takashi Miike‘s Blade of the Immortal is here and it's hacking away at everything in it's path. The manga adaptation marks the 100th film for the celebrated Japanese director responsible for countless genre favorites including Ichi the Killer, Audition, 13 Assassins, and Visitor Q, among many others. With Blade of the Immortal, Miike adapts from the Japanese manga series by Hiroaki Samura, setting the sword-swinging action in feudal Japan, where we find a man cursed with immortality until he can kill enough evil men. When a young girl recruits him as a bodyguard, the duo set out on a bloodbathy journey to set right those who have wronged them.

I've read a few of the manga and watched a few of the anime. I'm not sure I want to see the blood in movie color.

Hey, they've changed Manji's 'manji' to, ah, something else:

Understandable I suppose…

Better than the Dark Horse Manga, which was all photo-reversed, so that Manji had a German Swastika and not the Sanskrit one!
