This is a big jump from the teaser last December which showed absolutely nothing. Scripted by Mamoru Oshii, the story is about the life of real life samurai Musashi and it's directed by Mizuho Nishikubo. The film is produced by Production IG and will open in theaters in Japan this summer.

The film deals with the fact and fiction about the Niten Ichi-ryū of Musashi Miyamoto, the seeker of the way of the invincible sword. Miyamoto is a legendary swordsmen who pioneered the Hyōhō Niten Ichi-ryū style of two-sword fighting and wrote The Book of Five Rings, a book that has been compared to Sun Tzu's The Art of War for its insight on tactics and strategy.
