Takeru Satoh returns in “RUROUNI KENSHIN: THE LEGEND ENDS”


September 12, 2014

TAKERU SATOH RETURNS IN “RUROUNI KENSHIN: THE LEGEND ENDS”

He took Manila by storm last August during a historic Asian premiere. And wowed audiences and critics alike with a calm but fiery performance in “Kyoto Inferno.” Now, Takeru Satoh returns to Philippine cinemas as the legendary Kenshin Himura in the final chapter of the epic “Rurouni Kenshin” trilogy – “Rurouni Kenshin: The Legend Ends.”

From the age of 14, amidst the chaos of the end of the rule of the Shoguns in 1860s Japan, Kenshin spent five years as an assassin for the anti-Shogunate forces, dreaming of an age of peace in which all could live in safety. Faster than a god, more powerful than a demon, wielding his sword in the ‘High Heaven’ style designed for use against a number of opponents, Kenshin was feared as ‘Battosai the Killer’, but began to doubt his way of life when he took the life of a young man with a bright future awaiting him.

With the fall of the Shogun and the ‘restoration’ of rule to the Emperor, Kenshin vowed he would never kill again, and set off to wander the land with a ‘back-blade’ whose cutting edge was on the back of the sword. To save the life of Kaoru, he was on the verge of returning to his old ways, but managed to resolve her difficulties and still preserve his vow.

But now, with the emergence of ruthless killer Shishio (Tatsuya Fujiwara), who is plotting to bring Japan under his control, the question presses upon him: can he beat a crazed enemy and still remain a peaceful man who does not kill?

“There are things this time that Kenshin must overcome to defeat his opponent, so Kenshin has to become a ‘new Kenshin,'” says Satoh of his character's dilemma.

Of filming the sequels, Satoh expounds “Every day brought another scene that was vital, and every scene was a highlight. Even now that filming is over, I’m still reacting to Kenshin. As I got deeper and deeper into the character, I became more and more attached to him. It’s like he’s a close friend who lives inside of me. He’s a friend that I love, that I want to protect, that I don’t want to let go. That’s how strongly I feel about him. I’ve never had this feeling about a character before. I have affection for every character I play, but this is the first time I’ve felt that I wanted to go on playing him forever. Playing him has been the kind of experience you don’t get in life very often.”

Born March 21st, 1989 in Saitama Prefecture, Satoh's first starring role came in Kamen Rider Den-O (TV Asahi, 07). He came to wide attention in the 2008 Rookies TBS-TV series, and won a Television Drama Academy Best Supporting Actor award for Mei-chan’s Butler (Fuji TV, 09). The NHK Sunday night drama Ryomaden (10) marked his first period role, and the same year he took a starring role in the Q.10 drama serial (NTV), going on to win the All Nippon Producers Association Élan d’Or Newcomer of the Year Award in 2011. In 2012 he extended his activities to the live stage, playing Romeo in a production of Romeo and Juliet. Other television work includes Tonbi (TBS, 13) and Bitter Blood (Fuji TV, 14). Following his starring role in the first Rurouni Kenshin film (12), he has appeared in Real and The Liar and His Lover (both 13).



Opening across the Philippines on Sept. 24, 2014, “Rurouni Kenshin: The Legend Ends” is distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.

“ANNIE” gets a new one-sheet art


September 11, 2014

“ANNIE” GETS A NEW ONE-SHEET ART

Columbia Pictures has just launched the new poster for its upcoming family comedy, "Annie," which is based on the Broadway classic muscial that has delighted audiences for generations. The film stars Jamie Foxx, Quvenzhane Wallis, Rose Byrne, Bobby Cannavale and Cameron Diaz.

Academy Award nominee Quvenzhane Wallis ("Beasts of the Southern Wild") stars as Annie, a young, happy foster kid who's also tough enough to make her way on the streets of New York. Originally left by her parents as a baby with the promise that they'd be back for her someday, it's been a hard knock life ever since with her mean foster mom Miss Hannigan (Cameron Diaz). But everything's about to change when the hard-nosed tycoon and New York mayoral candidate Will Stacks (Jamie Foxx), advised by his brilliant VP, Grace (Rose Byrne) and his shrewd and scheming campaign advisor, Guy (Bobby Cannavale), makes a thinly-veiled campaign move and takes her in. Stacks believes he's her guardian angel, but Annie's self-assured nature and bright, sun-will-come-out-tomorrow outlook on life just might mean it's the other way around.

