'Unforgiven' Remake Trailer: Going East Without Eastwood


We've been watching American versions of Japanese films for years, whether it's "The Grudge" or Spike Lee's forthcoming retelling of "Oldboy." Clint Eastwood's classic Western "A Fistful of Dollars" was basically an English language clone of the work of Akira Kurosawa, who was of course inspired by American Westerns (cue Justin Timberlake singing "What Goes Around...")

Keeping that tradition alive, Ken Watanabe steps in for Clint Eastwood in a Japanese language remake of 1990 Best Picture Oscar winner "Unforgiven." American audiences know Watanabe from "Inception" and "Batman Begins," but let's not forget his introduction to Western folks via Tom Cruise and 2003's "The Last Samurai," where the Cruisemeister actually played the title character.

Columbia Pictures

Girlfriends. Gal pals. Sidekicks. Whatever you call them, superheroes just wouldn't be able to rise to their full powers without a love interest — and usually a healthy dose of some smoldering on-screen sexuality.

So whether it's the famous upside down kiss between Tobey Maguire's Spider-Man and girlfriend Kirsten Dunst or Gwyneth Paltrow's slinky skirts and witty banter with Iron Man Robert Downey, Jr., the chemistry between a superhero and his civilian paramour is usually an integral part of the story.

Everything We Know About 'The Dark Knight Rises' So Far

The Dark Knight Rises
Warner Bros.

IMAX cameras. Bat pods. Anne Hathaway in a tight leather outfit. Where does Christopher Nolan get those wonderful toys?

Nolan was behind Warner Bros.' hugely successful relaunch of the DC Comics icon, "Batman Begins," which proved a revelation after the cinematic devastation of "Batman & Robin." After the triumph of 2008's super-sequel "The Dark Knight" -- which garnered buckets of praise, a posthumous Oscar for Heath Ledger, and north of a billion Bat Bucks -- a third and final chapter was inevitable. With all the key players back, it's about damn time "The Dark Knight Rises." Get More »

That honor goes to Kato (Jay Chou), ostensibly the Green Hornet's driver and sidekick, but also a kung-fu badass capable of delivering the smackdown to evil wherever he finds it.

He's just the latest entrant in a lineup of superhero second bananas who shine as brightly as the guys they back up, so join us as we salute the guys behind the guys. Get More »
