K-20 (Looks a bit like the Japanese version of The Shadow)

There is a movie coming out in Japan that some of you might find interesting. It's called K-20 and is set in 1949. The title character is a bit of a villainous Robin Hood type character, and the story involves a acrobat who is framed as the identity of K-20.


You can view two trailers for it here:

You can spot some shots of interesting attire and fedoras in the two trailers. The world presented in the film seems to have a real retro fictional pulp vibe to it. It looks like a fun flick to watch, at any rate.

Thanks for pointing that to us. It definately looks pulp-y, in a good way. Aesthetics are similar to The Spider.
I like the shot with a portrait of Tesla in the background.
I believe the lead actor was in House of Flying Daggers, which I enjoyed quite a lot.
Gotta see that when it opens stateside.

Sincerely,
The Wolf
