After the jump, I’ve got the new trailer for Takashi Miike’s (Ichi the Killer, Gozu) Sukiyaki Western Django (opening in August). 

Set during "The Genpei Wars" at the end of the 1100s [strange considering all the guns and the Union Jack attire], the Minamoto and Taira gangs face off in a town named Yuda, while a deadly gunman (Ito Hideaki) comes to the aid of the townsfolk.

Synopses don’t tell the whole story when it comes to Miike movies, because they don’t make any fucking sense – but in a good way, that often involves lactation, giving birth to full grown men, and disembowelment.  Unfortunately, this one also includes Quentin Tarantino trying to act.  Love your movies, Quentin, but please, just stop. 

Also, what’s up with every mysterious stranger being named "Rico"?  I’m pretty sure only club promoters and strip club DJs are named Rico. 

Aaaand, here’s a guy getting chopped in half in Ichi the Killer.
