Ooh. It may only be 41 seconds long but the teaser trailer for Yoichi Sai's adaptation of the manga, The Legend of Kamui by Sanpei Shirato, is very impressive. What is more impressive is that the role of the title character is being played by Kenichi Matsuyama, the same Kenichi Matsuyama who has starred recently in Detroit Metal City and the Death Note films. This will mark his first true action role and though the glimpses of him are brief I almost didn't recognize him at first. Somebody's been working out and given a sword.
You can find the trailer after the break. The Legend of Kamui opens on September 19th in Japan.
