Wow! so we finally find out what kind of movie it will be: historical music. Interesting combination. Teaser looks better than the poster, which does not 'spark joy' for me.

some big names on the cast and the teaser looks spectacular it sells the movie entierly. Hopefully they use a better poster now, current one is too minimalistic

Masaaki Yuasa returns for a historical legend.

The music sounds great, a combination of both historical and modern.

This looks like it will be interesting.
