FINALLY! There’s a headline I’ve been waiting to write forever. The cult classic Ichi the Killer is getting set to hit Blu-ray this March, and we have a quick rundown of what you can expect!
Look for the new digitally restored special edition of the flick debuting on Blu-ray March 20th from Well Go USA Entertainment. Special features include an audio commentary with director Takashi Miike and manga artist/writer Hideo Yamamoto and a still gallery.
Takashi Miike’s ICHI THE KILLER has endured as one of the most influential pieces of genre filmmaking of the last two decades, and now it returns in a stunning all-new digitally restored special edition approved by Miike himself. This visceral, bloody, and often hilarious film follows Kakihara (Tadanobu Asano), a notoriously sadistic yakuza enforcer whose search for his boss’ killer brings him into the orbit of a demented costumed assassin known as Ichi (Nao Ohmori).
