The Alien hidden among us: Matthijs van Heijningen Jr. - The Thing, Johnnie To - Life Without Principle, Hiiragi - Ima Konotoki & more! - in Weekly Music and Movies Update!


Welcome to this week's Movie/Music news roundup, containing new Japanese and Hong Kong Video and Music releases from this week listed at Play-Asia.com.

The Thing is among us. It has taken the shape of a human and camouflaged as one of us. Find it and destroy it before it consumes everyone. The science fiction film is a prequel to the 1982 Blockbuster. A group of scientist has a ground breaking discovery in Antarctica. Frozen in the ice is an alien, this project is going to make them famous.

Yet how many of them can live to enjoy the fame and glory? When the Alien breaks through the ice, it engages in a killing spree. And it seems like grenade and fire couldn't destroy it properly. When its cells resurrect, the scientists discover that it's too late to flee, the Alien is hardly likely to want to forgo its meal.

How far will you go for money. The robbery of a loan shark ties three completely unrelated people together. Brought to desperation by the financial crisis, all of them have reasons to want an extra ten million. Life Without Principle is a social commentary that reflects how the crisis affects the lower middle classes in Hong Kong.

The Hokkaido girl group Hiiragi brings the fun and comforting atmosphere from Natsume Yuujinchou into their music. The opening theme to the hit TV series, Ima Konotoki has an encouraging message, carried by an energetic and up beat tune. It reminds listeners that there is always someone beside them.
