Eita and Kenichi Matsuyama to star in "Bokutachi Kyuko: A-Ressha de Ikou"

21 October 2010 11:08 AM, PDT | Nippon Cinema | See recent Nippon Cinema news »

Eita (27) and Kenichi Matsuyama (25) will be co-starring as train otaku in a new movie by Yoshimitsu Morita (The Family Game, The Mamiya Brothers) called Bokutachi Kyuko: A-Ressha de Ikou.

Pictured left are Matsuyama and Eita, sporting “pair look” cardigans and fully ensconced in their new dweebish personas. In the film, their characters meet each other by chance while riding on the same train.

Morita, himself a train enthusiast since childhood, has been planning the film for several decades and reportedly intends to incorporate 80 different trains in the film.

Additional cast members include Keiko Matsuzaka (58) and Shihori Kanjiya (24). In keeping with Morita’s own enthusiasm, most of the main characters in the film have been named after Shinkansen and limited express trains such as “Kodama”. “Komachi”, “Azusa”, and “Hokuto”.

Filming began in early September and wrapped on October 19th. A theatrical release is slated for next fall.

Isao Yukisada's unsettling new film Parade at first plays like a sitcom about a bunch of roommates crammed into a tiny apartment, but eventually takes a much darker turn.

The action mostly revolves around that apartment, illegally shared by a group of people who represent a cross-section of Japanese youth. The owner of the apartment is Naoki (Tatsuya Fujiwara), a straight-laced teetotaler who works at a film distribution company, and who by all appearances is the most stable of the inhabitants. Less so is the unemployed Kotomi (Shihori Kanjiya), who spends most of her time waiting by the phone for a call from her distant actor lover, obsessively watching the soap opera he stars in. Aimless college student Ryosuke (Keisuke Koide) pursues a doomed relationship with his best friend's girlfriend, while Mirai (Karina), an illustrator with a seemingly permanent chip on her shoulder, spends her nights hanging out in gay bars, »
