Illustrated Movie Poster for Takashi Miike’s 13 Assassins

Take a gander at the illustrated poster for wonky Japanese director Takashi Miike’s latest, the Samurai-laden actioner “13 Assassins”. The poster is the work of Yuko Shimizu, and comes to you courtesy of Cinematical.

Cult director Takeshi Miike 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 war-torn future.

The film will be available on VOD and for download March 25, 2011 before opening theatrically in limited release April 29, 2011. Check your local listings.
