Upcoming Movies - Students Killing one another

Here is a movie spin-off that is coming soon that I thought I should let you know about.

It is none other than Battle Royale. I don't know if you have ever heard of it but it was an extremely controversial novel, written by Koushun Takami, that was later on turned into a Japanese cult classic movie. Battle Royale is about a high school class that is forced to kill each other. Although it is not guaranteed that this one will be made, because of the Virginia Tech Massacre (for obvious reasons). The original one is an excellent movie that dealt with student relationships, guns, love, hate and more. It is definitely one my top favourite films. If you ever get a chance to go to Japan, make sure to grab the DVD. If your lucky they might have it at a Chinese night market.

Also if you loved Kill Bill. The actress who plays Gogo Yubari is in it.
