Japanese martial arts icon Tak Sakaguchi (Versus, Rise of the Machine Girl) gets top billing in the film Crazy Samurai: 400 vs. 1. The trailer is below. This film is set to debut on the martial arts streamer HI-YAH! on February 12, 2021, just before its Digital, Blu-ray, and DVD drop on March 2 from Well Go USA Entertainment.

According to the press release:

“The highlight of this extraordinary film is a 77-minute action sequence shot in one continuous take, a ‘marathon battle [that] rivals any ever filmed’ (Forbes). Director Yuji Shimomura (Death Trance, Re: Born) has crafted an epic achievement in action choreography around Sakaguchi, who plays Japan’s most legendary swordsman—Miyamoto Musashi (1584-1645), a warrior undefeated in at least 60 documented duels—as he takes on his most difficult battle.”
