Directed in 2000 by the late Fukasaku Kinji, international cult hit Battle Royale is one of the most shocking and controversial films of recent years. Based on a Takami Koushun novel, the violent and visceral film takes a Lord of the Flies scenario to modern Japan, telling a tragically brutal and gut-wrenching story amidst the thrilling carnage and bloodshed. Battle Royale pits a group of high school students against each other in a deadly game of survival; taken to a remote island, the teenagers are each given one weapon and a deadline - kill each other or be killed. Led by Kitano Takeshi, this landmark film launched the careers of a new class of young stars, including Fujiwara Tatsuya (Death Note), Maeda Aki (Out of this World), Kuriyama Chiaki (Kill Bill), Tsukamoto Takashi (A Song to the Sun), Shibasaki Kou (Sinking of Japan), and Ando Masanobu (Nightmare Detective).
Fukasaku Kenta stepped into his late father's shoes to direct the 2003 sequel Battle Royale II. After the disastrous events of the first film, the stakes have been upped with Fujiwara Tatsuya and Maeda Aki, reprising their roles, leading a terrorist revolution against the government. Changing the rules of the BR game, the government send in another group of high school students to take down the youth insurgents. The cast includes Maeda Ai (Who's Camus, Anyway), Takeuchi Riki (Babel), and the legendary Sonny Chiba.
