|Contains Violence & Horror|
At the dawn of a new millennium, Japan is in a state of collapse, with millions out of work and school violence out of control. The beleaguered government retaliates with Battle Royale, a cruel game of survival in which a randomly chosen class is pitted against itself on an abandoned island. As the game progresses, terror and panic challenge the students' fragile trust in each other.
The rules are simple:
It lasts 3 days
Each player starts with food, water and random weapon
If more than one player survives, everyone dies
There is no escape
In the near future, Japan is in a state of collapse. With high unemployment and a generation of youth out of control, the government enacts the Battle Royale programme. Each year, a randomly chosen school class is pitted against itself on an abandoned island in a cruel game of survival. With a former teacher (Takeshi Kitano) overseeing the game, this is a fight to the death with only one winner.
