First images from Guy Moshe's oddly stylish Bunraku make their way online

Now here's something potentially interesting...

Making its world premiere as part of the Toronto International Film Festival's "Midnight Madness" line-up, Guy Moshe's (HOLLY) sophomore effort BUNRAKU looks to f*ck us up every which way it can as stylishly as possible.

These images from the film below - courtesy of the good boys over at Collider - show off a mish-mash of design and genre styles, though I get the feeling they're not really giving us a true idea of what this thing will look like in motion. BUNRAKU is described as "an amalgam of samurai film, spaghetti western and chop socky – and using a stylish blend of neo-noir, German expressionism and Russian futurism."

The film stars Josh Hartnett, Woody Harrelson, GACKT, Kevin McKidd, Ron Perlman, and Demi Moore. Hopefully we'll get a trailer for this soon!

Synopsis: In a world with no guns, a mysterious drifter (Josh Hartnett), a young samurai and a bartender (Woody Harrelson) plot revenge against a ruthless leader (Ron Perlman) and his army of thugs, headed by nine diverse and deadly assassins. This visually stunning film is filled with uniquely choreographed action sequences of a new style that melds east with west and old school with new. The film also stars Demi Moore.

Extra Tidbit: Ron Perlman's looking very "Beauty and the Beast" there.
