Warner Bros. Japan this week unveiled a “main visual” poster for its upcoming live-action adaptation of Rurouni Kenshin – also known as Samurai X in the West – for the big screen, starring Takeru Sato (Kamen Rider Den-O) as protagonist Kenshin Himura. “No matter what happens, I will come back,” the tagline goes.
The new poster is in full-colour and features all the main ensemble cast members, in stark contrast to a black-and-white teaser poster for the movie, carrying the catch-copy “Beware of the nice guy” and created by famed photographer Kazumi Kurigami, that Warner Bros. Japan originally revealed back in March.
Rurouni Kenshin opens in theatres across Japan August 25. Here’s a list of cast members for the movie.
