Yakuza Movies Don't Get More Bonkers Than This

Vampire yakuza, minigun-toting trucks, a guy in a flying fuzzy frog suit... Sounds like Miike Takashi all right.

Miike, of course, is the filmmaker behind such movies as Ichi the Killer and Audition.

Gokudo Daisenso (極道大戦争 ) or roughly translated, "The Great Yakuza War" is an upcoming movie from director Miike Takashi that's about... it's about... Fuck me, it's a Miike Takashi movie. That's as good as a description one can hope for.

Subtitles: Toshi Nakamura

"Yakuza-ism" is apparently a form of contagious infection. OK, I'll bite. Knowing Miike, it will probably be weird and entertaining. Plus it's got Yayan Ruhian from The Raidand The Raid 2 in it looking predictably badass.

Gokudo Daisenso open in theatres in Japan on June 20. Hopefully, it will probably get a release in the West in some form or another.

Because, this.
