On October 21, 1600, the Eastern Army led by Tokugawa Ieyasu defeated the Western Army led by Ishida Mitsunari in the Battle of Sekigahara, a decisive victory that signified the beginning of the Tokugawa shogunate. Adapting a novel by Shiba Ryotaro, director Harada Masato (The Emperor in August) takes on the daunting challenge of staging one of the most famous military engagements of Sengoku history. A blockbuster in every sense of the word, Sekigahara delivers rousing action scenes and new perspective on the monumental battle.

Sekigahara's sprawling cast also includes Higashide Masahiro, Matsuyama Kenichi, Takito Kenichi, Hira Takehiro and Arimura Kasumi.
