Action / comedy about a stolen bio-weapon at a ski resort hits Japanese theaters in November 26, 2016
The official trailer for Shippu Rondo ("Gale Rondo"), a live-action film based on the 2013 novel of the same name by Keigo Higashino about a stolen bio-weapon hidden in a Japanese ski resort, is now available online.
In Shippu Rondo, a terrorist steals an illegal, experimental bio-weapon from a university lab, only to die shortly after issuing his ransom demands. It falls to Kazuyuki Kurabayashi (played Hiroshi Abe), a senior researcher at the university, to retrieve the weapon and thus prevent calamity and scandal. However, the weapon is stashed somewhere on Japan's largest ski resort, and Kazuyuki is not much of a winter athlete...
Shippu Rondo is directed by Teruyuki Yoshida and also stars Tadayoshi Okura and Yuko Oshima. The film hits Japanese theaters on November 26, 2016.
