A promotional video for the upcoming live-action movie based on the original novels Another by Yukito Ayatsuji has been released on the official website of the project. It is a part of the currently big franchise that turned the horror work into a hit. The anime adaptation of Ayatsuji-san’s book is currently airing in Japan and internationally on Crunchyroll.
The movie, just like the anime series, will revolve around the sequence of unfavorable and horrific deaths related to a specific Japanese high school class, a series of seemingly accidental events that has happened for years. Directing the movie is Takeshi Furusawa (Twilight Syndrome: Dead Cruise), who is a connoisseur of how a good horror (or maybe not so good, depending on opinions) is made.
Premiere date is August 4, 2012