Produced by Will Smith, Jada Pinkett Smith, and Jay-Z, “Annie” was penned by Emma Thompson and Aline Brosh McKenna and directed by Will Gluck.


Opening soon across the Philippines on January 8, 2015, “Annie” is distributed by Columbia Pictures, local office of Sony Pictures Releasing International.

September 10, 2014

RUPERT GRINT VOICES AMADEO IN “FOOSBALL: THE UNBEATABLES”

Rupert Grint of the worldwide phenomenon “Harry Potter” franchise voices Amadeo, a gifted young boy with a unique gift as the best foosball player ever in the upcoming animated movie for the family – “Foosball: The Unbeatables” (titled in the US as “Underdogs” from its original Argentine title “Metegol”). The movie was supervised by Sergio Pablos who is also known for his works in the hit movies “Rio” and “Despicable Me.”

In their small town, there isn’t a single challenger good enough to beat Amadeo at foosball. But the rest of his life isn’t as shining as his foosball achievements.

Soon enough, Amadeo grows up to be the best foosball player of all time. And even though he is a good-natured likable young man, his time is spent playing foosball and little else. Then one day, Amadeo finds his ordinary routine derailed by the return of his childhood rival Flash, a kid his age who has come seeking revenge for a match he lost to Amadeo years back. Despite his fame and fortune from being the best soccer in the world, Ace is bent on crushing Amadeo, destroying the bar where he works and his foosball machine, on winning Laura’s affections and even turning the village into an “Ace” theme park and stadium.

“THE PRINCE” faces old enemies for taken daughter


September 10, 2014

“THE PRINCE” FACES OLD ENEMIES FOR TAKEN DAUGHTER

Director Brian A. Miller dives headlong into the gritty underworld of territorial gangsters and revenge in the action-thriller, “The Prince.” Paul Brennan (Jason Patric) is a former mob enforcer with two decades between him and an awful mistake that took the lives of Omar (Bruce Willis), a very powerful man’s family.

“When Paul’s daughter goes missing in the city where he is a wanted man, he has to go back into this past,” begins Miller. “Bit by bit, as we pull that string, it leads us to all these new dimensions, back into the sins of his past life as he seeks redemption for the mistakes he had made. It’s a genre story turned upside down on its head, and that really attracted me to the script.”

“When Angela (Jessica Lowndes) first meets Paul he is just Beth’s (Gia Mantegna) dad, this mechanic from Mississippi; I don’t really know what I got myself into,” begins Lowndes, whose character comes off as the quintessential party girl, always chasing the next high. “Paul offers up this road trip to New Orleans to find his daughter and Angela thinks why not, let’s go party and have fun. But it turns out we have people chasing us and he is this bad ass and he’s killing people.”

John Cusack plays Sam, an old friend or associate of Paul’s. When he comes back to town and gets into trouble he asks Sam for a favor because of their prior association,” begins Cusack, whose character is reminiscent of Rick in Casablanca. “It’s a troubled relationship because of Paul’s past.” Paul and Angela make their way through the luxurious lobby of the Sam’s Goldmine Casino and Hotel. In the presidential suite, Paul explains that his daughter has gotten herself in with a bad crowd and someone called The Pharmacy. Sam knows the lunatic and can’t get involved, much less even be seen with Paul, who understands and explains he just needs a safe place for Angela. As Paul leaves, Sam warns that a lot of their guys are now with Omar.

Miller shot the fillm on locations throughout Mobile, Alabama. “I have to say, the production value that we got from Mobile is quite spectacular,” says Miller enthusiastically of the city that turned itself into a back lot and doubled as New Orleans for a large portion of the shoot. Adds producer Randall Emmett, “Brian fell in love with Mobile and thought it was just ideal for The Prince. The city worked with us and the community really embraced us, so it made our production really work.”




