You read that right, guys! The most anticipated movie of the year here in Asia and even worldwide, Rurouni Kenshin: The Final / The Beginning, will be Available in IMAX, 4DX, and MX4D. The social media manager of Rurouni Kenshin announced on both Twitter and Instagram.
Since May of 2020, Japanese cinemas have reopened and adapted to the new normal, with the essential covid-19 safety protocols at hand. While the country is still dealing with the pandemic like the rest of the world, several films have shown in the country. Many of the scheduled films have been moved, including Rurouni Kenshin: The Final / The Beginning, which were supposed to be open in July and August of last year.
It’s so exciting that Rurouni Kenshin: The Final / The Beginning will be available in 4D. I’ve watched the first three films four times in the cinema each, and bought the DVDs, and watching it in 4D would’ve been more exciting. Now, I’m hoping that cinemas in Asia, like here in the Philippines, would begin reopening, following strict protocols.
Rurouni Kenshin: The Final / The Beginning will open on April 23 and June 1 of this year, respectively. They will focus on Kenshin’s (Takeru Satoh) complicated relationship with his wife, Tomoe Yukishiro (played by Kasumi Arimura). The two films’ main villain is Enishi Yukishiro (played by Mackenyu), Tomoe’s brother, who believes that it was Kenshin’s fault why his sister died. The Beginning will show Kenshin’s life as the assassin Battousai before he reformed and vowed never to kill again. Viewers will also get to see how he got his X-shaped scar.
We’re super stoked about the two films! I’m hoping that I get to see in in 4D. I’ll even bring my own glasses for maximum protection. Pop culture and life goes on, and we have to live with this pandemic, not forgetting to be extra careful to limit the spread of the coronavirus.
