Completely mad first trailer smashes its way through for ‘Tokyo Tribe’

Coming from the director of Cold Fish and Love Exposure, we were all expecting Shion Sono’s Tokyo Tribe to be a bit unhinged, but now the first trailer has been released we can happily confirm that the film looks pleasantly insane.

Colourful, violent and filled with vicious rapping gangs, sexy girls and a general sense of all out chaos, Tokyo Tribe looks incredible. You will find the trailer, along with a number of images, below.

Just when you thought Sion Sono’s (Why Don’t You Play In Hell?) unique brand of subversive cinema couldn’t get any more out there, he’s back to explode expectations once again as he ventures even further into uncharted cinematic territory with an ingenious hybrid of Yakuza gang action and hip-hop musical.

Tokyo Tribe is written and directed by Shion Sono.

Synopsis:

“In a futuristic, alternate-world Tokyo, the city is made up of ghetto slums and nightclub playgrounds where gangs of wayward youth rule the streets. The city is carved up into ‘hoods, and the crossing of territorial lines quickly leads to riots and rumbles. On the turf ruled by the savage yakuza Big Buppa, the simmering tension is about to boil over into all-out war. Who will emerge victorious? Territory, friendship, pride, love… Everything is put on the line in a desperate struggle for supremacy!

Based on a popular Manga series (“Tokyo Tribe 2? by Santa Inoue) and told almost entirely in rap verse (by some of Japan’s top rappers), Tokyo Tribe has to be seen to be believed. “The aggressive assault of the beats and rhymes wreaks havoc as a massive ensemble cast shocks, excites, and incites an unparalleled sonic war!”

A keen enthusiast and collector of all horror and extreme films. I can be picky as i like quality in my horror. This doesn't necessarily mean it has to be a classic, but as long as it has something to impress me then i'm a fan. I watch films by the rule that if it doesn't bring out some kind of emotive response then it aint worth watching.
