New York Premiere
Tak Sakaguchi, Yudai Yamaguchi, Arata Yamanaka, and producer Yoshinori Chiba will attend the screening.
Stuntman-turned-director, Tak Sakaguchi, directs himself as a hard-hitting maverick who returns to Tokyo, only to discover his Yakuza father murdered, his family headquarters turned into a shady loan shop, and a powerful gang leader attempting to overthrow the entire criminal underworld! With rival gangs jacked up on “hyperdrug,” he must becomes a one-man, butt-kicking army – and things only get wilder when he loses an arm and a leg, only to have them replaced with more firepower than the entire Japanese military possesses. Yakuza Weapon is another warped Sushi Typhoon production. The cast also includes Shingo Tsurumi, Mei Kurokawa, Takashi Nishina, Cay Izumi, Arata Yamanaka.
Presented with Japan Cuts: Festival of Contemporary Japanese Cinema.
