Bleach live action teaser trailer promises some big sword action


Death and Strawberry

We finally get to see a teaser trailer of the upcoming live action adaptation of Bleach after news of production and filming late last year. This live action adaptation is directed by Shinsuke Sato, who directed the live action film adaptations of GANTZ and the live action Death Note film sequel, Death Note: Light Up The New World. Starring Sota Fukushi as Ichigo Kurosaki, who played lead Gentarou Kisaragi/Kamen Rider Fourze in the 2011 TV show Kamen Rider Fourze.

This live action film adaptation is based on the first 8 volumes of the Bleach manga (everything before they go to Soul Society) and is slated to come out in Summer 2018 in Japan.

The great success of the live-action Rurouni Kenshin films garnered years ago pretty much opened up the floodgates to a lot of live-action film adaptations of anime and manga that would require bigger budgets due to CG and other special effects.

This movie will be distributed by Warner Bros Japan, the same folks distributing the upcoming live action Gintama film and distributed the live action Rurouni Kenshin films as well, so there is a chance that this might not turn out as bad as some may think.

Let's just hope this one turns out well, what do you think?

Red likes a lot of things from Japan and wants to share more about it with the world. He even likes the bad anime. Sometimes. As long as it doesn't have big boobs. Maybe. more + disclosures
