Watch The New Full Trailer For Sono Sion's TOKYO TRIBE
Japan cinema goers are a month and a half away from the release of director Sono Sion‘s new live-action manga adaptation Tokyo Tribe, and the full action-packed trailer has just arrived courtesy of Nikkatsu offering a better glimpse into what Sono‘s vision of author Santa Inoue’s universe looks like on screen. And if the new trailer is any indication, it looks like Sono is going the route of part fantasy gangster thriller spectacle, part hip-hop musical, with lead debut actor Young Dais and actor Shota Sometani kicking things off with a few rhymes of their own.
TOKYO TRIBE Brings Some Cool New Posters And A Little "Hope"!
Tokyo. A multitude of tribes exist, with resident youth ruling the streets through violence while protecting their own turf. Shibuya Saru, Shinjuku Hands, Kabuki GiraGira Girls, Musashino Saru and…Bukuro Wu – Ronz. Until now, crossing territorial lines has led to riots and rumbles.
The New Teaser For TOKYO TRIBE Brings An Orchestra Of Chaos!
Why Don’t You Play In Hell director Sono Sion is back in the fray this week ahead of the upcoming release of his latest beat-em-up gangster flick, Tokyo Tribe, based on manga author Santa Inoue’s 1993 publication and subsequent serial anime. Following the first promotional still released several days ago, we now get to see some of the brutal live-action chaos set to dazzle audiences in the form of a glorious new teaser with hip hop artist Young Dais leading in his big screen debut, along with Ryuta Sato, Nana Seino, Ryohei Suzuki, Shoko Nakagawa and Riki Takeuchi.
Tokyo Tribe releases in Japan on August 30.
Set sometime in the future, five years have passed since the Shibuya riots. There are now several tribes that exists in Tokyo. Boys makeup tribes and they occupy areas under their influence. Kai Deguchi is a member of the tribe Musashino Saru led by Tera.
One day, a member of Musashino Saru is killed by rival tribe Bukuro Wu-RONZ led by Mera. Kai and Mera are former best friends, but not anymore. Meanwhile, Tera, the leader of Musashino Saru and a moderate who forbids using violence, is killed by Mera from Bukuro Wu-RONZ.
Musashino Saru is now divided by two sides: one advocates following their slain leader’s non-violence idealogy and the other side who wants to use violence to exact revenge. A riot soon ensues among the tribes.
