Takashi Miike on "Yatterman"

Takashi Miike, the both famous and infamous director of such beloved family-unfriendly fare as "Audition," "Ichi the Killer" and "Visitor Q," takes a step toward the Japanese mainstream with his new film "Yatterman," which had its world premiere at this year's New York Comic Con. Starring pop star Sho Sakurai, the film's an adaptation of a late '70s anime series that pits a teenage couple against a thieving gang in a war of giant mechas.

I got a chance to sit down with prolific filmmaker on the eve of "Yatterman"'s debut to talk about the films and how to deal with the expectation of hard-core fans.
