Directed by Edward Zwick — The Last Samurai, Blood Diamond — Jakey G and Anne look. so. hot. It seems like they have great chemistry, or at least it’s showcased more than their bits on Brokeback Mountain ;P

Apparently the film is receiving positive buzz. I don’t think it’s Oscar bait, but maybe a nomination for Screenplay, or Globe nods for Jake and Anne.

Based on the manga by Fumi Yoshinaga, Ooku — refering to the quarters of the Shogun’s female companions — tells the story of a fictional Edo era in Japan where women have become the dominant members of society, and males are sought after to reproduce.

Actress Kou Shibasaki will be playing the female shogun.

This made me think of the comic Y: The Last Man, which was the first ever comic I got into due to my roommate wanting me to read it. If you haven’t read it, do give it a look. You can be blown away.

As for the movie, the trailer kinda game me chills. Kou Shibasaki as the Shogun, such a marvelous idea. What’s Kazunari Ninomiya to do? xD

Too many Yu Aoi updates this weekend. There’s one more coming~

Anyway, there’s a brand new Raiou Teaser, which I dunno… I feel it’s very teasing. I feel really good about it, to be honest. I feel I’m totally on board of this now, despite my initial doubts.

and I’m lazy~ I’m posting this here too. There’s also a whole bunch of short HD quality trailers for Redline, which now will open on October 9th 2010 (though it doesn’t show up on those trailers). [version 5.1, 4.1, 3.1, 2.1, 1.1]

This feels like a really good fun neurotic movie.

Plus! The Spanish poster is oh-so-gorgeous!

‘Tis the trailer season… too many of them, and they will probably keep on being released.

This time around, it’s all about Aoi Miyazaki and trailers for two of her upcoming films. First of the trailer for her — tear-jerking — drama OKAN no Yomeiri, in which her mother (Shinobu Otake), after one wild drinking night, brings a younger man who apparently is ready to marry her… out of the blue – Seriously, this starts out like a comedy… until Miyazaki’s character discovers her mom is *dramatic music* dying.

And the second one is an animated film based on the award-winning novel by Eto Mori, about a spirit who is placed into the body of a teenager who has just committed suicide, so the spirit is able to get a second chance at life. INTERESTING!
