Marina Antunes [Celluloid 11.19.13] Japan action

While Takashi Miike's Shield of Straw (trailer) didn't manage to play the local festival circuit – not to mention it doesn't look like it'll be getting any sort of North American release any time soon – Miike's next project is already wrapped and ready for distribution.

Based on a popular manga, The Mole Song: Undercover Agent Reiji (AKA Mole's Song) centers on a police constable who is publicly fired as a way to have him infiltrate a gang. It sounds promising but if you're expecting gritty, serious Miike, this is probably not the movie to get excited about. Based on the teaser and the newly minted trailer, both below, Mole's Song looks like wacky Miike is in full play here and though that's definitely good news for long time fans, some might find this version of Miike grating.

Mole's Song is scheduled for Japanese release on February 15, 2014. Who knows, maybe this one will make the festival rounds.
