The official U.S. trailer has been released for Sion Sono’s “Why Don’t You Play In Hell?”. The film stars Jun Kunimura, Fumi Nikaidô, Shin’ichi Tsutsumi, Hiroki Hasegawa, Gen Hoshino, Tomochika, Itsuji Itao, and hits theatres on November 7th. “Why Don’t You Play In Hell?” follows an amateur film production crew and a yakuza boss who try to make a movie during a decade-long battle between two crime lords.
There’s a war going on, but that won’t stop the inexperienced but eager wannabe film crew The F*ck Bombers from following their dreams of making the ultimate action epic. Ten years ago, yakuza mid-boss Ikegami led an assault against rival don Muto. Now, on the eve of his revenge, all Muto wants to do is complete his masterpiece, a feature film with his daughter in the starring role, before his wife is released from prison. And The F*ck Bombers are standing by with the chance of a lifetime: to film a real, live yakuza battle to the death… on 35mm! Endlessly irreverent and wildly, hilariously visceral, Why Don’t You Play In Hell? is a Tarantino-esque ode to the yakuza films of yore, and features an over-the-top, blood-soaked finale for the ages.
