Hideaki Anno’s SHIN KAMEN RIDER Rides Into Action In The First Teaser Trailer
More than seven years in the making and more than a year since its announcement with a pair of teasers to mark the semicentury festivities last October, director Hideaki Anno is heeding the call with a brand new teaser trailer as of Friday for Shin Kamen Rider ahead of its March 2023 release in Japan from Toei.
College student and motorcycle enthusiast Takeshi Hongo is abducted by the evil organization Shocker and converted into a cyborg as part of their plans for world domination. Before they can brainwash him to do their bidding, he escapes and uses his new enhanced abilities as Kamen Rider to wage a one-man war against Shocker.
Sosuke Ikamatsu (The Last Samurai, Death Note: Light Up The New World) etches in his take on the classic hero character of Takeshi Hongo, memorably portrayed by actor Hiroshi Fujioka in the original series. Also starring are Minami Hamabe (Kakegurui – Compulsive Gambler) and Tasuku Emoto (Anime Supremacy!), with Shinya Tsukamoto, Toru Tezuka and Suzuki Matsuo.
