posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
Warner Bros. Entertainment Japan began streaming a teaser video for the live-action film adaptation of Ryōsuke Tomoe's Museum (Museum - The Serial Killer is Laughing in the Rain) manga. The teaser shows both protagonist Hisashi Sawamura (Shun Oguri) and the frog-masked serial killer.
Narrator: History's most bizarre serial killer shows himself on a rainy day. Museum.
The staff also unveiled a visual for the film. The visual reveals the film's fall 2016 release window.
Principal photography for the film began last November.
Shun Oguri (live-action Hana Yori Dango, Terraformars, Space Brothers, Lupin III, Crows Zero) stars in the film as the protagonist Hisashi Sawamura, a detective in the Metropolitan Police Department's Homicide Section 1. Keishi Ōtomo (live-action Rurouni Kenshin films) is directing the movie.
Tomoe's original suspense horror manga centers on a series of bizarre murders by a man wearing a frog mask. The man calls himself a vigilante and performs the murders based on themes such as "dogfood punishment," or "punishment of knowing a mother's pain." Detective Sawamura is leading the investigation, but becomes aware that his wife is one of the killer's targets.
Tomoe serialized the manga in Kodansha's Weekly Young Magazine from 2013 to 2014, and Kodansha published the manga's third and final compiled book volume in April 2014.
