Tetsuo: The Bullet Man Trailer


OMG!! OMG!! OMG!! (I know I sound like an excited little school girl) but, OMG!  How this film stayed off my radar for so long, I don't know. I'm a fan of Tsukamoto's "Tetsuo: The Iron Man" and I have'nt seen "Tetsuo II: Body Hammer" yet, but man, seeing that a third film in the series has been made is AWESOME!

Filmmaker Shinya Tsukamoto, who scored international cult successes with his visually startling sci-fi fantasies Tetsuo: The Iron Man and Tetsuo II: Body Hammer, delivers the long-awaited third film in the series with Tetsuo: The Bullet Man.

Born to a Japanese mother and American mother, Anthony (Erik Bossick) is a businessman who lives in Tokyo with his wife Yuriko (Akiko Monou) and son Tom (Tiger Charlie Gerhardt). Anthony often struggles with his temper, and while his late mother taught him it was important not to give himself over to rage, he can't control himself when an auto accident claims his son's life. As furious anger takes over Anthony's mind, his body undergoes a bizarre transformation as his flesh turns to metal and a incredible variety of weapons begin to emerge from his flesh, including a high-powered machine gun.

As Anthony confronts his father (Stephen Sarrazin), he discovers his dad's career as a scientist was not at all what he'd been led to believe -- and neither was his mother's fate. Now visually, this film is waaay different than Tetsuo: The Iron Man.  It has a more mainstream, stylized look to it, compared to the industrial, cyberpunk look of the original... and that's ok with me. Tsukamoto is trying to reach a larger audience and bring more people into the world of Tetsuo.

Here's the Japanese trailer for the film..  

Tetsuo: The Bullet Man is scheduled to be released in Japan in May 2010 and hopfully not to long after, we'll get a U.S. release.
