Manji and Rin are ready to kick more butt, as Warner Brothers Japan released not one, but three new trailers for the live-action Blade of the Immortal film! The first video is a teaser trailer featuring the story, while the second video is a character video for Manji and Rin. Finally, the third video is a behind-the-scenes look at making the film.
All three videos feature the film’s theme song, “Live to Die Another Day ~Sonzai Shōmei~” by Miyavi. The film stars former SMAP idol, Takuya Kimura as Manji, as well as Hana Sugisaki as Rin Asano. Blade of the Immortal is based on Hiroaki Samura’s bloody revenge manga of the same name.
Previously, the staff revealed the film’s previous trailer and visual. The manga follows Rin and her bodyguard, Manji, in their quest for vengeance against the people who murdered Rin’s parents. The manga also inspired an anime adaptation back in 2008.
Takashi Miike is directing the film, which premieres on 29 April 2017.
