Takashi Miike's "13 Assassins" is still a fairly new film, but it already has at least one passionate admirer amongst the Pow-Wow gang. It was recently shown at the Toronto International Film Festival this past September, where Pow-Wow contributor Matthew Hardstaff had the good luck of seeing it. Afterwards, he wrote a gushing review and proclaimed it to be Miike's finest film in years. I for one am eager to agree with him based on what I've seen and heard about the film thus far - an epic, bloody, "Seven Samurai"-esque period piece in Miike's hands would indeed be a sight to see. We previously relayed the news that Magnet Releasing picked up the North American rights to it, but there still hasn't been an announcement regarding a specific release date for it. But to help ease the wait, there is a new poster for the film out that the folks over at Museum of Cinema dug up. Check it out above or at this link, where it is presented in varying sizes.
