The live action movie adaptation of Sui Ishida’s Tokyo Ghoul released a new 3-minute trailer!
The video starts off with the skyscrapers of the city where the movie is set. Next, we see Kaneki Ken (played by Masataka Kubota) and his meetings with various other characters in the movie and then we see how he turns into a ghoul. There are scenes of the café where the ghouls gather and some exciting battle scenes. In the background, we can hear the theme song Banka by illion (Radwimp’s Yojiro Noda).
The distribution of Banka will start on 21 July 2017, and on the 26th, illion will release the album that includes the song, P.Y.L [Deluxe Edition].
Tokyo Ghoul will be released in Japanese cinemas on 29 July 2017. You can find a full list of the cast and staff below. And don’t forget to watch the trailer!
