Film opens in U.S. in September

Funimation began streaming a trailer on Wednesday for Tokyo Ghoul S, the second live-action film based on Sui Ishida's Tokyo Ghoul manga. The video is an English-subtitled version of the film's trailer that debuted in June.

Funimation screened the film at Anime Expo as the film's United States premiere on July 6, and will open the film in theaters in the United States in September.

The film opened in Japan last Friday, July 19 on 292 screens and ranked at #7 in its opening weekend.

Masataka Kubota returned as Ken Kaneki in the film, but Maika Yamamoto replaced Fumika Shimizu as Tōka Kirishima. (Shimizu retired from acting to join the Happy Science religious organization in 2017.) Shota Matsuda joined the cast as Shū Tsukiyama, a character who appears in the manga but was not in the last film.

The first film premiered on July 3, 2017 at Anime Expo in Los Angeles. The film then opened in Japan on July 29, 2017, and ranked #5 in its opening weekend in Japan. Funimation screened the first film in theaters in the United States in October 2017.
