Winner Takes All in KAIJI: FINAL GAME Live-Action Film Trailer

Actor Tatsuya Fujiwara plays gambler Kaiji Ito in new film co-written by manga author Nobuyuki Fukumoto

Kaiji Ito (played by actor Tatsuya Fujiwara) confronts the "Final Judgment" game during the Tower of Babel event in the 2019 KAIJI: FINAL GAME live-action film.

 

Everything is on the line and the stakes have never been higher in a new trailer for KAIJI: FINAL GAME, an upcoming live-action film that brings the Kaiji film series (based on the gambling manga by Nobuyuki Fukumoto) to a close with some of the most diabolical life-and-death games yet.

 

 

Set after the Japanese economy stalls out in the wake of the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, in KAIJI: FINAL GAME, Kaiji Ito is a down-on-his-luck gambler who is just barely scraping by when he's approached by a familiar face: Otsuki, formerly a foreman in the underground prison, now an executive representing the Teiai Group.

 

Otsuki offers Kaiji a flier for the 5th annual "youth salvation event" known as the "Tower of Babel". Convinced that he can win this time, Kaiji challenges a series of four newly-devised games - including "The Tower of Babel", "The Final Judgment", "Dream Jump", and "Gold Paper-Scissors-Rock" - for the entertainment of corrupt elites.

KAIJI: FINAL GAME is directed by Tôya Satô and features a screenplay by Nobuyuki Fukumoto and Yuichi Tokunaga, based on an original story by Nobuyuki Fukumoto. The film stars Tatsuya Fujiwara, reprising his role as Kaiji Ito from the 2009 and 2011 live-action Kaiji films. KAIJI: FINAL GAME hits theaters in Japan on January 10, 2020.
