Just need Tom Cruise to jump into the trailer wearing a Samurai costume....I was almost expecting that actually.

"It's a hell of a thing remaking a movie."

Apparently I'm alone in thinking this looks very good. I love Eastwood's film (its one of my favorites), so I'm hoping this maybe a modern day Seven Samurai/ Magnificent Seven thing.

Their getting back at us for remaking all of their movies!

Kidding obviously, but I might check this out.

Very underwhelming trailer for what will probably be an absolutely kick-ass movie.

U.S. remakes Japanese films, Japan remakes American Films. Makes sense.

Can't wait to check this one out. Should be good.

I was going to be sarcastic and type: IS JAPAN RUNNING OUT OF IDEAS?
But, I'm betting that this one will be worth it.

Since the reverse is usually the norm, it'll be interesting to see a Japanese remake of an American film, especially one as well-regarded as Unforgiven. If it pans out, this could be Japan's answer to The Magnificent Seven.

This is hardly the first time a western made film has been remade for asian or even Japanese audiences. I like that the trailer doesn't seem to tip it's hat too early. Of course, I couldn't understand most of what was said without subtitles, but it seemed to have a good balance of intrigue and mystery. The Unforgiven isn't an action film, so it makes sense that an appropriate trailer wouldn't shallowly play up only that side of the film for young audiences like they so often do in the US.

can't read Japanese but isn't the first thing the reference the original movie? 1993? 9 awards? seems odd to reference the original movie in a remake. might be good although i did chuckle a little when i saw the actors in cowboy style hats. seems a little out of place, almost like seeing Tom Cruise in Japanese style clothing.....

What a great idea! Unfortunately the trailer gives no indication as to what the movie is about.

well, Japan has been remaking some of our films for quite a while (HK, China, and South Korea has also remake American films for quite a while). At least Hollywood is giving back Asia for all the remakes we did. At least this help me prove that all those hate for Hollywood remaking foreign films are nothing but weeaboo/Asian supremacists promoting their pro-Asian agenda , I've never see these same group of people that bash Hollywood going after Japan or Asian countries for remaking American films. So this proof hypocrisy and bias exist when it comes to remake.
