Takumi Kizu who plays Lucky/Shishi Red in Uchuu Sentai Kyuranger and Yūta Mochizuki who played Geki/Tyranno Ranger in 1992′s Kyoryu Sentai Zyuranger attend the Japanese premiere of the 2017 Power Rangers movie in Tokyo.
More shots from the Japanese Diamond is Unbreakable premiere and a message from Hirohiko Araki, via the film’s official site. Araki directly addresses fan criticism surrounding the movie pre-release and gives the film his full and ringing endorsement:
In the coming August, Jojo’s film will finally be released. I think
there are some manga readers who have felt very anxious about it along
with having great expectations, but the high completion level of the
film far exceeds your anticipation. The character building by the
protagonists and others dominate the scenes overwhelmingly with
cinematic suspense. The CG and the soundtrack are also amazing enough to
make the film even more exciting. Please enjoy the film breathlessly
Thank you. (Translation mostly via Crunchroll)
Araki appeared by video at the premiere to deliver his message and his thanks.
John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, J.J. Abrams and Adam Driver at the Japanese premiere of The Force Awakens.
I love the contrast between John and Adam here. John is clearly thrilled to be there, holding his lightsaber with open glee, while Adam is super intense and on the verge of returning to method actor mode on account of the lightsaber in his hand. Daisy and J.J., without props of their own, are just in chill photocall mode.
As an artist myself, I sometimes wonder “if I could gain the skills of other artists, what would I want?” but the name that always comes up in my head in the end is Yoji Shinkawa, the man in charge of designing the Metal Gear and Zone of the Enders series.
