    Sorry The Force-san,

    Thought you meant any movie (but then you would have posted in the Off-Topic (dumb me). I've written this because there's a crew at "my hotel" for this film and I saw photographs of some people organized "Ó la shogun" (formation of men on hills and near forest).

    The Force,

    Though you can find movies about individual ronin-samurai in abundance (mostly quite old), true samurai war type movies have been rare overall, and don't seem to come out more than once or twice per decade, unfortunately.

    I am sure though that l ahev heard that there are 2 movies in the makign that will feature full scale battles set in the Japanese era!
    Also not Japanese but there is also a Alexander the Great movie in the making.
    Hope those movies come soon!
