Ryūsei Yokohama, Masaki Nakao star in May 10 film

The official website for the live-action film adaptation of Ryō Asai's Cheer Danshi!! (Cheer Boys!!) novel began streaming a trailer for the film on Monday. The trailer previews the film's theme song "Kimi no Uta" (Your Song) by Mao Abe.

The film will open on May 10.

The film stars Ryūsei Yokohama as Haruki Bandō and Masaki Nakao as Kazuma Hashimoto. 27-year-old director Hiroki Kazama (After the Rain and Teiichi no Kuni spinoff mini-series) is directing the film.

The original youth novel revolves around the "slightly odd and cute" members of a cheerleading squad at a men's university, and is loosely based on the real-life men's cheerleading team "Shockers." Shueisha published the novel in 2013.

Kenichi Kondō launched a manga adaptation in April 2016, an anime adaptation premiered in July 2016, and a stage play premiered in December 2016. Funimation streamed the anime with English subtitles as it aired in Japan, and later released the series on home video.
