Poster and trailer for Akira Kurosawa’s Ran 4K restoration release

A new UK poster and trailer have arrived online for the 4K restoration cinema release of director Akira Kurosawa’s 1985 epic Ran; check them out below…

Hidetora Ichimonji (Tatsuya NakadaiYojimbo, Kagemusha) an ageing warlord who, after spending his life consolidating his empire, decides to abdicate and divide his kingdom amongst his three sons, Taro (Akira Terao – Letter from the Mountain, Dreams), Jiro (Jinpachi Nezu – The Man in White, Red Shadow: Akakage) and Saburo (Daisuke Ryû – Tono monogatari, Gojo reisenki: Gojoe). When Hidetora’s youngest son Saburo voices concerns about the wisdom of his father’s plan, claiming that treachery within the family will be inevitable, Hidetora mistakes these comments for a threat and banishes him. This allows Taro and Jiro to take the reigns of power unopposed, leading to a brutal and bloody struggle to win absolute power.

Ran is set for release on April 1st.
