Kubota Masataka Dons The Mask In The First TOKYO GHOUL Live Action Teaser
Morita Shuhei’s animated treatments of Ishida Sui’s 2011 horror manga, Toyko Ghoul, currently remains on my wishlist of titles to catch up on. I’m drawn to it as it is given the premise as it centers on a young university student whose near-fatal chance encounter with a flesh-eating ghoul sets off a chain of events that begin to consume him into life as a half-human ghoul himself among other ghouls in secret from human society.
I look forward to sinking my teeth into the series at any rate while Japan distributor Shochiku has since granted moviegoers a first teaser trailer for Anniversary helmer Hagiwara Kentaro’s sophomore outing adapting the film for release in July. Actor Kubota Masataka (13 Assassins, The Last Cop: The Movie) stars as our coming-of-age ghoul struggling to cope with his newfound life, next to actress Shimizu Fumika in the wake of a controversial retirement from acting back in January.
University student Ken Kaneki becomes injured by Rize, a human eating ghoul. Ken is saved when a steel frame falls on the ghoul. They are both sent to the hospital, where Ken receives an organ transplant from Rize. Because of that, he becomes a half ghoul.
Actress Aoi Yu, and actors Suzuki Nobuyuki and Oizumi Yo also star.
