TOKYO TRIBE Gets A U.S. Trailer For Its October Theatrical Release!
Director Sono Sion broke the mold with last year's successful run of the hit action hip hop musical, Tokyo Tribe. Despite a few visible differences between the film and manga author Santa Inoue's 1997-2005 publication on which the film is based, the fervor has grown immensely with key performances channeled by debut actor and hip-hop artist Young Dais, and actors Suzuki Ryohei, Seino Nana, Sometani Shota and Takeuchi Riki to name a few on top of the action and visual spectacle that ensued.
In a futuristic Japan, territorial street gangs form opposing factions collectively known as the Tokyo Tribes. When one of the gang leaders breaks the fragile peace, it triggers a brutal street war for supremacy. Based on a popular Manga series and told almost entirely in rap verse, TOKYO TRIBE is an ingenious mash-up of Yakuza gang violence, martial arts action and hip-hop musical.
