Miike Takashi is well on the way with his latest, Jojo’s Bizzare Adventure hitting screens in Japan this August. Indeed, the story does reach some seriously bizzare and weird points which makes a guy like Miike such a fitting director as he has a knack for approaching oddities at great depth on film.
Such is what we now get in his latest follow-up from working on recent titles like Yakuza Apocalypse and Terra Formars and the forthcoming Blade Of The Immortal which opens in April. For this, it’s off to the finish line with the first official teaser now making thïe rounds from Warner Bros. Japan with actor Yamazaki Kento leading the cast for the film, inspired by Diamond Is Unbreakable arc in Araki Hirohiko’s hit manga series.
In the fictional town of Moriou, Josuke Higashikata is the illegitimate son of Joseph Joestar. He possess a Stand (super power), called Crazy Diamond, that allows him to restore or fix broken objects or animals. Josuke and his friends go to war with other Stand users.
That war, stemmed from a long and ongoing battle years prior, is ignited by an elusive killer and the owner of a mystical bow and arrow to which you know what happens if you’ve read the manga or seen the anime. And so with the teaser, there isn’t much to see on the VFX end with five months to go, though I’d count on an official trailer to help lend us a glimpse into what the battling Stands will look like.
For now, you get a quick glimpse of Miike’s vision for the very town in which our adventure commences with a cast that also adds Iseya Yusuke in the role of Kujo Jotaro, Kamiki Ryunosuke as Hirose Koichi and actress Komatsu Nana as Yamagishi Yukako with Okada Masaki and Mackenyu as the Nijimura Brothers – Keicho and Okuyasu, and Yamada Takayuki as Angelo.
Catch the teaser below as well as the glistening new poster and stay tuned for more updates!
