YAKUZA PRINCESS Slices it’s Way to 4K, Blu-Ray & DVD in November!

By: John M Jerva

Yakuza Princess, which is one of the most bad ass, martial arts action pics of the year, is ready to slice its way to home video this November! The film which features Masumi, in a breakout role, is essential, first rate martial arts action at its finest and is essential viewing for any serious fan.

Check out the new box cover art below and be sure to peek at the familiar quote at the bottom of the sleeve!

It’s been a long time coming but Action-Flix has finally made its way to the cover art of an action film. To have it be this exceptional film is truly an honor. I’m definitely going to get a copy for myself and my closest friends and family.

Adapted from the acclaimed graphic novel “Samurai Shiro” by Danilo Beyruth and set in the expansive Japanese community of Sao Paulo, Brazil — the largest Japanese diaspora in the world — Yakuza Princess follows orphan Akemi (played by pop star MASUMI), who, upon turning 21, discovers she is the heiress to half of Japan’s expansive Yakuza crime syndicate. After forging an uneasy alliance with an amnesiac stranger (Jonathan Rhys Meyers) who believes an ancient sword binds their two fates, Akemi unleashes war against the other half of the syndicate who wants her dead. Yakuza Princess is directed by Austrian-Brazilian filmmaker Vicente Amorim, director of the films The Middle of the World, Good, Dirty Hearts, Sister Dulce, Motorrad, and The Division previously. The screenplay is by Vicente Amorim, Fernando Toste, Kimi Lee, and Tubaldini Shelling. Produced by Andre Skaf and Tubaldini Shelling and Filmland Intl.

The slice and dice action extravaganza also stars Jonathan Rhys Meyers, Tsuyoshi Ihara, Toshiji Takeshima, Eijiro Ozaki, and Charles Paraventi.

Yakuza Princess will hit 4K+Blu-Ray Combo Pack and DVD on November 16th from Magnet Releasing!
