Lupin III live-action teaser arrives


Now with less Japanese TV personalities covering up the video.

Hey you! Yeah, you! Do you want to see a short teaser for the upcoming Lupin III live-action adaption? I bet you do! This 30-second clip came out a few days ago, but it was covered in the typical trappings of Japanese TV, so when I saw a cleaner version, I had to share that one instead. This clip gives you a few glimpses of the cast, some action sequences, and Lupin's voice. It definitely looks better in motion than in the still images from earlier.

The film is directed by Ryuhei Kitamura, and will arrive in Japanese cinemas on August 30th. Here's hoping it's good! If not, I'll just have to hope that Koike's Grave of Daisuke Jigen film is quality instead -- I'd like to get some awesome Lupin entertainment in my body sometime this year.

Anyone else interested?
