Trailer for Miike’s new vampire-action-yakuza movie, Yakuza Apocalypse: The Great War Of The Underworld has just arrived..well last week, sorry about that, I’m a little bit late.
As you can probably imagine the film is going to be absolutely fucking bonkers. I laughed at the trailer and made a promise to myself..when I get the chance to watch this film I am going to invite as many people around to my gaf as possible to make a cinematic event of some kind…it looks insane!
Another added bonus is that it stars Yayan Ruhian from The Raid franchise. I love him as an actor and I am delighted that The Raid has opened up so many doors for him and he is starting to bag so many great roles. I am pretty sure he is in the new Star Wars as well (as what I don’t know, but I’m 99.9% sure he is going be doing some serious ass-kicking) so things are looking good.
Anyways, here is the official plot from IMDB
In the ruthless underground world of the yakuza, no one is more legendary than boss Kamiura. Rumored to be invincible, the truth is he is a vampire-a bloodsucking yakuza vampire boss! Among Kamiura’s gang is Kageyama, his most loyal underling. However, the others in the gang view Kageyama with disdain and ridicule him for his inability to get tattooed due to sensitive skin. One day, assassins aware of boss Kamiura’s secret arrive from abroad and deliver him an ultimatum: Return to the international syndicate he left years ago, or die. Kamiura refuses and, during a fierce battle with anime-otaku martial-arts expert Kyoken, is torn limb from limb. With his dying breath, Kamiura bites Kageyama, passing on his vampire powers to the unsuspecting yakuza. As he begins to awaken to his newfound abilities, Kageyama’s desire to avenge the murder of boss Kamiura sets him on a course for a violent confrontation with Kaeru-kun, the foreign syndicate’s mysterious and seemingly unstoppable leader!
