New Stills for Sukiyaki Western Django

By | July 24, 2008

Here are some of the stills for the Japanese movie Sukiyaki Western Django starring Quentin Tarantino, Yusuke Iseya and Kaori Momoi. The film will have a limited release in the United States on August 29, 2008. Going by the release date, traditionally the last week of August is known as a dumping ground, we can say there is little faith in this film; however the film could get some buzz among Tarantino fans.

Famed Japanese auteur Takashi Miike, who is best known for cult classics such as Audition, Ichi: the Killer, and Children of Lost Souls, brings a fresh new look at the beloved spaghetti Western genre in Sukiyaki Western Django.

Two clans, Genji, the white clan led by Yoshitsune, and Heike, the red clan led by Kiyomori, battle for a legendary treasure hidden in a poor mountain town. One day a lone gunman, burdened with deep emotional scars but blessed with incredible shooting skills, drifts into town. Expectations reach a boiling point as everyone wonders which gang the gunman will finally decide to join. Dirty tricks, betrayal, desire, and love collide as the situation erupts into a final, explosive showdown.
