13 Assassins Movie TrailerWatching Miike samurai action without blood is a bit of a letdown, but rest assured, there will be blood in Takashi Miike's new samurai movie, 13 Assassins. This is the maker if Ichi the Killer and Sukiyaki Western Django after all.

Synopsis: Cult director Takeshi Miike (Ichi the Killer, Audition) delivers a bravado period action film set at the end of Japan's feudal era in which a group of unemployed samurai are enlisted to bring down a sadistic lord and prevent him from ascending to the throne and plunging the country into a wartorn future.

13 Assassins is currently playing On Demand as we speak, and will hit theaters on April 29, later this Spring.
