I have a picture of a japanese movie poster but I can't read anything.
I looks like there is some car chase action in it. Any ideas?

Wish my Japanese was better, given that its virtually non-existent!

Not sure if this helps narrow down but could the main actor be Sonny Chiba? Looks like a 1970s or early 80s film.

Thanks for the hint. I found out that this poster above belongs to one of the Yakuza Deka movies with Sonny Chiba. This one is the poster of the movie Yakuza deka: Oretachi ni haka wa nai (1971) aka Kamikaze Cop, No Epitaph to Us directed by Ryƻichi Takamori.

While searching for this movie title I found an interesting thread about japanese car action movies including screenshots and posters. It is worth a look. adg.invisionzone.com/index.php?showtopic=3216

Here is another promising japanese poster.
Violent Panic: The Big Crash (Boso panikku: Dai gekitotsu)(1979)
I found that here

Glad you were able to identify the film heavymett. Yakuza deka was on my to-watch list so even more reason now to track down this film.

re the japanese car action movie thread: funny I found that thread too when trying to identify the film in the poster. I always suspected that the Japanese cinema during the 1970s had a car chase cycle and this thread confirms it. Now I really want to watch Hairpin Circus with its 17 minute racing sequence finale!

Here's the trailer for Hairpin Circus. This looks like it will be one seriously cool film:

This is definitely on my list. It looks fantastic. Like a mix between Rendevous in Paris, Lemans, and Bullitt.

Funny how she peeled out right as the cop was driving by.
