We recently saw a bunch of photos from the upcoming live-action Golden Kamuy film, which is set to bring its take on Satoru Noda’s manga to Japanese cinemas on January 19, 2024. Now there’s a new trailer showing off more footage and previewing the theme song, “Kagayakerumono” by ACIDMAN.

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!
