“Kingdom,” a live-action adaptation of a popular anime series directed by Shinsuke Sato, is now playing in selected theaters.
Orphaned by war in ancient China, a young boy and his friend dream of changing their fate and becoming the world’s greatest generals. After his friend sacrifices himself to protect the future emperor, the young boy’s path to greatness is set in motion.
Helping the king reclaim the throne puts the boy’s blade to the ultimate test as they go against deadly assassins, large armies, and the dangerous mountain clan. In a country torn apart by war, only they can fight to unite the warring states.
Starring Ryo Yoshizawa (“Gintama,” “Kamen Rider”), Kento Yamazaki (“Death Note”), Masami Nagasawa (“Gintama,” “Your Name”), Kanata Hongo (“Attack on Titan”), Takao Osawa (“Wolf Children”), and Kanna Hashimoto (“Gintama,” formerly of the girl group Rev. from DVL).
Featuring the song “Wasted Nights” by One OK Rock.
