BASED ON THE ORIGINAL MANGA BY HIROAKI SAMURA

Takashi Miike’s 100th film is a massive blockbuster releasing with Warner Bros. in Japan this April.

Based on the famous manga, BLADE OF THE IMMORTAL follows the deeds of Manji, a skilled samurai in the Shogunate era who is cursed with immortality after a legendary battle.

Haunted by the murder of his sister, Manji knows that only by fighting evil will he be able to regain his soul. After Manji crosses paths with a young girl named Rin, he promises to help her avenge her parents, who were killed by a group of master swordsmen led by the ruthless warrior Anotsu.

But this mission changes Manji in ways he could never imagine.
