Epic swordfights, explosions and one giant shark - those are just a few of the things you'll see in the action-packed second trailer for the upcoming film "Kamui" ("Kamui gaiden"), which you can catch below or at Nippon Cinema. Carrying Sanpei Shirato's manga series "The Legend of Kamui" into live-action, the film is directed by Yoichi Sai (who directed "Blood and Bones" and appears in Nagisa Oshima's "Gohatto") and stars Kenichi Matsuyama in the title role. The ninja actioner will be released in Japan on Sept. 19th, but North Americans will be able to see it at this year's Toronto International Film Festival, where it is included as part of the Special Presentations program (view details here).
