Trailer and promotional images for Japanese movie Rurouni Kenshin: Kyoto Inferno, sequel to the 2012 box office hit which is based on a popular Japanese manga.
Trailer and poster for Hollywood movie Godzilla, the third American production (1956, 1998) based on the Japanese Godzilla franchise. In theatres May 16, 2014.
The film is directed by British filmmaker Gareth Edwards, written by Max Borenstein and stars Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Ken Watanabe, Elizabeth Olsen, Juliette Binoche, Sally Hawkins, David Strathairn and Bryan Cranston.
On side note, Godzilla is a (slightly tweaked) combination of two Japanese words, Gorilla and Whale. The original pronunciation was Gojira (gorira + kujira).
English subbed Japanese trailer for Rurouni Kenshin, a live action adaptation from the popular namesake anime/manga. The film is scheduled for August release.
The story revolves around Himura Kenshin – once a fearsome assassin in wartime era who turned into a wanderer who helped to maintain peace and help the needed once the war was over. I’m not a fan of live adapations from a manga/anime, but this looks ok.
The movie stars Takeru Satoh, Emi Takei, Munetaka Aoki and Yuu Aoi. Yosuke Eguchi, one of my favourite Japanese actors, plays a minor role as Kenshin’s old foe.
