It’s The Hunger Games! It’s The Belko Experiment! No, it’s the apex film about people being forced to kill each other in a bloody brawl, Battle Royale! Kinji Fukasaku’s final film stars Takeshi Kitano as he makes forty-two—you read that right, forty-two—of his former students fight to the death in Japan’s annual Battle Royale! Armed with a random weapon and an explosive collar for if they deviate too far from the game’s rules, the students must fight on an island until only one remains. This isn't your grandpa’s Hunger Games, but it is your dad’s. In Japanese with English subtitles. Contains extreme violence and references to sexual violence.