“The Prince” opens September 10 in theatres nationwide from Axinite Digicinema.

Denzel Washington's got your back as “THE EQUALIZER”


September 9, 2014

DENZEL WASHINGTON'S GOT YOUR BACK AS “THE EQUALIZER”

Two-time Academy Award®-winning actor Denzel Washington is a man constantly on the move. Never comfortable repeating himself or his successes, Washington always searches for new challenges through his numerous and varied film and stage portrayals. From “Glory” to “Cry Freedom”; from Shakespeare's “Richard III,” to “Training Day,” to his most recent critically acclaimed performance in “Flight,” Washington has amazed and entertained audiences with a rich array of characters distinctly his own.

Now, Washington stars in Columbia Pictures' action-thriller “The Equalizer” as the mysterious Robert McCall whose driving force is an innate sense of justice.

“Robert McCall has done a lot of bad things in his past, and he’s trying to get beyond that – he’s not proud of his past, and he’s trying to do better,” Washington explains. After leaving that past behind to lead a quiet life, he finds that desire for justice reawakened when a young girl – abandoned by the rest of the world – needs his help. “He didn’t like himself – he never lost his skills, he made a conscious decision to put that behind him. It’s when he meets an innocent young girl who is being abused, that he decides to do something about it.”

“McCall’s motivation is simple,” says Todd Black, a producer of the film. “When there is an injustice to an ordinary person, someone who can’t defend themselves, because they’re not capable or they don’t even know where to start, he will take care of it – violently or nonviolently.”

“We’d all like to believe that there’s a guy out there who could help us, if only we could find him,” says producer Jason Blumenthal. “If somehow we could reply to an ad on the Internet, desperately pleading for help when no one else would take that call. I’d like to believe that in my hour of need, somebody out there would listen to me – somebody would drop everything and help me, just because. And that’s the Equalizer.”

In his role as a producer, Washington worked with screenwriter Richard Wenk to realize the role he wanted to play. He says they kept asking the basic questions – “Who is he? What makes him tick? What are his flaws? What is he trying to get over? I think that long ago, he started out as a man who wanted to help people, and it turned into something else. He had to put that all behind him, to shut the door. And this young innocent opens that door again.”

Similarly, Washington felt great confidence in his director, Antoine Fuqua. “He’s very talented,” says the actor. “We sent him the material and he responded – we sat down and he had tons of ideas – and it was a done deal.” Later, on set, that confidence paid off. “Antoine had the vision for the film – he was doing close work with specialized cameras, all of that stuff. But I never worried about any of that. The camera is Antoine’s area of expertise – I don’t have to worry about that. I just worry about the acting,” he smiles.

Since “Training Day,” Fuqua and Washington have had several opportunities to re-team, but “The Equalizer” is the first that actually brought them back together. “We didn’t force it,” says Blumenthal. “It wasn’t ‘Let’s get the guys that did Training Day together.’ That’s not a reason to make a movie. I think Antoine was looking to make a movie where he could get back into character and really understand what makes a person tick. You can only build a great character if you’ve got an unbelievable actor, and of course, we had Denzel. So the challenge then became finding a character that Denzel could sink into and a world that Antoine could bring to life.”




Opening across the Philippines in October 01, 2014, “The Equalizer” is distributed by Columbia Pictures, local office of Sony Pictures Releasing International.

New comedy “AND SO IT GOES” exclusive at Ayala Malls Cinemas


September 9, 2014

NEW COMEDY “AND SO IT GOES” EXCLUSIVE AT AYALA MALLS CINEMAS

From acclaimed director Rob Reiner (“The Bucket List,” “When Harry Met Sally”) comes the uplifting comedy “And So It Goes” starring Michael Douglas and Diane Keaton. The film will be shown exclusively at Ayala Malls Cinemas nationwide starting Sept. 24.

In the film, there are a million reasons not to like realtor Oren Little (Douglas), and that's just the way he likes it. Willfully obnoxious to anyone who might cross his path, he wants nothing more than to sell one last house and retire in peace and quiet -- until his estranged son suddenly drops off a granddaughter (Sterling Jerins) he never knew existed and turns his life upside-down.

