Better known to stateside genre fans as the director behind "Cold Fish" and the epic and weird "Love Exposure," for his latest effort, Sion Sono is ripping directly from the headlines and seemingly playing it totally straight. Inspired by the 2011 earthquake that rocked Japan and unleashed a nuclear disaster that still has repercussions today, Sono has put together "The Land of Hope," and as you might expect from this new U.K. trailer for the film, it's pretty intense stuff.

Is seems Sion Sono isn't done with last March's devastating earthquake in Japan just yet. Perhaps best known to genre fans stateside for his thriller "Cold Fish" or the epically bonkers "Love Exposure," last year Sono went to Venice with "Himizu" his tale centered on the danger zone following the Japanese earthquake. And with cameras now rolling on this next film, he hasn't left that event behind.
