Japanese Action-Comedy ‘Baby Assassins’ Due on Hi-Yah! Streaming Service July 22, Disc and Digital Aug. 16 From Well Go

The Japanese action-comedy Baby Assassins will debut July 22 exclusively on the martial arts streaming service Hi-Yah! before hitting digital, Blu-ray and DVD Aug. 16 from Well Go USA Entertainment.

Director Hugo Sakamoto (A Janitor, Hangman’s Knot) and action director Kensuke Sonomura (John Woo’s Manhunt, Nowhere Man, Hydra, Bushido Man) combine their talents for the martial arts film. Akari Takaishi (Distant Thunder, A Janitor) as “Chisato” and Saori Izawa (A Janitor) as “Mahiro” play highly trained teenage assassins. Upon graduation, they are informed by upper management that they will need to hold down “normal” jobs as a cover, and — even worse — they’ll be forced to share an apartment. However, after an unfortunate run-in with a Yakuza member, the two must band together to survive an epic fight for their lives. The cast also includes Masanori Mimoto (Enter the Fat Dragon, Hydra, First Love, Yakuza Apocalypse, God of War).
