Live-Action Tokyo Revengers Film Also Release in Hong Kong, Taiwan, Thailand

On Tuesday, Warner Bros. Japan announced that its live-action film based on Ken Wakui's Tokyo Revengers manga will also be released in Hong Kong, Taiwan, and Thailand.

On July 9, the film was released in Japan. The film was supposed to be released in Japan last October, but it was postponed until 2021 due to the spread of the new coronavirus disease (COVID-19) in the country. Due to COVID-19, production was halted in April 2020.

The film earned 696,434,440 yen (approximately US$6.31 million) in its first three days, propelling it to the top of the Japanese box office during its opening weekend. So far, the film has earned a total of 1,503,037,850 yen (approximately US$13.72 million).

The film was directed by Tsutomu Hanabusa (live-action Kakegurui, Miseinen dakedo Kodomo ja Nai). The film's theme song, "Namae o Yobu yo" (I'll Call Your Name), was performed by the rock band SUPER BEAVER.

Wakui debuted the manga in Kodansha's Weekly Shnen Magazine in March 2017, and the manga's 23rd compiled book volume was released on July 16 by Kodansha. The manga has also inspired a television anime, which debuted on April 10. In Southeast Asia, Muse Asia is simulcasting the anime.
