【INUYASHIKI: An introduction】
INUYASHIKI is a "neo-virtual movie" created through the renewed collaboration of Hiroya Oku, the artist behind the hit manga GANTZ, which sold over 20 million copies, and Shinsuke Sato, the director who headed the GANTZ live-action movie adaptation, which grossed over 6.3 billion yen. Noritake Kinashi is cast in the leading role of Inuyashiki, making his first starring feature film appearance in 16 years. In this Inuyashiki, Kinashi engages in live-action wirework, showing us that he can handle not only serious acting, but also action and fight scenes. Takeru Satoh, in his first role as a movie villain, stars opposite Kinashi as the serial killer Shishigami. Satoh portrays an antihero with absolute powers who cold-heartedly engages in mass murder, and uses his outstanding physical abilities to pull off grueling action sequences without breaking character. Kanata Hongo, Fumi Nikaido, Ayaka Miyoshi and Yusuke Iseya are also part of the talent-rich cast. The climactic clash between Inuyashiki and Shishigami takes place in modern-day Shinjuku. The two take their fight to the skies above the city, providing the audience with a fast-paced virtual experience of sweeping freely through skyscrapers and soaring above the crowds on the street. The combination of live footage and computer graphics allows for a detailed and realistic portrayal of the destruction of Shinjuku, while the latest in VFX technology provides the audience with breath-taking scenes of the lead characters pulling mind-boggling weapons out of their bodies to do battle.
