Did you know

One of the top-10 highest-grossing films in Japan. An American remake of Battle Royale has been in this on and off since 2006, likely because nobody in a post-Columbine Hollywood could seriously contemplate making a film about high school students killing each other. The 2007 shooting at Virginia Tech especially hurt the project.

Quentin Tarantino named this as one of his all-time favorite movies and his favorite movie that were made since he started making movies.

Did you know

In April 2013, seven years after the film was put on the index for youth-endangering media, the film was confiscated by the local court of Fulda, Hesse, Germany. This meant that no one in Germany was allowed to sell the movie and all copies were to be confiscated by the Police.

In the future, the Japanese government captures a class of ninth-grade students and forces them to kill each other under the revolutionary “Battle Royale” act.
