Jun's new movie~

To be released on: May 10,2008.

Title: The Hidden Fortress/The Last Princess

Description:

The story follows two greedy peasants in feudal Japan, Tahei and Matashichi, who are returning home from a failed attempt to profit from a war between neighboring clans. En Route they encounter the remnants of the defeated tribe that consists, most notably, of a famous General and a Princess who are hiding out in a fortress in the mountains. General Rokurota Makabe and Princess Yuki need to escape into allied territory with their large supply of gold so that they can rebuild their shattered clan. To do this the Peasants are tricked into helping them, with the promise that they will receive a large share of the gold when the destination is reached. Along the way, the General's prowess is put to the test as he must guide the 4, and later 5 with the inclusion of a freed slave, through close encounters with the pursuing enemy, and out of difficult situations the bumbling peasants manage to get them into.

Info on the Filming of HYD in Las Vegas

~Luchs at the soompi forum for HYD movie has tons of info..


February 19: filming starts around 2pm-9pm.
they only mentioned tsukushi and tsukasa tho (and the antagonist i think), so i dont know if the rest of F4 will be there. shigeru is mentioned, but i don't know if she'll appear at my hotel >.>;; see my note below.

February 20: around 3pm-whenever it's done o.O
there will be scenes with tsukushi, tsukasa, F4, antagonist1, and what looks like antagonist2 because there's a scene of tsukasa chasing him xD

filming will happen all over the casino, black jack table and roulette in the pit area, slot machines, valet entrance, and restaurant.

note that the whole crew is actually staying in the US for 2 weeks, pretty much the last 2 weeks of February. They'll be filming at other locations too such as The Palms (there's a scene of tsukushi and tsukasa dining with shigeru at Alize), Bellagio, somewhere on the strip, and even at Valley of Fire.


for more details & stuff here's the link to the forum starting at page 20 going up

HYD Movie storyline:


Four years have passed since then…

“I Domyouji Tsukasa, have formally decided to get married in the spring of next year! I will be marrying the woman of my destiny, who captured my heart and never let it go, Makino Tsukushi!!”

In a hotel in Japan, Tsukasa held an extravagant press conference to announce this to the entire world. Afterwards, Tsukushi is targeted even by television programs, which are hailing her as a modern day princess.

Following that, when the Makino and Domyoji family gathered together to give their engagement presents to the couple, Tsukasa’s mother, Kaede, once Tsukushi’s divine enemy who was always opposed to the match, offeres Tsukushi a 10 billion yen tiara as a proof of her acceptance of the engagement. The tiara, named Smile of Venus, is an heirloom that has been passed down through the generations to women in the Domyouji family.

That night, as she sat in her hotel room watching the tiara sparkle, Tsukushi embraced all of her worries about how, by marrying Tsukasa, who had become successor to his famiy corporation, everything in her peaceful life was about to change. Tsukasa sensing her mental state, swore to her, ” I will protect you for the rest of my life. Come with me without any worries!” But in front of the two in that moment, suddenly, a man dressed in black crashed through the window, took the tiara, and ran away! Not knowing what was going on, Tsukushi and Tsukasa chased after the man. But in a blink of an eye, he vanished into the city.

Dumbfounded by this event, the two returned to the hotel room only to be dumbfounded again at the sight before their eyes. The window glass that had only just been broken, and the furniture that had been damaged in Tsukasa’s struggle with the man, had all been replaced as if nothing had ever happened!

This way, the situation takes on the appearance not on the tiara having been stolen, but that Tsukushi lost it herself. They must get it back at any cost! This is no time to be getting married now! Is the owner of the hotel in on it as an accomplice too? Is his goal the 10 billion tiara? Or to put a stop to Tsukushi and Tsukasa’s wedding? And who is the culprit? Is this his own intentions or is it the intentions of someone else whom this guy works for?

In order to retrieve the SMILE OF VENUS tiara, which legend has “it will bring eternal love to it’s bearer”, Tsukushi and Tsukasa gives chase through Hong Kong, Las Vegas, and throughout the world. And what about the F4 who had began walking their own paths in life? What are they doing now? Where are they?

A recent Oricon survey took a look at the sex appeal of male celebrities, asking 500 high schoolers (both male and female) which men they considered to be sexy.

KAT-TUN's Jin Akanishi came out on top, beating out the older Masaharu Fukuyama (#2) and Takuya Kimura (#3). Mocomichi Hayami has recently been getting more attention with his role in "Zettai Kareshi," placing him in 4th with L'Arc~en~Ciel frontman hyde.

Hiro Mizushima has also been rising in popularity, and he ended up at #6 on the list. The rest of the top 10 were Hiroshi Tamaki, Gackt, Jun Matsumoto, and Yu Shirota (tied with Matsumoto).
