Take a gander at an action clip from Guy Moshe’s long-delayed “Bunraku”, his “Sin City”-esque film that’s finally getting a limited theatrical release on September 30, but you’ll be able to get it on Video on Demand September 1st, 2011. If, that is, the clip below sufficiently intrigues you enough to take a look.
A mysterious drifter and an ardent young Japanese warrior Yoshi both arrive in a town that has been terrorized by outrageous and virulent criminals. Each is obsessed with his separate mission, and guided by the wisdom of The Bartender at the Horseless Horseman Saloon, the two eventually join forces to bring down the corrupt and contemptuous reign of Nicola, the awesomely evil “woodcutter” and his lady Alexandra, a femme fatale with a secret past. This classic tale is re-vitalized and re-imagined in an entirely fresh visual context, set in a unique world that mixes skewed reality with shadow-play fantasy, a place where even the landscape can betray you. Heroes triumph here only because the force of their will transforms and transcends both space and time.
Starring Josh Hartnett, Demi Moore, Gackt, Woody Harrelson, Kevin McKidd, Ron Perlman, and Shun Sugata.
