It’s one of the biggest questions that rose when the live-action Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure movie was announced – what do the stands look like? Now, the latest trailer for Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure finally answers that question, as well as teases the some of the movie’s action.
The movie is officially titled JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Diamond Is Unbreakable Chapter I, though the staff still hasn’t confirmed whether there will be a sequel to this movie or not. However, the staff also revealed a brand new poster visual for the movie via their official twitter page:
Yeah, don’t mess with Jousuke’s hair! The movi8e will follow Part 4 of Hirohiko Araki’s beloved manga. Kento Yamazaki was previously revealed in costume as Josuke Higashikata, the 4th Jojo and main character of the movie. They also revealed actor Yusuke Iseya in costume as the third Jojo, Jotaro Kujo. The live-action film will be adapting part 4 of the long-running series, and will be making its premiere on August 8, 2017.
The film will be directed by Takashi Miike (Crows Zero, Live-action Terraformars) and will be a co-production between Warner Brothers and TOHO. It aims to cover the entire fourth part, which follows the adventures of Jousuke, with Jotaro acting as his mentor. Because Part 4 is actually quite long, TBS producer Takashi Hirano has said that they are looking into making sequels for the film to fit the entire story of part 4.
Filming was done in the Spanish town of Sitges, though they did admit that they already knew that the original manga was set in Japan. They decided to adapt Part 4 because it featured a Japanese protagonist, therefore eliminating the “Racelift” allegations.
