The website launchingfilms.com (which is the website of the Film Distributors' Association) is listing Rurouni Kenshin as being released in UK cinemas on October 4 by Warner Brothers.

Nobuhiro Watsuki's popular samurai manga was remade as a live-action feature film in Japan in August 2012. Its official YouTube channel adaptation is streaming a teaser trailer (below).

Keishi Ōtomo directed the film with 22-year-old actor Takeru Satoh (Kamen Rider Den-O, Rookies, Beck, Ryōmaden) as the titular character. 17-year-old actress Emi Takei plays the heroine Kaoru Kamiya. Yuu Aoi (Hana and Alice, Honey and Clover) plays Megumi Takani, Munetaka Aoki (The Last Message Umizaru, live-action The Girl Who Leapt Through Time) plays Sanosuke Sagara, and Taketo Tanaka plays Yahiko Myōjin.
