Cast Members of Tokyo Ghoul Live Action Movie Attend Film’s Premiere & Receive Illustrations From Author Sui Ishida
The much anticipated live action adaptation of Tokyo Ghoul, the immensely popular manga series that has sold over 30 million copies worldwide, has finally been released.
The story is centered around creatures known as ghouls, who must live their lives disguised as humans while also having to feed off them in order to survive. The film made its long-awaited world premier on July 29th. To celebrate the movie’s opening, the cast made an entrance at the cinema Marunouchi Picadilly to greet everybody.
When they stepped out on stage along with the director, the entire audience gave them the warmest of welcomes with huge cheers.
Immediately after the movie’s screening, Masataka Kubota and the rest of the cast, as well as the director, appeared one after the other. Masataka expressed his heartfelt gratitude to fans’ reactions which were beyond excitement despite the screening being shown so early in the morning: “It hasn’t truly hit me yet, but when I start thinking that this day has finally come for all of you, I just want to ask each and everyone of you your thoughts.”
It’s been almost one year since the shooting of the film began. The director paid his respects to the cast and staff while celebrating the film’s premier, stating: “I am ecstatic that the day is finally here. So many people were invovled in the making of this movie, and I truly hope it shows on-screen. I hope it extends to the people around me too.”
As the end drew near at the event, a surprise present was given to the cast. At the recent premier in Japan, the original author of the Tokyo Ghoul manga Sui Ishida drew an illustration for the occasion – it was a picture of Masataka modelled as Kaneki. But to celebrate this premier, Ishida had drawn and prepared illustrations of the other cast members too.
The cast were taken aback by the gorgeousness of the drawings and all expressed their thanks to Ishida. Yo Oizumi, who played Kureo Mado, said “I want to use this at my funeral when I die!” Nobuyuki Suzuki, who played Kōtarō Amon, exclaimed “I think mine is the coolest!”
At the end of the session, Masataka spoke once again about the film. “The movie explores tragedy and the dark side of humanity, but there are other layers to its messages too, so I hope people can watch it more than once. And I hope those messages get through to people not just in Japan but overseas too.
The live action adaptation of Tokyo Ghoul is finally here. For further information, be sure to visit the official website.
