A new teaser has been released for the live action movie adaptation of Tite Kubo’s Bleach!
In the trailer, we see Sota Fukushi as Ichigo Kurosaki being confronted by an evil spirit called a Hollow, which attacks humans. After that, he receives the power of a Soul Reaper (shinigami) from Rukia Kuchiki (Hana Sugisaki) and gets to slash the Hollow.
Fukushi commented on the scene, ‘There are so many great scenes, but the shocking beginning where Ichigo turns into a Soul Reaper is one of my personal favorites. Even the recording progress was amazing because everybody put in their power and we recorded with trial and error.’ Sugisaki also said about the scene, ‘Since we didn’t know at the time of the recording how the hollow would look, I used my imagination and recorded it with the guidance of the director.’
The Bleach live action movie comes into Japanese cinemas on 20 July 2018. It is being directed by Shinsuke Sato, who also directed GANTZ.
