Deadball Trailer - Three Strikes And You're Dead

Bounty Films has released an official UK trailer for their upcoming release of Deadball.

The movie stars Tak Sakaguchi as juvenile delinquent Jubeh Yakyu who gave up playing baseball after his accidentally killed his own father with a lethal pitch.

In constant trouble with the law, he is sent to the Pterodactyl Juvenile Reformatory, run by the evil Headmistress Ishihara, her assistant Ilsa and Governor Mifune, but they have no intention of reforming the youngster. They want to see Jubeh's lethal pitching arm back in action and are prepared to play dirty to get their way.

To protect his new friend and cellmate Four Eyes, Jubeh is forced to play ball again and join the Reformatory's team, The Gauntlets, in a tournament for all the juvenile delinquent teams in Japan. Their opponents are the lethal girls of St. Black Dahlia High School (that's them above). Batter up! It's time to play Deadball.

The horror-splatter-comedy is the work of Yudai Yamaguchi, who directed the sports-meets-slaughter of Battlefield Baseball, also starring Sakaguchi, so expect blood, bad taste and babes.

That's a cheeky bit of casting having Sakaguchi, in his late 30s, playing a teenage delinquent, but Sakaguchi always throws himself into his action scenes with gusto. Deadball comes out on DVD from Bounty Films on 7 May.
