The official website for the upcoming live-action film adaptation of Gamon Sakurai's Ajin: demi-Human sci-fi action manga series today finally released a 90-second full trailer introducing its main cast and iconic endless die-and-revive action sequences by the protagonist Kei Nagai (Takeru Sato) and the antagonist Sato (Go Ayano). The clip also features the theme song "BLACK MEMORY" performed by four-member Japanese rock band THE ORAL CIGARETTES.
Katsuhiro Motohira (Bayside Shakedown, Psycho-Pass)-directed film is set for a release on September 30, 2017, with Toho distributing. The protagonist Kei, who was a high school student in the beginning of the manga story, is portrayed as a medical intern in his mid-twenties in the film, probably taking 28-year-old Sato's real age into consideration.