Clueless about how to care for a sweet, abandoned nine-year-old, he pawns her off on his determined and lovable neighbor Leah (Keaton) and tries to resume his life uninterrupted. But little by little, Oren stubbornly learns to open his heart - to his family, to Leah, and to life itself.



"I basically make the same movie over and over again," Rob Reiner laughs. "The woman is always more advanced and more developed and emotionally able. And the man is like an idiot running around, trying to figure it all out, until he realizes that he should be with the woman." And so it is with “And So It Goes.”

The idea for the film came about during the press junket for Reiner's 2007 hit, “The Bucket List,” starring Jack Nicholson. "Every single journalist asked the same question," the director recalls, "'what's on your bucket list?" Reiner's longtime producing partner, “And So It Goes” producer Alan Greisman, remembers the classic Nicholson answer. "He thought for a minute and then he replied, 'I sit in my living room with my feet up on the coffee table smoking a cigarette, and I ask myself: is there time for one more great romance?' I went up to Rob and said, 'This is a great idea for a movie.'" The gears began to turn, and the subject of a new picture was hatched. Explains Reiner, "That struck me - people finding each other at a certain point in life, a later point in life."



Scribe Mark Andrus (“As Good As It Gets”) came aboard to develop a script for the film. "The main idea," says Reiner, "is about people who have decided that they're done, they're not going to be involved romantically again. And somehow they find each other." Under Andrus' pen, the plot expanded to bring in broader themes about second chances in life - not just in romance, but also in career choice as well as for families in conflict.

Therein lies a great humanity beyond the comedy - which in turn helped to attract great talent. Recalls producer Mark Damon, "I first read `And So It Goes' on a flight to Toronto. Between my laughter and my tears, I realized I was reading an exceptional script that could make an exceptional film in the right hands and with the right cast. With a pedigree of Academy Award nominees and winners, I knew this would be a film I would be proud to be involved with, proud to produce, and proud to distribute. Rarely had I been so sure about a film's prospects, and as soon as I got off the plane, I called Rob Reiner and Alan Greisman of Castle Rock, and told them 'I'm in.' Rob has a sure hand as a director, actors love him, and he gets wonderful performances out of them. It was exciting to see him bringing the promise of this script to life on the big screen."

One day can change everything in “ALEXANDER AND THE VERY BAD DAY”


September 9, 2014

ONE DAY CAN CHANGE EVERYTHING IN “ALEXANDER AND THE VERY BAD DAY”

Walt Disney Pictures presents the new family comedy “Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day” inspired by the 1972 children’s classic by Judith Viorst.

The film follows the exploits of 11-year-old Alexander as he experiences the most terrible and horrible day of his young life—a day that begins with gum stuck in his hair, followed by one calamity after another. But when Alexander tells his upbeat family about the misadventures of his disastrous day, he finds little sympathy and begins to wonder if bad things only happen to him. He soon learns that he’s not alone when his mom, dad, brother and sister all find themselves living through their own terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day. Anyone who says there is no such thing as a bad day just hasn't had one.

“It’s a fun family film that’s in the vein of the John Hughes movies,” says director Miguel Arteta. “Alexander thinks his family's too busy to notice how terrible his day has been, and his wish for them to have an equally bad day so that they can understand what it's like actually comes true.”

Steve Carell (“Crazy, Stupid Love”) and Jennifer Garner (“Juno”) star as Alexander’s upbeat parents. The veteran performers are joined in the film by a trio of young talent that includes 16-year-old Dylan Minnette (TV’s “Lost,” “Prisoners”) as Alexander’s older brother, Anthony; 15-year-old Kerris Dorsey (“Moneyball”) as sister Emily; and 12-year-old Australian native Ed Oxenbould, who makes his big-screen feature debut as the film’s title character, Alexander. Twins Zoey and Elise Vargas (“The Neighbors,” “True Blood”) portray baby brother Trevor.

Emmy® winner (and Golden Globe® nominee) Megan Mullally (“Will and Grace”) also joins the cast, along with Jennifer Coolidge (“American Pie,” “Legally Blonde”) and Bella Thorne (“Shake It Up!”).

