Lupin Live Action Movie Opens August 30th

After first tackling playing Kudou Shinichi in the earlier Detective Conan live action specials, actor Oguri Shun is now taking on the role of Lupin the Third in the character’s latest foray into film.

lupinthethirdmovieposterThe high-budget movie follows the crossover Lupin the Third vs. Detective Conan that opened in December of last year in Japan and was the most successful film in either franchise’s history, making ¥4.25 billion ($41.2 million) and pulling in 3.55 million admissions. Whether this solo entry in live-action form can match or exceed those numbers is still to be determined.

This latest globe-trotting Lupin feature sports an international cast and was shot on-location in Japan, China, Singapore, Thailand, and the Philippines. It bears noting that Lupin was previously the subject of an earlier live action effort in the form of 1974′s offbeat attempt to bring the character to life Lupin the Third: Strange Psychokinetic Strategy.

Lupin the Third premieres August 30th in Japanese theaters and is expected to open in various international markets in the near future. You can see more and stay updated on the film on its official website Lupin-the-Movie.jp.
