Takashi Miike is an absolute maniac. He brought you such films as Ichi the Killer, Audition and 13 Assassins. And now... Yakuza Apocalypse. Now, if you are a frequent visitor to this site, doubtless you are already ready to watch this film, based on the title alone. But now...you simply have to watch the trailer. It's a red band trailer, but mostly it's just...what I imagine dropping acid and watching Battles Without Honor or Humanity would be like. Enjoy.
Why doesn't every film have a weird frog mascot delivering beatdowns? Now we have a new yardstick by which to measure mad genius.
You might recognize Yayan Ruhian from The Raid series, among many other familiar faces. Stateside release date is apparently October 9th. And interestingly, the DVD is already available for pre-order on Amazon, out December 1st.
