One of the most thrilling movie epics of all time, Seven Samurai (Shichinin no samurai) tells the story of a sixteenth-century village whose desperate inhabitants hire the eponymous warriors to protect them from invading bandits. This three-hour ride from director Akira Kurosawa — featuring legendary actors Toshiro Mifune and Takashi Shimura — seamlessly weaves philosophy and entertainment, delicate human emotions and relentless action, into a rich, evocative, and unforgettable tale of courage and hope.

Seven Samurai has spawned several remakes and entire genres worth of influenced films since its original release (having won the award for Best Direction at the 1954 Venice Film Festival). This brand new 4K restoration debuted at Cannes, where it excited imaginations and enthralled audiences all over again. Do not miss this once-in-a-lifetime theatrical rerelease of one of the greatest films ever made, restored to 4K brilliance!
