Trailer and promo images for Japanese heist film Lupin III. It’s based on the manga series of the same name by Monkey Punch, first published in 1967. The manga has spawned into a media franchise which includes anime series, live-action shows and video games. It’s still popular these days.
This is the second live-action movie adaptation of the manga. Directed by Ryuhei Kitamura and stars Shun Oguri, Jerry Yan, Tetsuji Tamayama, Gō Ayano, Meisa Kuroki and Tadanobu Asano. The story follows the title character who lead a band of gentleman thieves. In cinemas in Japan on August 30.
That’s a lot of English for a Japanese trailer, got me confused for a moment. Bet the Japanese people will be just as baffled, if not worse, if the whole movie is like that. Can’t tell much about the overall quality of the film, but I think the main cast manage to capture the essence of the characters.
