Japanese Trailer: Manga Adaptation “Bleach”

Warner Bros. Japan has released the teaser trailer for “Bleach,” the upcoming live-action movie adaptation of the famed manga series by Tite Kubo which was previously turned into an internationally successful anime series which concluded in 2016.

Set to hit Japanese screens in July this year, Shinsuke Sato helms the film which stars Sota Fukushi as Ichigo Kurosaki and Hana Sugisaki as Rukia with the clip a recreation of a notable scene from the anime’s pilot in which Rukia is caught by a ‘hollow’ and stabs ginger-haired teen Ichigo to transfer her powers.

A potential international release for the work has not yet been announced.
