"Nijisseiki shônen" - a live-action movie based on the eponymous (with regard to the Japanese title) manga serial 20th Century Boys (20-seiki shônen) by Naoki Urasawa. Toho Co. Ltd. (Tôhô K.K.) plans to release the movie theatrically in Japan on August 30th of next year.

    I saw this the other day, and it's pretty good. There are some pretty enormous plotholes and some scenes just left me scratching my head, but what really shines through in this film is the humour and the relationships between the characters. The flashbacks to childhood are particularly well-handled. There's a sequel out this year, apparently.
