While we’ve still got a wait until the August 30th, 2014 debut of the live action Lupin the 3rd film, the first theatrical poster has arrived which will start making its way into Japanese theaters shortly. It’s not a surprise that it’s focusing largely on Shun Oguri as the title character and we expect more character posters will pop up as well as an ensemble piece as well, especially as we get closer to the premiere. The project was filmed during fourth quarter of 2013 where they shot in Japan, Thailand, Hong Kong, Singapore and the Philippines. The film is directed by Ryūhei Kitamura, whose last directing project was 2008′s Midnight Meat Train and he has some good credits to his name with both Alive and Versus.