The big-screen adaptation of “Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day” represents a collaboration of some of the greatest creative minds in family entertainment today. The film is produced by Shawn Levy (“Night at the Museum,” “Date Night,” “Real Steel”), Emmy® nominee and CEO of The Jim Henson Company Lisa Henson and 21 Laps Entertainment President Dan Levine. It’s executive produced by industry veteran Philip Steuer (“Saving Mr. Banks,” “Oz The Great and Powerful,” “The Chronicles of Narnia” trilogy) and Jason Lust.

Arteta’s key filmmaking team includes cinematographer Terry Stacey (“Salmon Fishing in the Yemen”), two-time Oscar®-nominated production designer Michael Corenblith (“The Blind Side”), and two artists with whom he has previously collaborated: Oscar®-nominated film editor Pamela L. Martin (“The Fighter”) and veteran costume designer Nancy Steiner (“Little Miss Sunshine”).




Opening across the Philippines on Oct. 15, 2014, “Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day” is distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures International through Columbia Pictures.

Creating “THE MAZE RUNNER” world


September 9, 2014

CREATING “THE MAZE RUNNER” WORLD

It will take wit, agility, speed and strength to survive a labyrinth of dangerous walls with predators ready to kill at an instant in the upcoming young adult movie “The Maze Runner.”

Based on the bestselling YA series of novel of the same title by James Dashner, “The Maze Runner” brings a group of young boys (and a girl) together in a secluded place known as the Glade where they come and stay but does not have any idea of who they really are and what brought them there. Starring, Dylan O’Brien, Ki Hong Lee, Kaya Scodelario, Aml Ameen, Will Poulter and Thomas Brodie-Sangster, the movie is directed by Wes Ball who envisioned the Maze walls to be modern and ancient. The towering structure’s creeping vines and seemingly empty corridors mask a threat that terrifies even the most hardened and veteran Gladers. The hidden creatures, which the kids call Grievers – though none has actually seen one, preys on those who stay too long in the Maze. This means the boys must get out of the Maze before its walls close because nobody survives a night there.

Check out the cast and filmmakers video here on the making of the walls below.




“THE MAZE RUNNER” opens September 17 in cinemas from 20th Century Fox to be distributed by Warner Bros.

Ben Affleck's toughest challenge yet on being married in “GONE GIRL”


September 8, 2014

BEN AFFLECK’S TOUGHEST CHALLENGE YET ON BEING MARRIED IN “GONE GIRL”

The page-turner tome “Gone Girl” written by Gillian Flynn about a woman gone missing on the day of their fifth year wedding anniversary and a marriage believed to be on the rocks is brought to life by Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike under the direction of David Fincher.

From the bestsellers’ shelves, “Gone Girl” reveals the real Mr. and Mrs. Dunne as they go through the motion of making their marriage work. Nick (Affleck) decides to move back to his hometown in Missouri from New York after being sacked as a print journalist, bringing his wife Amy (Pike) with him. Embittered by his current state due to the advent of online publishing, the couple has slowly drifted apart, with Nick spending most of his time at a local bar he bought and manages while Amy is mostly home and explores the community with a few newfound friends.

Unexpectedly, Nick’s sleepy town has awakened due to Amy’s sudden disappearance, what was left are confusing clues as to why and how his wife had gone missing. At the scene of the crime within the Dunne’s home are clear signs of struggle – shattered glasses and an overturned coffee table but there were no signs of forced entry, leaving investigators to think that the prime suspect they’re looking for might be Nick.

In recent interviews, Pike stated that the movie will make people re-examine their thoughts on marriage. “That aspect of marriage as a con game, or whatever. The idea that we perform a sort of ideal version of ourselves that the other person wants. We perhaps belie our true nature in order to perform to the ideal. David and I talked a lot about living in an age of rampant narcissism.”

Likewise, Affleck shared that ““I actually think this is the perfect date movie, not because I think it’ll result in divorce – I think that’s just David’s fantasy – but because it’s the kind of movie that a husband and wife could talk about afterwards. I think a man and a woman would have different takes on what happens. The last time I was in a movie that I thought polarised men and women in an interesting way was ‘Chasing Amy.’ That was quite some time ago.”


