The second teaser for Shinsuke Sato’s two-part live-action adaptation of the GANTZ manga promised in the headline is available at the official website. I didn’t embed it here because it doesn’t show anything more than the firrst official trailer above.

The Japanese website for Shinsuke Sato’s two-part live-action adaptiotion of GANTZ is now featuring the official first teaser trailer. It doesn’t show much more than the previously screened TV promo videos, but the quality is much better and it gladly lacks those noisy voiceovers and random celebrity popups.
NTV has aired an almost one minute long promotion teaser for Shinsuke Sato’s upcoming two-part live-action adaptation of Hiroya Oku’s manga series GANTZ. The teaser features a few seconds of actual movie footage (we’ve seen most of it in the first TV spot), some behind-the-scenes material and a comparison of the main characters and their manga counterparts.

At least one half of you sex- and gorehounds out there should be pleased after taking a quick look at this scan with Natsuna Watanabe showing some skin for Shinsuke Sato’s live-action adaptations (coming Spring and Winter 2011) of Gantz…
Sankaku Complex has some more pictures from the films, but most of them just look like fan creations. Some real footage has already been released in form of a very short TV spot:
Aaaand another manga series that makes the jump to the big screen. According to ANN, the filming for not one , but two live-action films based on Hiroya Oku’s Gantz manga will start next month and will continue until April 2010. Masaru Kato and Kei Kurono, two college students who have an unpleasant (deadly) collision with a subway train will be played by Kenichi Matsuyama (Death Note, Detroit Metal City, Kamui Gaiden) and Kazunari Ninomiya (Letters from Iwo Jima). Shinsuke Sato (The Brincess Blade, Oblivion Island) will direct with Yusuke Watanabe (20th Century Boys) writing the script. The films are supposed to open in spring and winter 2011.
Gantz is published in Shueisha’s Weekly Young Jump magazine since 2000 and has been adapted into a anime series by Studio Gonzo in 2004. Hiroya Oku is currently working on the final chapter of the series.
I’m not a big fan of the (toned down) anime series, but I’m really curious to see how they manage to bring all those (sometimes pointless) gore- and sex sequences into Japanese theaters.
