Gantz Live-Action Trailer Hits Japanese Morning Talk Show

More scenes emerge from the upcoming Gantz live-action adaptation. Will the gang survive for a sequel? Will Kishimoto's actress be quite so...bouncy?

 
With a scheduled release date of some time in 2011 the Gantz live-action movie is still quite a ways off, but in a stroke of incredible luck our AV staff members stumbled upon the above trailer footage from a Japanese morning talk/news show. What's more, after the trailer ends additional footage is shown while the show's host praters on about the actors and how popular Gantz is around the world. Speaking of casting, it's been confirmed that Kazunari Ninomiya of the boy-band Arashi will be playing the part of Kei Kurono while Kenichi Matsuyama of Death Note fame as L will take on the role of Masaru Kato.

From the looks of things the movie will adhere to at least some of the manga's storyline and dialogue, however, there were some scenes I couldn't place my finger on in the series continuity. Still, looks like a hot ticket for the patient fans of the series.

It look awesome, but they will need special effect for the boobs of half the female casting ! :p

Looks pretty cool.

Can't wait. I hope they keep the movie close to the source materiel. I really enjoyed the manga and each character story arc.

It can't be easy making it live action.
Lots of blood, alien things, and general strange weapons.  Fairly normal.
 
But characters die all the time.  Noone is guarenteed to live.   
I do hope for a little less emo though... just a touch...
 
Good to see it's not following the anime though.  Not read the manga... I really should get around to it...

@Contra: That's what drove me nuts about the anime: can't stand the emo! Just from the general continuity of the manga and the high-profile of the two lead actors we can surmise that they won't die, but everybody else, I'd imagine, is fair game. Fun stuff! 
 
@Ryokan: I can't think of a better way to utilize the wonderful technological gift that is CG.

@Ryokan: SO true cause Kishimoto had HUGE tits

Great vid, this will be interestingXD

@Shingui_Takeda: If memory serves, her nickname in the manga was 巨乳, or "huge tits." 
 
A little late, but just wanted to apologize for the quality of the video. When this trailer goes official I'll upload a better copy
