, Founder and Editor
You ready for another taste of what happens when a key work from one of the most American of all American directors is transposed into another country? Well, here you go with a second teaser for the Lee Sang-il directed Japanese remake of Clint Eastwood's Unforgiven with Ken Watanabe in the lead.

The action is now set in late 1800's Hokkaido with Watanabe playing a long retired samurai drawn back into action by the combination of poverty and a large bounty. Production values on this look fabulous - as you'd expect, Watanabe is a huge star in Japan and very selective about his projects - and you can feast your eyes below.

    Looks fantastic, and I'm hoping it's better than the original. For some reason this feels like a better telling.

  • Joe Foolio

    The story will fit very nicely into a Japanese setting, This should be pretty slick. I am very much looking forward to this.
