First images of Lupin III live-action film actors in costume



A while back we heard tale of a live-action Lupin III film on the way. Now, we've gotten our first look at the actors in costume, so you can judge them! Yes, judge them. Who looks like a washed-up cosplayer? Who looks like a perfect representation of the original character? Are they terrible and bad and awful and everything in between?!

Actually, I think they look pretty good! It's always hard to transition from illustrations to live actors, but they don't look too shabby! Sure, you can nitpick some small details, but overall they did a solid job capturing the essence of each character. I particularly like Jigen and Zenigata -- Jigen's floppy hat looks perfect. What do you guys think?

The film arrives in Japan on August 30th. Check the official site for wallpapers and more.
