The red carpet premiere for the upcoming live action Lupin III film has taken place in Tokyo, Japan.

The film aired for the very first time in front of over 4,000 individuals. The event also included special guest appearances from Shun Oguri, Meisa Kuroki, Tetsuji Tamayama, Tsuyoshi Ayano, Tadanobu Asano, Jun Kim and many more.

It’s reported that the audience blew up in excitement when Oguri ran onto the stage, with a loud roar of cheering and clapping heard throughout the hall.

Oguri has expressed keen interest in performing in a sequel to the film. Looking at this turnout, I think it’s safe to say that this one is on track to do well at box office. A second (or third, if you’re counting the 1974 one) live action film might be more likely than you think!
