Longer Teaser For Yoichi Sai's Ninja Epic KAMUI!

Ah, figured this would be coming soon since the official website for Yoishi Sai's ninja film Kamui was just redesigned and, sure enough, here it is: a new teaser for the film starring Detroit MEtal City's Kenichi Matsuyama. Clocking in at just a shade under a minute this new teaser incorporates almost all of the footage that was included in the original teaser, which means it would be easy to simply label this 'more of the same' but when being the same means being all kinds of awesome that's not really a bad thing, now is it? Sai is one of Japan's best and, to my knowledge, this is the first time he's gone all out with a crowd-pleasing action film and I am more than a little intrigued to see the results.

Check both teasers below the break!

I'm totally in love with the Kamui Manga. I'm freakin' exciting about this. Since the director is Yoichi Sai, I think not much can go wrong.

There are good ninja movies and there are bad ninja movies. This looks like it has the potential to be a great one. So far we have NINJA, NINJA ASSASIN, and KAMUI.

And if the Wolverine 2 gets done right then maybe we'll see THE HAND get some serious action there too. What can I say, I love ninjas.

Kickass trailer. Looks good.

The Azumi manga is quite complex from what i heard, is just the movie that it was made as dumb as possible.

The Azumi manga's tone is a bit more complex; it consistently strikes a breezy, Dragonballish kids adventure tone that stands in jarring contrast to the constant brutality. The movies pretty much missed that tone entirely.
But the actual events were pretty much identical in the volumes I read.

I haven't actually read the Kamui Gaiden series, just the original Kamui Den. I understand the original is a bit of a different beast than the later ones, since it is heavily infused by the author's communist beliefs, and spends huge swaths of time depicting the plight of the serfs and the evil of the samurai overlords, or doing extensive sections entirely focused on animal behavior as a metaphor for human society. It is a very odd book.

I can guarantee the Wolverine 2 movie, if it does go to Japan, will not be good. The Ninja movie looks horrible also.
