New Live-Action Gintama Trailer Previews UVERworld Theme Song “DECIDED”

The official website for the live-action film of Hideaki Sorachi’s Gintama manga has begun streaming a brand new trailer.

The second trailer video for the movie features action scenes of Shun Oguri as Gintoki Sakata, the protagonist who runs the Yorozuya shop, and Tsuyoshi Domoto as Shinsuke Takasugi  and features the film’s theme song “DECIDED” by UVERworld.

Yuuichi Fukuda (live-action “HK/Hentai Kamen” and “Mr. Nietzsche in the Convenience Store“) wrote the script and directed the film.

The film will open in Japan on July 14.

The film is inspiring a live-action net show to debut on Docomo’s dTV streaming service on July 15. The show will feature the same cast and staff as the film, and will adapt the original manga’s “Mitsuba Arc” with Kii Kitano playing Mitsuba.

      • hasawa

        Posters prolly better than the whole movie

    • kashiyuka

      I don’t read mangas or watch anime really so when I first saw the first teasers for this I thought it was like a samurai period piece setting a la Rurouni Kenshin.
      Then more and more teasers came out and ???
      wtf is that giant duck tho?

          lol it wasn’t on my watch-list but guess i’ll just have to wait and see

          You made me miss Sho-chan. :(

      • The giant duck is one of the best part of the anime. The director wanted Tsuyoshi to act as Shinsuke Takasugi (and he did in the movie) but he actually wanted to be the duck instead. Definitely a flawless taste tbh. :3

          hahaha yep Elizabeth is comedy gold

          • Historia Lenz

            Love Elizabeth and Zura! :) I hope they do the KATSURAP! lmao

            • WorldGN18

              hahahaha Zura janai Katsurap yo!! He is so precious

              • Historia Lenz

                Masaki Okada is the perfect Zura! :)

    • Male:ko

      Oh god, that trailer… that visuals looks really bad.

    • WorldGN18

      Can’t wait to watch this! hope it doesn’t disappoint because I love Gintama!! and the music is always so gooood

    • REMISU

      Something about the trailer is off.. not sure how I’m going to feel about the adaptation although I’ll probably watch since it’s oguri shun and suda masaki

    • shirogane

      Shinpachi’s poster is not in here :’) forgotten yet again

      • hehe purely a mistake, i’ve updated it

    • I admittedly don’t keep up with Japanese film as much as I should, and I’m not too familiar with Gintama but I’m kind of into the set design on a purely visual level. It’s very intriguing, heavily stylized and surreal. From what I can tell, it sort of fits the mood of the anime well? I might even check this out.

    • Really excited for this as my hubby Tsuyo will act in movies again after 84 years. :P

      But what I’m afraid is the storyline as they seemed to pack basically everyone in the one movie..

    • Dalooshe

      Probably they will make fun of WB for why the visuals in Gintama aren’t as high as FMA movie lol I can’t wait for this movie because it can be made of papercuts and still pass as anything is possible and allowed in the Gintama universe! <333

      • Historia Lenz

        I will wait for WB, Jump, TV Tokyo, and Sunrise roasting. lmao

    • hasawa

      The last 10 seconds are so random lmao!!

    • Jo

      Visual effects look kinda cheap and tacky, remind me of some Japanese B-rated films with similar effects. Editing is weird, too many different and contrasting tones for one film and I don’t know, something just doesn’t feel right.

      Won’t expect much but I will watch for the cast :)

    • Historia Lenz

      I don’t like Takasugi and Shiroyasha’s hair. I will watch for the love of Gintama! I also love the cast, and this is one of my favorite arcs. I can’t wait to see the iconic umbrella scene with Gintoki and Otae. :)

    • Clement Goh

      Gintoki doesn’t even sound like himself.. what a letdown
