Gorgeous Full Trailer For The Japanese Remake Of Clint Eastwood's UNFORGIVEN!
A lot of positive buzz was generated when the two short teasers for the Japanese remake of Clint Eastwood's Unforgiven were released. We now have the full trailer to show you, and it looks absolutely gorgeous. 

Lee Sang-il, the acclaimed director of Hula Girls and Villain (Akunin), is at the helm of the remake. The action is now set in late 1800's Hokkaido with the lead actor Ken Watanabe playing a long retired samurai drawn back into action by the combination of poverty and a large bounty, at a time when Japan largely abandons the old ways to adopt a more modern stance.

3 comments in and no haters but plenty of haters with the Oldboy remake? I thought the haters have principles?

Spaghetti Samurai, looks great. Maybe this could be a perfect time-and place-period for Tarantino to try next.

The principle tends to be that it's bad when America remakes things, but Japan is cool and has swords.

I, meanwhile, was on my way in here to call bullshit on another unnecessary remake.

Wow, after westerns inspired by samurai movies, we have samurai movies inspired by westerns ! Looks gorgeous by the way.

Steve AustinJuly 14, 2013 8:50 PM

Wow really? As a rule I usually don't like westerns but I was impressed with Unforgiven. It was an exception to my rule.

Looks amazing, can't wait to watch it

ha ha ha Clint Eastwood had a career thanks to Yojimbo's remake. If this movie is unnecessary so were The Magnificent Seven and A Fistful Of Dollars.

Which one's Morgan Freeman?

LysanderJuly 15, 2013 11:27 PM

The older grey-haired one that kind of looks like a Japanese Morgan Freeman.

Please no. I'm tried of Tarantino "trying" to do Asian film aesthetic and failing so miserably. Let him just make goofy movies with influences if he like but let's not pretend he gets "Asian" films.

Which took a lot from Hammet's short stories. People are unnecessarily strident about remakes or adaptations in my opinion.
