Takashi Miike is coming to NY Comic Con


Ny Comic Con hasn't made an official announcement or even put this on their website's guest list. Takashi Miike is coming to NY Comic Con. He is the direct of films such as Sukiyaki Western Django, The Great Yokai War and other Japanese fare. He is doing a film for relase in Japan on March 7th called Yatterman. It is a classic 70's anime that was redone last year and is now a movie. Plot is down below from NY Comic Con's schedule:

Yatterman


Fans have been waiting for Takashi Miike to create a giant robot movie for years, and finally it's here! Starring Japanese superstar Sho Sakurai, Yatterman is the story of two teenagers who run a super, high-tech toy shop which serves as a cover for their crime-busting exploits as Yatterman, a pair of masked super heroes who pilot the sentient dog robot, Yatterwan. Takashi Miike and Sho Sakurai will be at NYCC to speak about Yatterman at 4 PM on Friday in the IGN Theater. Both will then appear at the world premiere of Yatterman at an exclusive theater in NYC! The world premiere of Yatterman is presented by Nikkatsu, the New York Asian Film Festival, and New York Comic Con. For details as to where and when, head over to the Nikkatsu Booth (1315).

This is something I would have hoped Otakon to gotten. They are trying to get US distributors attention, so that is why they are doing this before it comes out in Japan. Hey , Mark P. This may be reason for you to come to NY Comic Con, Right.
