News Thermae Romae II Film's April 26 Date, Poster Unveiled

The second Thermae Romae live-action film will open in theaters across Japan on April 26. The date coincides with "Yoi Furo no Hi" (Good Day to Bathe). The day is a pun as "yo" is a loose Japanese reading for 4, "fu" for 2, and "ro" for 6 — thus 4-2-6 or 4-26.
The poster's tagline reads, "I came back," a reference to Arnold Schwarzenegger's catchphrase "I'll be back" in The Terminator and other films.
Hiroshi Abe is returning as the time-travelling bath architect Lucius Modestus along with Masachika Ichimura as Hadrian, Kazuki Kitamura as Ceionius, Kai, Shishido as Antonius, and Aya Ueto as Mami Yamakoshi.
