Japan Celebrates Summer Movies with Epic Crossover Event!

Avengers and Spider-Man meet Naruto, Kamen Rider, and Sadako!

Fun fact: Japan is the world’s third biggest market for movies, which means that they go nuts for summer blockbusters. And in order to help kick off a “Summer Movie! Campaign” -- calculated to help put butts in theater seats -- the heavy hitters of the silver screen gathered together for a one-in-a-lifetime photo op.

 

 

Lucky onlookers at the event were able to meet and greet with an international cast of characters culled from this summer's flicks, the likes of which truly boggle the mind, including...

 

The Amazing Spider-Man...featured in this summer's The Amazing Spider-Man!

 

Naruto Uzumaki, star of this summer's Naruto Shippuden Movie 6: Road to Ninja

 

Kamen Rider Fourze, star of Kamen Rider Fourze THE MOVIE Everyone It's Space Time!


Mei Misaki from the live-action Another movie

 

Red Buster (and new friend...)

 

Sadako from The Ring 3D

 

Earth's Mightiest Heroes...The Avengers! (I love how they deliberately gave them crummy costumes to make the Japanese super heroes look cooler...)

 

Spider-Man spun a web exactly this size...

 

And caught Sadako just like...flies!

 

WHY CAN'T THEY ALL BE IN A MOVIE TOGETHER?!?!? ARRRGHH!
