Recommended Posts

Samurai Marathon 1855 is a "jidaigeki period pic" directed by Bernard Rose (Anna Karenina), from GAGA Pictures and Lionsgate Films.  It gets a Japanese theatrical release on February 22, 2019.  Cast includes Takeru Satoh (Rurouni Kenshin trilogy), Nana Komatsu (JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Diamond is Unbreakable - Chapter 1), Mirai Moriyama (Seven Souls in the Skull Castle), Shota Sometani (Legend of the Demon Cat) and Munetaka Aoki (A Samurai Chronicle).  The story, based on the 2014 novel, Bakumasu Marason Samurai by Akihiro Dobashi, is "set at the tail end of Edo period when a feudal lord decides to prepare his warriors for incoming invaders with a marathon.  Junai [played by Takeru Satoh], a central government spy is sent in to investigate and report his findings.  But when a grave error convinces the government to deploy assassins to wipe out the Lord in wake of what they deem as an act of betrayal, it's up to Jinnai and the marathon's retainers to stop them."  Info from https://filmcombatsyndicate.com/samurai-marathon-1855-satoh-takeru-makes-a-run-for-it-in-the-official-trailer/,
