Film's N. American premiere to be held in New York on July 28

Warner Bros. began streaming a special video for the live-action film of Tite Kubo's Bleach manga on Wednesday. Voice actor Masakazu Morita, the voice actor for protagonist Ichigo Kurosaki in the Bleach anime, narrates the video.

The film will open in Japan on July 20, and will have its North American premiere with two screenings on July 28 at the Japan Cuts Festival in New York.

The cast includes:

Shinsuke Satō (live-action Gantz, Gantz II: Perfect Answer films, Oblivion Island anime film) is directing the film. [ALEXANDROS] is performing the film's theme song "Mosquito Bite," as well as the featured song "MILK."

The story will center on the "Substitute Shinigami Arc," the manga's first arc that ran from its first to eighth volume.

Kubo launched Bleach in Weekly Shonen Jump in 2001, and ended it in August 2016. Viz Media published the manga in North America digitally in English as Shueisha published new chapters in Japan. Viz Media is also publishing the manga in print.
