Outrage (UK) in November
Studio Canal have announced the UK DVD and Blu-ray Disc release of Outrage on 14th November 2011. Takeshi Kitano returns to the Yakuza genre with his latest film.
Sekiuchi (Kitamura Soichiro), chairman of the Sannokai, a huge organized crime syndicate controlling the entire Kanto region, issues a stern warning to his right-hand man Ikemoto (Jun Kunimura – Kill Bill: Vol. 1, Ichi the Killer), ordering him to bring the Murase family into line for their drug trafficking business. Ikemoto immediately passes the task on to his subordinate Otomo (director Takeshi Kitano, appearing under his usual screen name, Beat Tikano – Hana-Bi, Zatoichi), concerned that Sekiuchi has lost confidence in him. He instructs Otomo to instil some fear and respect into the head of the Murase family (Renji Ishibashi – Audition, Sukiyaki) and to repair the perceived status quo between the families. What ensues, however, is a series of increasingly violent events, with each party out to trick the other for their own benefit.
Extras are TBC.
