The first full trailer has arrived for Ryuhei Kitamura’s live action adaptation of Monkey Punch’s legendary Lupin III. Centered on the grandson of the famous French thief Arsene Lupin, Lupin III is joined by fellow associates Jigen, a gun toting mercenary, Goemon, a master samurai, Fujiko, Japan’s most legendary femme fatale. They are pursued, as always, by Interpol detective Inspector Zenigata as they hatch the most daring capers of our time.
Swordplay, international locales, massive explosions, Zenigata on a megahorn, this new trailer seems to deliver everything I want out of the film so hopefully the final product can live up to the promises made in the preview. Lupin III arrives in Japanese cinemas August 30th, 2014!
CAST – Shun Oguri, Tetsuji Tamayama, Go Ayano, Meisa Kuroki, Tadanobu Asano
