Miike Takashi's BLADE OF THE IMMORTAL Gets A Stylish New U.S. Poster

Miike Takashi fans have two terrific fans to enjoy going to the movies this November. One of them now comes branded with a fantastic new poster from ComingSoon for the hit manga adaptation, Blade Of The Immortal which hits screens on November 3 from Magnet Releasing.
Samurai Manji has taken a lot of lives, both innocent and guilty, and now lives life in feudal Japan as a criminal. After being cursed with immortality until he kills enough evil men, Manji meets a young girl who enlists him to be her body-guard. Swearing loyalty, protection and vengeance against the group of sword fighters who slaughtered her family, the unlikely duo set on a remarkable quest to make right against those who did them wrong.
I've written plenty on this adaptation and having gotten the gist of reactions since the film's release in Japan and subsequent festival rounds, I'm eager to see it myself. I probably won't review it though since there are probably plenty of pieces online to go by, but I await my own judgement nonetheless on Miike's heralded 100th film.

Kimura Takuya and Sugisaki Hana star with Fukushi Sota, Ichihara Hayato, Toda Erika, Kitamura Kazuki, Kuriyama Chiaki, Mitsushima Shinnosuke, Kaneko Ken and Yamamoto Yoko star with Ichikawa Ebizo, Tanaka Min, and Yamazaki Tsutomu. Peep the poster below!
