Live action Lupin III film takes number two spot at box office, makes roughly 440 million yen on opening weekend!
While it didn’t take the gold, the recent live action Lupin III film has stolen the silver at the Japanese box office over its opening weekend.
The film opened to the public for the first time last Saturday, on the 30th of August. An opening event was held in Tokyo, with Shun Oguri and company greeting thousands of fans who were eager to see their latest escapades.
This is a very strong start and critics have praised Jerry Yan’s performance as Michael Lee as one of the best seen throughout the film.
We can only hope that it is to receive continued success throughout its time at box office. We would love to see that proposed spin-off starring Zenigata come to light!
”Blade was Marvel’s first film success, and set the stage for further comic film adaptations. ”
And yet we haven’t had a black lead hero movie since then. Funny how that happens, huh?
still one of my favourite comic book films ever
