TIFF 2010: Josh Hartnett at the "Bunraku" World Premiere

Bunraku is a Samurai/Western pop-up comic book movie about a drifter who walks into town looking to kill Nicola the evil crime boss (Ron Perlman). At his side is a comic bartender played magnificently by Woody Harrelson and a Samurai warrior. The film is action packed and includes several elaborate fight sequences and dance numbers. Japan pop singer/actor Gackt steals the show in his North American screen debut as the Samurai Warrior. Not a small feat considering he's acting opposite Harrelson. Fans of the genre will love it -- others will find the 2 hour running time too long.

Bunraku does not have a release date yet, but will likely pop up in theatres next year.
