VIDEO: "Thermae Romae II" Film Teased with "Terminator 2" Parody

Sequel opens in Japanese theaters on April 26, 2014

In an appropriate move following the recently released poster for Thermae Romae II, the film sequel's website posted a 30-second teaser that continues to spoof Terminator 2: Judgment Day in its opening.

 

 

The live-action adaptation of Mari Yamazaki's comedy manga follows Lucius, an architect from ancient Rome who ends up traveling through time to modern Japan, bringing the innovations of the time back with him to Rome. 

 

The sequel tasks Lucius with renovating the Colosseum, and he time-slips back to modern Japan for inspiration. This reunites him with Mami (Aya Ueto), who soon finds herself entangled with Lucius in a conflict that threatens to divide the Roman Empire. 

 

Thermae Romae II is set for an April 26, 2014 opening in Japan.
