Arashi’s Kazunari Ninomiya (27) and actor Kenichi Matsuyama’s upcoming movie “GANTZ” will have its premiere screening in the United States, ahead of the Japan release, it was revealed today at a press conference in Tokyo, reports Oricon, Mainichi Shinbum Digital, and Cinema Today.


 The movie will be released in 300 cinemas across the US on January 20 2011, more than a week before its Japan release on January 29.

 The announcement was made for the first time today, and the movie’s cast could not hide their surprise.

“There are many people in different countries who love ‘GANTZ’ so I hope they’re happy that GANTZ will go out into the world,” Ninomiya said.

 It has been reported that Matsuyama was still trying to get his head around the situation.

“Why is America first.  I don’t know why Japan’s later but this is an amazing opportunity I guess,” he said as Ninomiya cheered him up.

 At the press conference, Ninomiya looked back on the five months the two actors had spent filming the movie together.

“As we were filming we tried to read each other’s moves and emotions more, so I think we got to know each other more and more,” he said.

 One co-star who said he did not have enough time talking to Ninomiya was Takayuki Yamada (27).

“I know I didn’t have many scenes in the movie, but once I tried to talk him into letting me into Arashi and he said no…I wonder if it’ll be the same with NEWS…,” he said.

Ninomiya responded by saying, “let’s talk about the movie, shall we”.

 The two also talked about how they felt about GANTZ.

“It’s taken a long time to get to today but we’re finally here with a finished product.

“It was a project that made me think in so many ways.  The human drama and the actions are incredible,” Ninomiya said.

“It took a long time to shoot, and the CG fighting scenes were really hard.  It was difficult to play a character who goes in and out of reality, but at the same time it was really fun,” Matsuyama said.

 GANTZ part one will open in Japan cinemas on January 29, 2011, and part two will be released on April 23.
