Time To Revise Your "Most-Anticipated" List

The Samurai/Cowboy remake dance hasn't been done for awhile, mostly because the U.S. stopped making westerns with any real frequency. But now we've got a new entry: "Yurusarezaru mono" is a remake of Clint Eastwood's "Unforgiven," set during the waning days of the Samurai era with Ken Watanabe in the Eastwood role. The trailer (embedded below) doesn't have English subtitles yet; but if you remember "Unforgiven" it's pretty easy to pick out who is supposed to be who and what's going on. Either way, looks GOOD.
