October: Rurouni Kenshin Movie
(Director: Keishi Otomo, 2012, 134min. Rating: R13).

January, 1868. The shogun's forces are defeated by a samurai uprising under a lone swordsman known as "Battosai the Killer", signalling the birth of a new era. Once legendary for his killing prowess, Battosai becomes a wanderer under the name of Kenshin Himura and vows never to kill again. But things are not so simple: faced with those who wish to return Japan to times of darkness, Kenshin is forced to grapple with what renouncing violence could mean.

A live-action adaptation of a popular anime and manga series, Rurouni Kenshin was a box-office smash in Japan, grossing over 555 million yen ($7 million) in its first five days. Also, Selected for the 2012 Japanese Film Festival in Melbourne and Sydney. The first movie to sell out its screenings in both cities, then given bonus screenings which have also sold out!
