BABY ASSASSINS: The Hyper-Kinetic Action/Comedy from Well Go USA Hits HI-YAH! July 22nd & DVD/Blu-Ray in August (Trailer Premiere at SDCC!)

Asian action has been well represented today with the new trailer for Netflix’s South Korean actioner Carter coming out earlier. Now Well Go USA is getting in on the action with a teaser trailer for its upcoming quirky and hyper-kinetic Japanese action/comedy Baby Assassins. The over-the-top thriller loaded with hijinks to spare will debut a brand-new trailer at SDCC later this month and in the meantime, we’ve got a tease for you along with the international trailer to pique your interest! Check out the videos, images and poster below! I love the “They’re too young for this sh!t” tagline to boot! Clever…

It’s “pure fun” (Film Threat) when director Hugo Sakamoto (A JanitorHangman’s Knot) and action director Kensuke Sonomura (John Woo’s ManhuntNowhere ManHydraBushido Man) combine their talents for the critically acclaimed martial arts action-comedy BABY ASSASSINS, debuting July 22 exclusively on the martial arts streaming service Hi-YAH! before hitting Digital, Blu-ray and DVD August 16 from Well Go USA Entertainment. Akari Takaishi (Distant ThunderA Janitor) as “Chisato” and Saori Izawa (A Janitor) as “Mahiro” give “positively radiant performances” (Elements of Madness) as highly trained teenage assassins who must get “real” jobs as a cover, and—even worse—become roommates. However, after a nasty run-in with a Yakuza, the girls must band together to survive an epic fight for their lives.  The cast also includes Masanori Mimoto (Enter the Fat DragonHydraFirst LoveYakuza ApocalypseGod of War).


Upon graduation, highly trained teenage assassins Chisato and Mahiro are informed by upper management that they will need to hold down “normal” jobs as a cover, and—even worse—they’ll be forced to share an apartment. However, after an unfortunate run-in with a Yakuza member, the two must band together to survive an epic fight for their lives.
