[J-Movie] Rurouni Kenshin II Releases Character Posters & TVCM

Warner Bros Japan releases official individual character posters for Rurouni Kenshin II: Kyoto Inferno in less than a month to go till it premieres, well, in Japan that is. Can’t say I am in love with the posters; it definitely could have been done better, but when it comes to this movie, I rather they give me a good quality movie than to fuss about the poster artworks and its quality.

There is also a TVCM that gives us a little more from what the previous trailer didn’t show, and then there’s some more promotional stills in HD, now can’t not share HD pictures, can I? 🙂

[J-Movie] Rurouni Kenshin II: Kyoto Inferno Releases Another Trailer


The long awaited live action sequel of Rurouni Kenshin: Kyoto Inferno starring Satoh Takeru has released yet another preview trailer and we get more details into the storyline of the second installment. Needless to say, the preview looks really good and why in the world it only premieres in August?! For those who is new to Rurouni Kenshin, it is an upcoming Japanese film based on the famous shounen manga series of the same name. I would strongly recommend to watch the prequel first before taking up on this to get a better idea on the main character Himura Kenshin. The Japanese rock band One Ok Rock also returns with the theme song ‘Mighty Long Fall‘ for the sequel. Continue reading

[C-Movie] Rain Casts as Crystal Liu’s Love Interest in Upcoming Chinese Movie

This news is a bit old but I couldn’t help myself upon knowing that Rain will collaborate with mainland Chinese actress Crystal Liu in the upcoming Chinese movie temporarily titled Beauty’s Dew 《紅顏露水》. Rain will play Xu Cheng Xun, supposedly a wealthy heir of a multi-corporation who disguises himself as a poor artist to pursue his love for the arts. Crystal will be Rain’s love interest and they tried to get close to each other due to opposite intentions but ended up falling in love with the possibility of a fruitless relationship. Hmm okay, the story seems cheesy but I always hold to the belief that a cheesy story can still become interesting and captivating if one puts the right elements and cast the right people in it.

[J-Movie] るろうに剣心 Rurouni Kenshin Live Action Sequels 2014

Oh my god! So excited! I was never a fan of Rurouni Kenshin anima/manga but when I was introduced to the first Rurouni Kenshin live action movie released in 2012, I fell in love with it so when a sequel was being announced, I was thrilled! I wouldn’t say the movie has made me into such a huge fan that I’d go otaku on its anime and manga but I’d definitely tune in for the upcoming movies. The first one was very well set up, filmed and action packed. To me, Japanese movie always lack the punch as compared to J-drama but Kenshin delivered the punch (or maybe I always choose the wrong movies to watch shrugs).

What’s more exciting is that there are going to be TWO sequels. SCREAMMMMM. The teaser looks good already so if those of you who hasn’t seen the first, what are you waiting for? Chop! Chop! Pali! Hayaku! Go and grab a DVD (I recommend to watch it in high definition and big screen TV) NOW!

The two upcoming Rurouni Kenshin films based on the Kyoto Arc entitled “Rurouni Kenshin: The Great Kyoto Fire Arc” and “Rurouni Kenshin: The End of a Legend Arc” are both slated to have summer 2014 release.

VIP Premiere of Kim Woo Bin’s Friend 2

The upcoming movie Friend 2 starring Kim Woo BinYoo Oh Sung and Joo Jin Mo held a VIP premiere on the 4 November 2013. Stars attending the event included Kim Woo Bin’s buddy Lee Jong Suk, Park Hyung Sik his current buddy in The Heirs, CNBlue Lee Jong Hyun and others. I was hoping other casts of Heirs would attend as well but I guess filming is tight at the moment. Surprisingly Joo Jin Mo is also missing on the night and this might be due to his current filming schedule for Empress Ki.

Friend 2 will hit the cinemas on the 11 November 2013.
