Cinedigm and Drafthouse Films Blu-ray release for January is Sion Sono’s Why Don’t You Play in Hell?. The film stars Jun Kunimura, Fumi Nikaidô, Shin’ichi Tsutsumi, Hiroki Hasegawa and Gen Hoshino, and it arrives to the high-def format on January 27, 2015.
Official Synopsis: Ten years ago, the Kitagawa yakuza clan attacked the Muto yakuza clan at Muto’s own home, only to have Muto’s wife fight back. This unexpectedly left the Kitagawa clan in shambles, with their top hit man Ikegami wounded and Muto’s wife in prison. Despite the carnage, the most unfortunate fallout from this attack is when Muto’s beloved actress daughter, Mitsuko, has her adorable toothpaste commercial taken off the air. Now, Ikegami seeks revenge, while Muto only has one desire: to have his wife return from prison to see Mitsuko star in her first movie. Enter The F★★★ Bombers, an eager but untalented group of wannabe filmmakers whose dreams of making movies have come crashing down after 10 years of 8mm efforts. Circumstances have brought them to this fateful moment where they’ll be able to film – in 35mm! – the actual climactic battle between yakuzas in an over-the-top, blood-splattering epic for the ages.
