New trailer for live-action Lupin the Third film

lup1A new trailer popped up online this week for the upcoming live-action anime adaptation of Lupin the Third. I was totally caught by surprise with the new trailer. I had no idea that a film was already in the works for the last four years. The film finally started production October of last year.

For the most part, I don’t know any of the cast. The only person I recognize is Tadanobu Asano, who plays Inspector Zenigata. Some fans may remember Asano as Hogun in Thor and Thor: The Dark World. I’m glad to see that all the main characters are there: Lupin, Jigen, Goemon and Fujiko. I also like that they redid the original theme song as well.

While I was never been a big fan of the anime live-actions, this is different, since Lupin is basically a heist/James Bond/caper like film. I think it would be pretty interesting to see, so count me in.

Lupin the Third or Lupin III will hit theaters in Japan on August 30, 2014. No word yet when it will make its way to the States.
