Sukiyaki Western Django One Sheets

Sukiyaki Western Django One Sheet

Now that is how you make a One Sheet. I certainly wouldn’t mind having that hanging up on my wall, and it is given here at full resolution, because hey, it goes with our colour palette so nicely. For those not aware, the film is Takashi Miike‘s pastiche of Western, Samurai, Spaghetti and, well, Sukiyaki genres all blended into a cultural appropriation miasma. I caught it at TIFF and it is good fun too.

Don’t sweat the ‘above the line’ acting credit of Quentin Tarantino, his mug is only in the film for 2% of the runtime, but since these posters are aimed at western audiences (specifically the UK), he is likely above the line to sell the product. The rest of the One Sheets are over IGN (via Twitch)

  1. I've got the R2 disc waiting to be watched at home right now for this. Did you also notice on the poster it is Tarantino's face in the background.

    Oh and yeah I totally agree with you these posters rock.

  2. This is a marketing dept. earning their pay. One of the best one sheet's I've ever seen. Anybody know if this is being released theatrically in the US, and if so, when? I have a feeling a DVD premiere is more likely, but hopefully not.

  3. And you can look forward to (or not) probably as much as 25 minutes being shaved off the original Japanese Cut. Not sure about the R2 (Japanese version?) that John is talking about, but I doubt any American distrib will let this come thru uncut. Not from gore, probably from pacing.

    All that being said, I loved it, bloatedness (as Spag-Western tradition in Sergio Leone's case) and all.

  4. I'll have to check the length of the movie when I get home but yeah this is why I alway try to track down the foreign releases of films. Sure once every so often you get a better version with the cuts but I usually prefer to see to the original.

  5. I have been roaming poster sites for months and I gotta say this is one of the finest I have seen. Makes me want to quit my job and become a poster artiste.
