Japanese director Keishi Otomo and actors Takeru Satoh, Emi Takei and Munetaka Aoki are flying to Manila to grace the Asian premiere of Rurouni Kenshin: Kyoto Inferno.

This was jointly announced today through a statement from William Ireton, President & Representative Director of Warner Entertainment Japan Inc., and Francis Soliven, General Manager of Warner Bros. Philippines.

The invitational red carpet premiere is scheduled on Wednesday night, August 6, at SM Megamall in Mandaluyong. The Japanese talents are also expected to interact with the media and fans in a public press conference Thursday, August 7, at the Glorietta Activity Center in Makati.

In making the announcement, Ireton stated, “We are thrilled to bring director Keishi Otomo and cast members Takeru Satoh, Emi Takei and Munetaka Aoki to Manila so they can personally thank and engage with the loyal fans of `Rurouni Kenshin.' The Philippines is a very important market for the franchise as proven by the outstanding box-office success in Manila of the first Rurouni Kenshin film in 2013.”

For his part, Soliven said, “Moviegoers in the Philippines have helped create a wave of anticipation and excitement for the Rurouni Kenshin sequels and the upcoming talent visit is a much welcome recognition of the fans' ardent support.”
