Yakusa, into the Sun or Katana??

#1
I see that in Imdb the filmography of Richard Rionda Del Castro (as Producer, he is the producer of Into the sun) contains the movie "Katana" which has the same Plot outline that "Yakusa" :
At the end of the desciption of the movie you can read that this film is also known as Yakusa.
So, an another title for the new film of Steven Seagal???
look at : http://us.imdb.com/title/tt0377129/

Bye.................................

Wasn't this fixed and then un-fixed on IMDB? Yakuza is the another studio's film of the same name, not starring our Steven. Apparently, their information got onto Steven's information on IMDB. Then it was fixed. And then it came back again (someone here, I believe was keeping an eye on this a while back and reported all the comings and goings of this film).

"Into the Sun" is Steven's Yakuza film, isn't it?

Hmmmm, could be...Anyone know what a katana is? I have heard the term but can't recall the meaning...
KATANA:

The katana is the Japanese longsword (Daito), although many Japanese use this word generically as a catch all word for sword. "Katana" (pronounced [katana]) is the kun-yomi (Japanese reading) of the kanji 刀; the on-yomi (Chinese reading) is "tou" (pronounced [to:]). It refers to a specific type of curved, single-edged sword traditionally used by the Japanese samurai. The scabbard for a katana is referred to as a saya.

It is primarily used for slashing, and can be wielded one- or two-handed (the second being the most common mode). It is worn with cutting-edge up. While the art of practically using the sword for its original purpose is now somewhat obsolete, kenjutsu has turned into gendai budo - modern martial arts for a modern time. The art of drawing the katana is iaido, and kendo is an art of fencing with a shinai (bamboo sword) protected by helmet and armour. Old koryu sword schools do still exist (Kashima Shinto Ryu, Kashima Shin Ryu, Katori Shinto Ryu).

Yep, your right TDwoj. I forget where the website for their movie is but it is a different movie than the one Seagal is making..That maybe the reason for the name change in Seagal's movie because another movie had already taken the title..

You're welcome, Lotus. And don't feel dumb. Why should you have known that? I didn't know it until I looked it up. :D
