Diner is an upcoming film adaptation of author and horror writer Yumeaki Hirayama’s 2009 novel Diner directed by Mika Ninagawa. The film features an all-star cast including Tatsuya Fujiwara, Masataka Kubota, Kanata Hongō, Shinji Takeda, Takumi Saitoh, Eriko Sato and Nobuaki Kaneko, as well as huge Japanese film industry names Shun Oguri, Anna Tsuchiya, Miki Maya and Eiji Okuda. Everyone will play the role of killers with colourful personalities.
A new trailer has just been released centred on the character Bombero (Tatsuya Fujiwara).
Tatsuya Fujiwara maintains a strong presence in the Japanese film industry as the characters he has played in his filmography to now have all stood out for their unique personalities. Bombero is no exception.
Bombero is an unhinged master chef and “king” of the diner in which the film takes place who controls everything that happens there. All of his customers are psychotic killers.
In the trailer the abnormal Bombero spits out countless lines all delivered with a cold, expressionless face: “You cannot escape from here,” “Can you work 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, without a break?,” “Will you play by my rules?”
We also see Kanako Ooba (Tina Tamashiro), a girl who is sold to the diner, have her head forced into the toilet Bombero who commands her to lick it. It’s clear to see those who are under Bombero’s roof have two options: obey or die.
But we also see how serious this sadist is when it comes to cooking, as well as a scene where he is alone holding a gun and looking concerned.
Japan’s best killers are set to feast at the Diner, with Kanako, an ordinary person, the only one there who isn’t a murderer. What will happen when the lot of them get together, and what is Bombero true objective?
Diner will be released in Japan on July 5, 2019.
