GINTAMA Teases Origins, Heroes And Villains In A Brand New Live-Action Movie Teaser!


Warner Bros. Japan has had quite the full plate on its hands with several adaptations this year, one such being the upcoming release of director Fukuda Yuichi's treatment of Sorachi Hideaki's popular manga property, Gintama. If you're not at all familiar with the Shonen Jump publication, it does comes highly recommended by fans and especially those keen on the current-running anime who are now waiting the upcoming final season.

With that in mind, we now have our aforementioned Hentai Kamen 1 and 2 helmer's take om the property which has actor Oguri Shun spearheading our wacky sci-fi period action comedy set in an alternate Edo period in Japan where aliens have colonized, the samurai are obsolete, and extremist forces await their chance to seize control. For this, the latest short teaser has arrived with ample new footage following the first in December, further iterating the events from the top of the story right through to the Benizakura Arc with Oguri facing off with Arai Hirofumi in the role of Nizo, the sword assassin who becomes corrupt by a demonic mechanical sword.
The Amanto, aliens from outer space, have invaded Earth and taken over feudal Japan. As a result, a prohibition on swords has been established, and the samurai of Japan are treated with disregard as a consequence. 
However one man, Gintoki Sakata, still possesses the heart of the samurai, although from his love of sweets and work as a yorozuya, one might not expect it. Accompanying him in his jack-of-all-trades line of work are Shinpachi Shimura, a boy with glasses and a strong heart, Kagura with her umbrella and seemingly bottomless stomach, as well as Sadaharu, their oversized pet dog. Of course, these odd jobs are not always simple, as they frequently have run-ins with the police, ragtag rebels, and assassins, oftentimes leading to humorous but unfortunate consequences. 
Who said life as an errand boy was easy?
Starring next to Oguri are actress Kashimoto Hanna and actor Suda Masaki, and a range of actors present for a story far too great for one film to hold it in a single movie. So, the film's Japan release stands on July 14, and if it suits your fancy, let's hope this one garners a few more sequels and then we might even get to see an actor play the ultimate sinister entity at the root of this epic story... who knows?

Check out the new teaser below!
