13 Assassins Competition has now closed

Thank you for your interest - please check back in again soon for more great competitions from modmove!

13 Assasins - screening exclusively at Dendy Portside Brisbane, with a limited release in all other capital cities around Australia.


Japan, 1844. Lord Naritsugu Matsudaira, the Shogun’s illegitimate brother, is rising to power - but when his tyranny runs rampant, secret plans are laid to end his reign and his life. Veteran samurai Shinzaemon Shimada (Koji Yakusho from Memoirs Of A Geisha and Babel) is charged with assassinating Naritsugu and puts together a small band, who agree to lay down their lives to ensure their nation’s future. Facing danger and impossible odds, the 13 assassins set a trap for the sadistic Lord in a remote village…but an army of samurai dedicated to protecting Naritsugu now stand in their way.
 
Takashi Miike, the acclaimed director responsible for such uncompromising and unforgettable movies as Audition and Ichi The Killer, indelibly stamps his trademark style on the classic Samurai genre with this unforgettable remake of Eiichi Kudo’s (1963) Jusan-Nin No Shikaku  that is hailed as “One of the greatest films you will see all year (Ain’t It Cool)”.
