Tokyo Ghoul Live-Action film gets a pretty dark trailer

Synopsis: “Ghouls live among us,​ the same as normal people in every way – except their craving for human flesh.​ Shy Ken Kaneki is thrilled to go on a date with the beautiful Rize.​ But it turns out that she’s only interested in his body – eating it,​ that is.​ When a morally questionable rescue transforms him into the first half-human half-Ghoul hybrid,​ Ken is drawn into the dark and violent world of Ghouls,​ which exists alongside our own.​”

Sounds like a real dark story, but the trailer looks like some over-the-top fun. Tokyo Ghoul was a mega-hit anime and seeing a live-action version would be a trip for sure. This is (director) Kentarô Hagiwara’s first full-length film and he seems to have captured a distinct visual style that any fan of bizarre action flicks might be able to enjoy.
