Word to the wise: if a creepy-looking Mark Hamill asked where you hid the diamonds, it's best to tell him immediately -- unless you like the idea of getting a rusty nail impaled into your kneecap (Ouch!). Watch Hamill as a Peter Lorre-esque psychotic gangster in this new trailer for the hyper-stylized crime thriller "Sushi Girl," from first-time director Kern Saxton.
The "Star Wars" star is just one among many recognizable faces you'll see in the preview. Of course, recognition might vary a bit on whether you grew up watching genre movies. For instance, Noah Hathaway, the former kid actor from 80s fantasy cult pic, "The NeverEnding Story," makes his feature return, starring as a freshly-paroled jewel thief who gets kidnapped by his previous mob employers (Candyman's Tony Todd and Mark Hamill). It turns out these baddies are seeking the whereabouts of some stolen diamonds, and they don't mind using a little torture to get the information.
Set to be released on Video-On-Demand on November 27th, the movie co-stars James Duval, Andy Mackenzie, Cortney Palm, and features some cool cameos by the likes of Michael Biehn, Sonny Chiba, Jeff Fahey, and Danny Trejo. "Sushi Girl" will also be hitting theaters in January.
Fish has spent six years in jail. Six years alone. Six years keeping his mouth shut about the robbery, about the other men involved. The night he is released, the four men he protected with silence celebrate his freedom with a congratulatory dinner. The meal is a lavish array of sushi, served off the naked body of a beautiful young woman. The sushi girl seems catatonic, trained to ignore everything in the room, even if things become dangerous. Sure enough, the four unwieldy thieves can't help but open old wounds in an attempt to find their missing loot.
