Has anyone heard any reviews about the 20th Century Boys movie? I'm waiting with baited breath for reviews on whether it's good or not.

The entire trilogy's budget is about US$55 million, and distributor Toei expects the first movie alone to make over 5 billion yen (US$46 million).


Toei's dumb as usual.

How is that dumb? They spend $55 million to make all 3 movies. If the first one makes $46 million then the other 2 only have to make $9 million combined for them to break even.

Since Hancock is #1 I was wondering are US movies shown subbed or dubbed in Japan?

Looks like the Japanese can't resist the charms of Will Smith. Cool

samurai: They're dumb, because they're assuming there's enough of a demand for three movies, and that they can blow the Japanese equivalent of LOTR'S budget on it. What if it ends up being another Casshern for the company, financially?!

That's okay. I don't blame them.
I'm the same way.

But I will also resonate samurai's question. Are US movies dubbed or subbed in Japan when shown in theaters?

Usually a big hollywood film will have both dubs and subs playing at the multi-plexes.

Also, I really really enjoyed 20th Century Boys. While it trimmed some fat and a few scenes I thought were important, it stayed relatively true to the manga except for telling what happened on New Years Eve a bit early. The last 20 minutes of the film were amazing.
