Trailers from Hell: Brian Trenchard-Smith on Akira Kurosawa's Mythic, Primal and Highly Influential Classic 'Seven Samurai'

Akira Kurosawa Week continues at Trailers from Hell with director Brian Trenchard-Smith introducing “The Seven Samurai,” Kurosawa’s mythic and primal epic of feudal Japan that became a virtual template for latter-day action films.

BTS details the troubled production of one of Kurosawa’s
greatest achievements, which influenced western filmmakers for decades.
Kurosawa professed himself disappointed with the popular 1960 Americanized
remake The Magnificent Seven, which spawned numerous sequels and ripoffs.
Screenwriter John Sayles blasted the concept into outer space in 1980 for
Battle Beyond the Stars.
