Japan’s live-action Golden Kamuy film is set to hit screens January 19, 2024. Now the film, based on the manga by Satoru Noda, has released a boatload of stills from the set.
The film is directed by Shigeaki Kubo (HiGH & LOW series) and stars Kento Yamazaki as Saichi Sugimoto and Anna Yamada as Asirpa.
Here’s how Viz describes Golden Kamuy:
In the early 20th century, Russo-Japanese War veteran Saichi Sugimoto searches the wilderness of the Japanese frontier of Hokkaido for a hoard of hidden gold. With only a cryptic map and a native Ainu girl to help him, Saichi must also deal with every murderous cutthroat, bandit and rogue who knows about the treasure!
“Immortal Sugimoto,” a survivor of the assault on 203 Meter Hill during the Russo-Japanese War, now scratches out a meager existence in the post-war gold rush in the wild frontier of Hokkaido. A chance encounter in the woods puts a map to a hidden fortune of Ainu gold in his hands, but Sugimoto is not the only interested party, and everyone who knows about the gold will kill to possess it!
