It is nearly a month until the live action adaption of Tite Kubo’s supernatural manga series “Bleach” hits theaters in Japan on July 20. The staff dropped a new theatrical poster that features the main cast along with two trailers showing Kisuke Urahra, Orihime Inoue and Yasutora Sado, with Ichigo’s parents Isshin and Masaki Kurosaki. The trailers – a 60 second version and full trailer – shows familiar Hollows such as Fishbone D, the first Hollow Ichigo encounters, and Grand Fisher, who killed Masaki Kurosaki.
While Bleach will be screening in Japanese theaters on July 20, the film will have its North American showing at the Japan Cuts Film Festival in New York on July 28.
