Lupin III Live Action Film, Hong Kong Version Pre-Orders and Japanese Import!

Ryuhai Kitamura's live-action movie of beloved master-thief Lupin III was one of the most anticipated anime adaptations of 2014 . It's available right now as a Japan import and will be released with English language and subtitles on March 6th.


Monkey Punch's Lupin the third/ Rupan sansei is witnessing a rejuvenation with a live-action movie directed by none other than Ryuhai Kitamura and a fifth anime series set to air in 2015. So, good news for old fans and newbies alike.

This live-action movie functions as an introductory story to some of anime's most beloved characters of all time: rapscallion Lupin, sharpshooter Jigen, master swordsman Goemon, their nemesis Zenigata and Lupin's other nemesis Fujiko.

All of those characters have been around for over 40 years and finally they get a second, high budget movie. The story revolves around a prestigious object called the "Crimson Heart of Cleopatra" which is kept in one of the most secure locations on earth.

So it starts as a heist movie but develops into intrigue, betrayal and plot twists like we expect from a Lupin the third story. Director Ryuhai Kitamura is well known for his gravity defying action scenes and over-the-top choreography.  

Lupin III is available in its original Japanese version and the Hong Kong release with English audio and subtitles for pre-order with a March 6th release date.
