Takashi Miike’s acclaimed jidai-geki film 13 Assassins is getting a limited release in the U.S., courtesy of Magnet Releasing, a subsidiary of Magnolia Pictures. This is actually not the first period action movie from Miike, as Sukiyaki Western Django, a re-do on the original spaghetti Western classic Django, was recently released in a truncated version with the deleted scenes on DVD/BD. Thanks to @aicnanime for the tip.
Update 3: An interview with Miike regarding 13 Assassins can be read here.
Update 4: Magnolia’s Blu-ray, now available for pre-order.
