"At the dawn of the millennium, the nation collapsed. At fifteen percent unemployment, ten million were out of work. 800,000 students boycotted school. The adults lost confidence and, fearing the youth, eventually passed the Millennium Educational Reform Act, AKA the BR Act...."

Battle Royale is a film I really love.. and I have mixed feeling about it being re-released in 3D.  It's great seeing trailers/news about this film, but I hate the feeling that it's being exploited just for the sake of 3D.  Anyways, the film is excellent and if anyone has not seen it yet.. do so - 2D or 3D.  Just watch it.

And if you head over to the JP site for Battle Royale 3D you can check out the 2D trailer for upcoming 3D release.

Synopsis: The BR Act sends one class, chosen by impartial lottery, to a deserted island, provides them with weapons and tells them to kill all their classmates. The last one alive can go home. To make sure the rules are kept to and that students don't linger in one area too long, each student is wearing a collar, which monitors their pulse, sends information back to the HQ of their position, and if necessary, exploads killing who ever is wearing it. Each hour a new area of the island is deemed a Danger Zone, whoever is in there has their collars expload. If no one dies within a 24 hour period, all collars expload.

This years Battle Royale features the class 3B from Shiroiwa Junior High, with one student who stabbed their teacher a year before. This teacher is now the head of the Battle Royale. The story focusses around how all of the students cope, with Shuya, Noriko and Shogo trying to survive, Kazuo who signed up for fun, Shinji trying to escape and Hiroki looking for his best friend and the girl he loves.
