About "THE SUSHI TYPHOON"
Born in 2010, The Sushi Typhoon is the upstart, wild offspring of a respectable parent: Nikkatsu Corporation, the oldest film studio in Japan and once home to legendary 1960′s action stars like Joe Shishido, Akira Kobayashi, Tetsuya Watari, Meiko Kaji and Yujiro Ishihara. With a long history of genre films and violent gangster epics, the company was also the leader of Japan's erotic renaissance of the 1970′s with their Roman Porno line; and now, Nikkatsu's latest offering, The Sushi Typhoon, takes their century-old extremes to the next level.
The brainchild of veteran producer Yoshinori Chiba, responsible for introducing directors Takashi Miike, Noboru Iguchi and Yoshihiro Nishimura to Western audiences, The Sushi Typhoon seeks to satisfy audiences who crave the good taste of bad taste, and for whom too much is never enough. The Sushi Typhoon has brought together the best and brightest of Japan's genre entertainment world, with Miike, Iguchi and Nishimura joined by the festival award-winning Sion Sono, Tak Sakaguchi and Yudai Yamaguchi. A tour-de-force of inventive, boundary-pushing entertainment, the first phase of The Sushi Typhoon's films will be released in late 2010 and early 2011, with the company self-distributing their titles in North America. The first two titles to be released will be ALIEN VS NINJA and MUTANT GIRLS SQUAD, with the assistance of FUNimation Entertainment, the Texas-based company responsible for releasing some of the best anime titles in America.
Connoisseurs of dangerous and wild Japanese cinema need look no further to satisfy their hunger for comedy, action, horror, splatter and raucous cult entertainment: The Sushi Typhoon is headed for America's shores, ready to fill your belly with the raw entertainment you've been craving!
