First Look At the New Rurouni Kenshin Live-Action Film

Takeru Satoh's (Kamen Rider Den-O) official blog recently gave us a preview photo, reprising role as Kenshin Himura for the upcoming two new live-action Rurouni Kenshin movies set for Summer 2014. 
The latest Rurouni movies will be based on Kyoto arc of Nobuhiro Watsuki's original manga, specifically, the Great Kyoto Fire and Legend's End storylines. Tatsuya Fujiwara was reported to play the lead villain, Shishio Makoto. The two-part movies will be entitled Rurouni Kenshin: The Great Kyoto Fire Arc and Rurouni Kenshin: The End of a Legend Arc.
The "Kyoto Arc" took place several months after Kenshin joins the Kamiya Dojo. Shishio Makoto plans to conquer Japan by destroying the Meiji Government, starting with Kyoto. Feeling that his friends may be attacked, Kenshin goes to meet Shishio alone in order to defeat him. However, many of his friends, including a young Oniwabanshū named Makimachi Misao, decide to help him in his fight.
The first Rurouni Kenshin live action film debuted at the top of Japan Box Office when it premiered in Japan on August 25th, 2012. It also has been seen in theaters more than 2 million times, earning over 3 Billion yen in Japan.
