How Did Bunraku Sneak Past Everyone?

Alright, I have no idea what the hell to think of Bunraku. Woody Harrelson was all I needed to see to be sold but the film also includes, Demi Moore, Ron Perlman, and Josh Hartnett. With crazy lighting and cg, and an insane story to boot, I'm blown away that no one seems to heard of Bunraku yet. While the film itself premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival in 2010, the US version will be released to the public on September 30th. Here's the brief IMDB description:
In a world without guns, a mysterious drifter (Josh Hartnett) walks into a strange town terrorized by the ruthless Nicola (Ron Perlman) and his army of thugs, headed by nine deadly assassins. The drifter is forced to trust a young samurai (Gackt) looking to restore his family's honor, and the local bartender (Woody Harrelson) who has been secretly awaiting a dream team to help overthrow Nicola’s tyrannical regime. 
After seeing the trailer, I feel like I should expect some sort of mixture between Sin City and Sukiyaki Western Django, with slightly under budget undertones. Keep your eyes out for this one, I'm feeling it will slide by unnoticed.