“Gone Girl” opens in cinemas nationwide on October 8 from 20th Century Fox to be distributed by Warner Bros.

In September 2011, moviegoers were introduced to Winter, the dolphin whose astounding true story was dramatized in the family film “Dolphin Tale.” She had already been something of a local celebrity at the Clearwater Marine Aquarium (CMA), the non-profit marine animal rescue facility on the Gulf Coast of Florida. After the release of the movie, however, her fame grew exponentially, as did her impact on CMA, as well as on people the world over who were inspired by her courage and resilience.

Charles Martin Smith, the director of the original film, who returned to write and direct the sequel, Warner Bros.' new family adventure “Dolphin Tale 2,” offers, “I think it was a combination of factors that caused ‘Dolphin Tale’ to resonate with audiences. The idea that a dolphin could have so desperate an injury and lose her tail, and that a team of strangers would rally around her to save her with a first-of-its-kind prosthetic, was so improbable and yet it’s true. And Winter’s own spirit moved people so deeply. So many have come up to me and said how affected they were by the film. I thought we would touch people with ‘Dolphin Tale’; I didn’t realize how much. It has been truly gratifying.”

Despite its success, the filmmakers never envisioned a sequel to “Dolphin Tale,” as it was based on actual events. Producer Richard Ingber, who had been responsible for bringing Winter’s story to the attention of Alcon Entertainment, explains, “In terms of movies, true stories are usually told and then you go home. We didn’t even have any thoughts that there could be a sequel.”

However, on the very night that the cast and crew had gathered to celebrate the completion of the first film “an event happened that changed everything,” Ingber continues. “We were all at the wrap party when the Aquarium got the call that a baby dolphin was in trouble and needed rescue…and was there any possibility that they could bring her to CMA.”

There were fears the infant dolphin was too young even to survive the trip, but she did, resulting in her new name: Hope.

David Yates, the CEO of the Clearwater Marine Aquarium and an executive producer on “Dolphin Tale 2,” recounts, “Everything unfolded that night. The fact that Hope came to us during the wrap party of ‘Dolphin Tale’ was incredible enough, but the similarities between Winter’s rescue and Hope’s rescue are unbelievable. They’re both Atlantic bottlenose dolphins; they are both females; they were both about the same age when they arrived; and they were found in the same part of Florida by the same rescue team. The odds of all that happening are so small.”

When the van carrying CMA’s newest resident pulled in, much of the cast and crew were there to witness her being hand carried directly to the pool, where staff members were ready and waiting to care for her.

Harry Connick, Jr. recalls, “Everybody was oohing and aahing because she was just so adorable, never thinking that what we were watching would, in time, prompt a completely new storyline that would bring us back together.”

It wasn’t until months later, when the filmmakers saw the response to “Dolphin Tale,” that they began considering the idea of continuing Winter’s story with the addition of Hope. The baby had been stranded too young to have learned the life skills necessary to survive in the wild, so she, like Winter, will always reside at CMA, where the two have become poolmates.

As with the arrival of Hope, “Dolphin Tale 2” depicts another true and equally life-changing event—the sad passing of Panama, an elderly dolphin who was one of CMA’s most beloved residents and Winter’s surrogate mother. In the film, her death means that Winter will need a new companion, as dictated by the USDA.

Smith says change became a central theme of his screenplay, for both the animals and the humans. “Time goes on and change is inevitable. Children grow up, there is death and new life… We can’t turn back the clock, so we just have to embrace what comes. That’s what this film is about to me.”




Opening across the Philippines on Oct. 08, 2014, “Dolphin Tale 2” is distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment company.

September 7, 2014

There's really only one male model that I'm crushing on right now (well, as far as the Philippine modeling scene is concerned). And I think you all know that that guy is none other than....

Clint Bondad.

CHOZ! I'm just so obvious.

So, here. Lemme just share with you what to me seems like a "Throwback Thursday" set card of his. He's kinda beefier and hunkier now so I reckon this is one of his earlier set cards.

I still love him, though. His past. His present. His future. Our future....LOLZ!

