I had never read the Gantz manga before I heard that a live action film was being made. However, once I saw the actors in it, I was one hundred percent enrolled to see the movie and knew I had to catch up on the source material first. I fell in love, and since then I've been waiting with bated breath for more news of when the Gantz film would be coming our way. Or Japan's way, at least.
This new trailer is the first official one and really got my engines revving. Starring Kazunari Ninomiya (
Ōoku ), Ken'ichi Matsuyama ( Death Note, Detroit Metal City) and Yuriko Yoshitaka (Tokyo DOGS), the film is slated to open in January 2011 and will get a sequel as well. The storyline, like the manga, follows the adventures of two men who return to life after a horrible subway accident and are forced to act in missions that are dangerous and mysterious. Sounds so good! I can't wait to see more.
