This looks really good ,Its the story of a minor official that most people thought was an idiot yet he managed to defend his castle against Hideyoshi's Army ,
Outnumbered at a ratio of 40-1 .

It hits theaters in Japan later this year and sadly that's probably as far as it will get .

I agree, it does look good. I hope there will be plenty of action in the movie.

I read the original novel.
The story is comedic but last is very moving.

Nomura Mansai as Nobo don't match at all.
Nobo suppose to be big and tall but not so smart man.

I was hoping it would be a Sengoku version of Ironclad, but I guess not.

Nobo no Shiro was first published as a movie script Shinobu no Shiro (忍ぶの城)in 2003 and won an award. The script had no detail on Nobo-sama's appearance. Then Wada Ryou, the writer of Shinobu no Shiro, novelized the script which was titled Nobo no Shiro. So, if the casting of the movie was made based on the script, not the novel, it does not have to follow the description of the novel.

So, I think I should start looking for the script, too.

The trailer is for theater. The theatrical release was postponed because of the earthquake and the tsunami, because the castle was assaulted with massive water. The producers afraid it would bring back bad memories to the victims.

It will get played on this theater this November, but I heard they cut out some sequences which a mass of water engulfs land around the castle.

Why do Japanese trailers ALWAYS have to suddenly throw in crappy pop music randomly into the middle?

Watched it on the flight to Japan. Cheesy, sappy, and very very good. I quite enjoyed it. Historically accurate? Hardly, but it's forgivable. It's an enjoyable, fun movie.

I just rented it from the local Japanese Video store , i agree it is a fun movie and worth a watch, but maybe not the great Sengoku film many have hyped it to be .
