Takashi Miike's '13 Assassins' is far and away the best samurai film in the better part of a decade. It's a deliberately paced men-on-a-mission flick that slowly builds pressure before exploding in a truly glorious clashing of steel and flesh. Seriously, if you're a fan of samurai films, the last 40 or so minutes are like staring into the face of a katana-wielding God.
Which is why Cinematical is elated to be premiering a new, illustrated poster for '13 Assassins,' which Magnet Releasing will make available on VOD, iTunes, Amazon, VUDU, Xbox Marketplace and the Playstation Network starting March 25 before expanding to theaters on April 29. (If you happen to be at SXSW this year, you can also catch Miike's most restrained film in years this Sunday.)
Check out the new poster in full below. And please remember to mark your calendars for the dates above; this is not a movie to be missed.
