Trailer for Japanese Remake of ‘UNFORGIVEN’


Ken Wantanabe in UnforgivenStarring Ken Watanabe (The Last Samurai), the Japanese remake of Clint Eastwood‘s Unforgiven is set in the same time period, but converts the classic western into a samurai tale. Two genres which actually have a great deal in common. Directed by Sang-il Lee, the film is called Yurusarezaru Mono, and while there are no subtitles, it’s fairly easy to follow along, especially if you’ve had the privilege of seeing the original film. Clint Eastwood actually directed Ken Watanabe in Letters from Iwo Jima. Yurusarezaru Mono hits theaters internationally September 13, 2013. Check out the trailer below, and a poster comparison of the original and remake after the break.
