Back in early August, Film Combat Syndicate featured the new trailer for director Kishimoto Tsukasa's most current film, Ryukyu Battle Royale. This week, some new screening date specifics appeared online thanks in element to the viral spreading of the film's official poster.

I also did some much more googling and google translating in the method, and discovered just a small bit more on the plot, which is mentioned to involve actor Seung Wei portraying a character who travels all the way to Okinawa and leans how to dance from a master of Ryukyu. The dance also encompasses a formidable style of Karate that prepares him to face tough opppnents, such as professional K-1fighter Shingo Koyasu and actor/martial artist and Kuro-Obi co-star Akito Yagi in a certain Battle that requires location at the film's dojo, the Ryukyu karate college.

Some Japanese web sites containing new stills from the film are currently reporting that the film is earning praise amongst several large names in Asian cinema, such as filmmaker Stephen Chow who stated the film has great possible, and even briefly exclaimed his own hopes to play an critical figure, due to its "fantastic potential...". I am not saying I know exactly what that indicates, but this could imply Chow wants to be the one particular to introduce the film ought to it ever make it to other markets, including North America. Or, it could imply his own interest in remaking it, which is a possibility taking into consideration the era we now live in where fairly much each film ever made is now becoming remade.

Who knows?

Ryukyu Battle Royale will have its 1st screening in Sakurazaka on October 26, 2013 in Naha, Okinawa, followed by its November 2 at the Tokyo's Roppongi National Art Center.
I suppose I will have a lot more precise details as it comes, so as constantly, stay tuned.
