Today is an exciting day for fans of the manga/anime series, Tokyo Ghoul! A 30 second trailer for the live action film based on the popular dark fantasy/action horror franchise has been posted to the web. Check it out below in all of its glory!

The live action Tokyo Ghoul movie will star Masataka Kubota (of the live action Death Note) as Ken Kaneki and Fumika Shimizu (of the live action My Neighbor Seki) as T?ka Kirishima. The film will open in theaters on July 29th, 2017 in Japan.

The following is a synopsis for the movie’s source material:

“Ghouls live among us, the same as normal people in every way – except their craving for human flesh. Shy Ken Kaneki is thrilled to go on a date with the beautiful Rize. But it turns out that she’s only interested in his body – eating it, that is. When a morally questionable rescue transforms him into the first half-human half-Ghoul hybrid, Ken is drawn into the dark and violent world of Ghouls, which exists alongside our own.”
