Ken Wakui’s Tokyo Revengers manga is currently having a TV anime adaptation airing right now. However, it is also getting its own live-action movie adaptation. And now, Warner Bros. Japan has released the upcoming movie’s full trailer. Seiyuu Hiro Shimono, a huge fan of the manga, narrates the video. It also teases the movie’s theme song, “Namae o Yobu yo” by SUPER BEAVER.
The movie was supposed to premiere in October of last year. Unfortunately, COVID-19 postponed the film’s release. It even halted its production in April 2020 due to the pandemic’s outbreak. Now, it will premiere on July 9, 2021. Meanwhile, here is the movie’s key visual:
The cast includes Takumi Kitamura as Takemichi Hanagaki, Mio Imada as Hinata Tachibana, Yuki Yamada as Ken Ryuuguuji, Yosuke Sugino as Naoto Tachibana, Nobuyuki Suzuki as Masataka Shimizu, Hayato Isomura as Atsushi Sendou, Shotaro Mamiya as Tetta Kisaki, and Ryou Yoshizawa as Manjirou Sano.
