Not long back we brought you the first teaser trailer for Sion Sono's latest cinematic oddity, Shinjuku Swan. Well now we can present to you the films main trailer, and as you might expect, it doesn't disappoint. 

Love him or hate him (and just for the record we love him here at Twistedwing), Sion Sono (Cold Fish, Love Exposure, Suicide Club) is back in action. Based on the manga series "Shinjuku Swan Kabukicho Skauto Sabaibaru" by Ken Wakui, Shinjuku Swan is set for release in Japan on May 30, 2015.

Set in Kabukicho, a red-light district in Shinjuku, Tokyo, Shinjuku Swan tells the story of a jobless man called Tatsuhiko Shiratori (Gou Ayano) and a scout named Matora (Yusuke Iseya) who recruits girls on the streets to work in the adult entertainment business. Matora takes a liking to Tatsuhiko and introduces him to the world in which he works.

Big, bold, brash and undoubtedly bonkers, Shinzuku Swan is pretty much guaranteed a release on our shores, though we may have to wait a little while for that. For now though, sit back and enjoy the teaser trailer. We'll keep you up to date with any further insights when we get them. Like, for example, English subtitles maybe...
