I am usually not one to endorse a remake, but when I heard Takashi Miike was going to make a new version of Hara Kiri I admit I got excited. I loved the original film, it is one of my favorite classic samurai flicks and feels ripe for a re-telling. Miike recently created the super successful and all around amazing film 13 Assassins. I can't wait to see what he has done with Hara Kiri! Below is the first released still for his film and beneath that a scene from the original. After having recently watched the original film again, I can tell you this new still is right on point with what I was hoping for.
