3 posts in this topic

Thursday's edition of the "Jump Square" magazine has leaked online early. Within its pages is an announcement that two additional live-action "Rurouni Kenshin" films have been officially given the green light with the first set to premiere next summer. Both films will cover the Kyoto arc of Nobuhiro Watsuki's original manga, which sees Kenshin placed in circumstances that lead to a direct confrontation with the skilled swordsman who replaced him as the top assassin in the Ishin Shishi.

Lead actor Takeru Satoh will return as Kenshin. No further details on any other returning cast members at the moment. The first film performed higher than expected, earning ~$70 million dollars on a very modest budget. Below, you can view a trailer from the first film that highlights the films fantastic fight choreography and swordplay.

Sweet, I'm a fan, seen all the anime and two OVAs, plus read all the manga.  This live action movie was good IMO.  The fights were just flashy enough without being way out there.