The feisty women of “RUROUNI KENSHIN: THE LEGEND ENDS”


September 4, 2014

THE FEISTY WOMEN OF “RUROUNI KENSHIN: THE LEGEND ENDS”

A young, fencing mistress devoted to a reformed assassin. A beautiful healer making amends for her past. And a former courtesan madly in love with a psychopath. Meet Kaoru, Megumi and Yumi, the strong women characters who make their mark in Warner Bros.' “Rurouni Kenshin: The Legend Ends,” the final chapter to director Keishi Otomo's blockbuster “Rurouni Kenshin” trilogy.

Popular Japanese actress Emi Takei plays Kaoru Kamiya. As the young fencing mistress of the Kamiya Dojo, which she inherited from her father, she teaches the sword as ‘a way of life, rather than of death’. She is strong-willed but also capable of great consideration for others. She refuses to ask about hero Kenshin Himura’s past; ‘Everyone has things they don’t want to talk about,’ she says, but she is terrified that Kenshin will return to his old ways, and wants him to keep his vow.

“Director Keishi Otomo asked me this time to play a Kaoru who has matured a little,” explains Takei. “And this time, Kaoru fights, too! Not with a wooden sword, but with a halberd. They let me do some real stunts, so it was a lot of fun. People love the character of Kaoru, so I’ve tried to play her as someone who deserves that. On these shoots, you have to be living in the world of the film, and the director gives hints, but he never tells me exactly what the answer to any questions that arise might be. You have to find it in yourself and express that. I’m really honored to be in a film like that.”

Multi-awarded actress Ya Aoi portrays Megumi Takani. A brave, determined, and also beautiful physician, the descendant of a long line of doctors whose family was wiped out in the wars accompanying the end of the Shogunate. She began making opium to keep herself alive, but reformed after Kenshin Himura saved her life, and now dedicates herself to the service of those in need. She is enraged when the new government puts pressure on Kenshin to help them by threatening to reopen her past in the opium trade. Her habitual sarcasm masks a warm heart, and she encourages Kaoru to follow Kenshin to Kyoto by suggesting that she will regret not going. When Sanosuke is setting out as well, she gives him a healing salve, the secret of which is known only to her family.

Filipino-Japanese star Maryjun Takahashi appears as Yumi Komagata. A bewitchingly beautiful woman, deeply in love with Shishio, and always by his side. Originally a courtesan in Edo’s Yoshiwara pleasure quarter, she took great pride in her work there, but when the new government, under Western influence, declared the sale of women to be barbaric, she was forced to leave. Declaring the new government to be comprised of sub-human animals, she joined Shishio in his hatred of it. As one of his inner circle she benefits greatly from his care, but in her heart she regrets that she cannot be of more use to him in his battle.



Based on the Kyoto arc of the popular manga series written and illustrated by Nobuhiro Watsuki, the “Rurouni Kenshin” sequels follow the story of Kenshin Himura (Takeru Satoh), a legendary swordsman in the wars accompanying the turbulent fall of Japan's Shogunate in the 19th century. Once feared as 'Battosai the Killer', he has adopted a peaceful life since the arrival of the 'new age'.

But Makoto Shishio (Tatsuya Fujiwara), the 'Shadow Killer' and successor to Kenshin's position as the deadly assassin, has since then been scheming in the Kyoto underworld, raising an army of disaffected former samurais with the aim of overthrowing the new regime.

“Rurouni Kenshin: The Legend Ends” stars Takeru Sato (Kenshin Himura), Emi Takei (Kaoru Kamiya), Munetaka Aoki (Sanosuke Sagara), Kaito Oyagi (Yahiko Myojin), Yu Aoi (Megumi Takani), Yosuke Eguchi (Hajime Saito), Min Tanaka (Nenji Kashiwazaki), Tao Tsuchiya (Misao Makimachi), Ryunosuke Kamiki (Soujiro Seta), Maryjun Takahashi (Yumi Komagata) and Tatsuya Fujiwara (Shishio).



Opening across the Philippines on Sept. 24, 2014, “Rurouni Kenshin: The Legend Ends” is distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.

Who is that "gay" I see staring straight back at me...?

Why is my reflection someone I don't know?
