A new trailer has been released for Kazuyoshi Kumakiri's "My Man" (out June 14, 2014)

Puritanical NSFW Warning: There's a butt.

Based on a Naoki Prize-winning novel by Kazuki Sakuraba, the movie stars Fumi Nikaido as a girl named Hana who's taken in by a distant relative named Jungo (Tadanobu Asano) after losing both her parents in a natural disaster. The two form a relationship like father and daughter, but when things turn physical, conflicts arise with the people around them. Years later, as Hana prepares for her wedding, she reflects back on her time with Jungo.

First teaser for Takashi Miike's upcoming horror movie "Over Your Dead Body" (Kuime) starring Ebizo Ichikawa, Kou Shibasaki, and Hideaki Ito.

The movie is a modern take of the classic Japanese horror story "Yotsuya Kaidan". Ichikawa and Shibasaki play actors in the stage play version, Tokaido Yotsuya Kaidan. Over time, the line between fantasy and reality becomes blurred as the murderous, vengeful themes of the play bleed into their own personal relationship.
