It's been announced that the upcoming movie, "Nobou no Shiro", has postponed its release date to fall 2012. The film was originally scheduled to hit box offices on September 17th.

The reason for this delay is because of the content of the movie. According to the distributing agency, Asmik Ace, "This movie includes the dynamic images of a 'Water Attack' (a strategy in which one surrounds the enemy's castle with a soil wall and runs water into there). Although this 'water attack' is historically accurate, we have discussed whether or not the representation of the 'water attack' is proper to be released at this time. Ultimately, we have decided to postpone the release."

"Nobou no Shiro" is a historical movie from the Sengoku Era, in which 500 warriors from the Oshi castle's army fights against 20,000 of Toyotomi Hideyoshi's army. Kyogen stage actorNomura Mansai stars in this movie as the leader of the "Oshi-jou", and he'll be joined byEikiura Nana, Narimiya Hiroki, Yamaguchi Tomomitsu, Kamiji Yusuke, Yamada Takayuki, Hira Takehiro, Ichimura Masachika, and Sato Koichi.
