In his own words about the teaser image, Sam says that,

"I often include portraits of real people in my work and capture likenesses, but because Ninja Scroll is hand-drawn in a very specific way, I felt it was important to reinterpret the characters in my own style. Here's a sneak peek at a small detail, specifically Kagero, the beautiful ninja."

Ninja Scroll will premiere at the Hackney Picturehouse Cinema on Friday 16th November. This is a premium ticket event and includes admission to the movie, an advance copy of the standard edition Blu-ray and a limited edition, signed and numbered variant Ninja Scroll movie poster by Sam Gilbey. There will be only 300 tickets available for this event making the poster an instant collector's item and world exclusive.

Tickets can be booked online here or by calling the box office 0871 902 5734"
