posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
The official website of the live-action film adaptation of Ryōsuke Tomoe's Museum (Museum: The Serial Killer is Laughing in the Rain) manga began streaming a teaser trailer for the film on Tuesday. The teaser reveals the film's November 12 opening in Japan.
The staff also unveiled a new visual and stills from the film.
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.
