Film opened in Japan on Friday at #4

Warner Bros. began streaming a two-minute clip on Thursday from the live-action film of Tite Kubo's Bleach manga. The video previews the film's beginning, when Rukia tells Ichigo he must become a Soul Reaper in order to defeat the Hollow.

The film sold 99,000 tickets for 135 million yen (about US$1.21 million) to rank #4 in its opening weekend. The film will have its North American premiere with two screenings on Saturday 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) directed the film. [ALEXANDROS] is performing the film's theme song "Mosquito Bite," as well as the featured song "MILK."

The story centers 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.
