VIDEO: Live-Action "Lupin The Third" Film Gets a Quick Preview on TV

Ryuhei Kitamura's adaptation opens in Japan on August 30

The Asachan show on TBS had the honor of presenting the first burst of footage from the upcoming live-action Lupin The Third film directed by Ryuhei Kitamura (Versus, Azumi, Godzilla: Final Wars). The film follows the formation of the world famous thief team of Lupin, Jigen, Goemon, and Fujiko, and you can see the cast in action in the clip below. 



We previously saw the cast in costume in a set of promotional photos posted a couple weeks ago. Shun Oguri plays the lead role, Tetsuji Tamayama plays Daisuke Jigen, Gou Ayano plays Goemon Ishikawa, Meisa Kuroki plays Fujiko Mine, and Tadanobu Asano—who you can hear wildly screaming at his nemesis—plays Inspector Zenigata.


Lupin the Third premieres in Japan on August 30.
