Fist Fly in ‘Bunraku’ Official Trailer
If you're looking for a good dose of action before the summer is over, look no further than the upcoming action/martial arts epic Bunraku. Directed by Guy Moshe from his own script, this classic Japanese tale is re-imagined in an entirely fresh visual context, set in a unique world that mixes skewed reality with shadow-play fantasy. The world of Bunraku is fantasy and reality, Samurai and Western all combined.
In a hyper-saturated, hyper-driven dystopia, guns are banned and the sword is king. A young man who has spent his life searching for revenge only to find himself up against a bigger challenge than he originally bargained for.
Bunraku stars Josh Hartnett, Woody Harrelson, Demi Moore, Ron Pearlman and Japanese actor Gackt. It premiered as an official selection in the 2010 Toronto International Film Festival but a theatrical release is slated for September 2011.
