SAMURAI MARATHON
Debuts on Blu-ray™ and DVD on July 21
On Digital Now


PLANO, TEXAS (June 2, 2019)
– From award-winning director Bernard Rose (Candyman, Frankenstein) comes SAMURAI MARATHON, the action-adventure flick with a samurai twist debuting on Blu-ray™ and DVD on July 21 from Well Go USA Entertainment. Rose — whose wildly diverse career has spanned horror classics (Candyman), historical romances (Anna Karenina) and indie dramas (Ivans xtc) — co-wrote the screenplay with Japan’s Hiroshi Saito and Kikumi Yamagishi based on the novel The Marathon Samurai: Five Tales of Japan’s First Marathon. Inspired by a race still held yearly, the film follows an aging lord who challenges his samurai to a grueling marathon—joined covertly by his daughter—and the group must overcome deadly odds to survive. SAMURAI MARATHON stars Takeru Satoh (Rurouni Kenshin: Final Chapter), Nana Komatsu (The World of Kanako, Silence), Mirai Moriyama (Rage, Vision), Shota Sometani (First Love) and Danny Huston (X-Men Wolverine, TV’s “Yellowstone”). SAMURAI MARATHON is available on digital now.



Produced by Academy Award® winners Jeremy Thomas (The Last Emperor) and Toshiaki Nakazawa
(Departures). SAMURAI MARATHON features some impressive below-the-line support, including an original score composed by modern music legend Philip Glass (The Truman Show), costume designs by Oscar® winner Emi Wada (Ran) and cinematography by Takuro Ishizaka (John Woo's Manhunt).



Synopsis:

Acclaimed filmmaker Bernard Rose has created a stunning visual feast complemented by a haunting score from iconic composer Philip Glass. Inspired by a race still held annually in Japan, Samurai Marathon is a lively action flick with a samurai twist. In late feudal Japan, a young ninja (Satoh) operates undercover in the court of an aging lord and his rebellious daughter. When the lord challenges his lazy samurai to a punishing marathon—joined covertly by Princess Yuki—the ninja finds his loyalties put to the test. Facing impossible odds, this unusual band of characters is running a race to either win or die.
