So, like, this is a thing.

In all the crazy trailer news this week, it’s surprising that this one managed to slip most people’s raider.

Indonesian action star Yayan Ruhian (The Raid) stars in Takashi Miike’s Yakuza Apocalypse: The Great War of the Underworld.

Written by Yoshitaka Yamaguchi, Yakuza Apocalypse stars Ichihara as a yakuza underling who discovers his boss is a bloodsucker, only to get bitten himself before going up against a gang of deadly international assassins. Here is the official synopsis:

“Akira (Hayato Ichihara) admires Genyo Kamiura who is the most powerful yakuza. Genyo Kamiura has been targeted numerous times, but has never died. He is called the invincible person.

Because of Genyo Kamiura, Akira enters the world of the yakuza. His yakuza colleagues treats him like an idiot, Akira can’t even get tattoos because of his sensitive skin. Akira becomes disappointed in the yakuza world, because it’s not like what he say in the movies. Especially, in terms of loyalty and charity depicted of the yakuza.

An assassin is then sent to take out Genyo Kamiura. The killers know that Genyo Kamiura is a vampire.”
